DAY 1 - ARRIVAL IN KIGALI - CONGO

Welcome to Kigali, Rwanda! Upon arrival at Kigali International Airport, you will be warmly welcomed at arrivals by a representative of African Unique Safaris and Tours and your driver guide.  They will take you for a very good coffee in Kigali and provide a thorough tour briefing before you head off for the Rwanda/Congo border.  There you will be assisted in crossing the border where our Congo driver/guide will be ready to greet you and take you to your lodge in Virunga National Park.

DAY 2- GORILLA TREK VIRUNGA NATIONAL PARK CONGO/ DEPARTURE

After an early breakfast depart to the starting point for your Gorilla tracking experience.

After completing the park customs, we embark on a once in a life time experience of tracking mountain gorillas. These massive primates are extremely rare, with less than 800 living today. You will get within meters of the family, and be privileged to spend an hour among them.A visit with a mountain gorilla family is a life changing experience. Mountain gorillas are highly intelligent, good natured, and fascinating to observe. The silverback’s powerful presence is awe-inspiring, yet his calm clearly earns him the title, “gentle giant”. People are equally struck by the tenderness and care that mothers show their young. And then, of course, there are the juveniles who spend most of every waking hour at play and never cease to make visitors smile.

Back at the lodge, refresh, have Lunch and drive back to Kigali airport for your flight back home.
