This 3 day Congo gorilla tour starts in Rwanda, you will then transfer to Virunga National park in Democratic republic of Congo via Uganda’s boarder. The park has five families of gorillas with three groups that are most tracked.

Day 1: Transfer from Kigali to Kisoro border town in Uganda

You will be picked by the driver/guide and transfer to Kisoro at the Uganda-Rwanda border; a journey that will take you through a scenic view of beautiful Rwanda’s rolling hills passing via Ruhengeri in the northern part of Rwanda and continuing to Cyanika. We shall finalize the border arrangements and cross into Uganda. You may then take a guided nature walk, visit the natural, beautiful-looking Lake Mutanda, surrounded by the volcanoes; take a walk on the Lake shores. Dinner and overnight stay at Travelers Rest Hotel/Kisoro tourist hotel.

Day 2: Gorilla trekking in Virunga national park.

Transfer to the Bunagana at the DR Congo border, cross and drive to the Park Headquarters to be briefed about gorilla tracking dos and don’ts  before setting off into the forest to track gorillas in Parc National des Virunga of Congo for the incredible experience.  In the course of searching for the Mountain Gorillas, you will be exposed to excellent birding and primates such as the Golden Monkeys, Blue Monkeys, Black and White colobus monkey, and giant forest hogs among others. You will stay with these beautiful primates for one hour for observation and photography. Gorilla tracking through the forest, hills and swamps can be tough, arduous and tiring, sometimes taking up to 8 hours in the forest. But coming face to face with the great primates is well worth the effort. Return to Kisoro in Uganda. Dinner and overnight stay at your hotel.

 

 

Day 3: Transfer back to Kigali.

After your relaxed breakfast, set off for Kigali in Rwanda. On your way to Kigali, several stops will be made to admire the amazing scenery of Rwanda’s topography, photography and shopping from the local markets.
