Then you set of for your trek which can last between 1-6 hours depending on the movements of the Gorillas up and down the mountains of Virunga.

Once you come across the group you are trekking you will be in awe as you witness these huge, shy animals socially interact, eat, play and sleep for a whole hour.  This is described by many as one of the planets greatest animal encounter experiences.

After the trek your driver/guide will transfer you to DR Congo/Rwanda border and assist you back to the Rwanda side and your awaiting driver/guide who will then transfer you to Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda.

DAY 3 - GOLDEN MONKEY TREK AND IBYIWACU CULTURAL VILLAGE

Early start this morning to get to the Golden Monkey trek starting point by 7am.

Here you will be briefed by the park rangers and guides before heading off to find these rare, playful and beautiful creatures.  You get to spend an hour watching them in the trees around you.  Rwanda is considered the best place in the world to trek Golden Monkeys due to the large troop of habituated monkeys in a fairly small area.

After the trek you will be transferred back to your lodge for lunch and a freshen up before going to the nearby Ibyiwacu Cultural Village to experience traditional Rwandan life and customs.

DAY 4 - TRANSFER TO KIGALI AND KIGALI CITY TOUR INCLUDING GENOCIDE MEMORIAL

After breakfast transfer back to Kigali via the beautiful scenery enroute.  Here you will discover why Rwanda is called the land of a thousand hills.

In Kigali you will be taken on a city tour including the highly memorable Kigali Genocide Memorial.  Emotionally challenging, transparent and educational you will leave with a range of feelings but surprisingly inspired by the incredible reconciliation and rebuilding that has occurred since this 1994 tragedy.

Finally you will be transferred to your connecting flight and we very much hope to see you again.
