The Kigali Genocide Memorial is the starting point of this journey, which continues to Nyungwe Forest National Park for chimpanzee trekking and a canopy walk. You’ll also go to the well-known Volcanoes National Park to see the lake and walk at Bisoke. Go on a road journey to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in south-western Uganda to search for mountain gorillas. After a gorilla trek, your guide will take you to Lake Mburo National Park, a zebra haven.

Day 1: Arrive in Kigali and Visit the Genocide Memorial and Transfer to Nyungwe Forest National Park

Day 2: Transfer to Nyungwe Forest and Afternoon Canopy Walk

You will be transported to Nyungwe Forest National Park after breakfast at 6:00 am. On your route to the park, stop by Nyanza’s historic palace. You’ll take an afternoon canopy walk. The 90-meter-long canopy walkway in the Nyungwe Forest National Park in southwest Rwanda is 50 meters above the earth. The soaring platform is located above a deep, steep valley that winds through a vast forest. The largest walkway in East Africa is a 200m long structure with three towers. Nyungwe, which spans hundreds of square meters, is thought to be the oldest and largest afro-montane forest still present in East and Central Africa. It dates back to the last ice age.

Along with tracking Colobus monkeys, you’ll have an opportunity to see other forest residents like birds, reptiles, and butterflies. You may interact in the wild with man’s closest relatives by tracking chimpanzees. These monkeys’ antics as they play, hang from tree branches, compete for food, etc. will astound you.

Day 4: Mount Bisoke Hiking and Transfer to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park

You will eat breakfast on this day, then go to Kinigi, the briefing location, at 7:00 am with the hiking equipment and designated rangers. With a height of 3700 meters and the distinctive conic shape of a “perfect” volcano, Mount Bisoke has a deep crater lake inside of it. Although Mount Bisoke is not an especially difficult volcano to climb, it is nonetheless a difficult walk for those who are interested in doing so. Because of the high altitude, climbers must exert extra effort, and depending on how quickly they walk and how often they rest, the entire journey can last anything from five hours to an entire day. Usually, the ascent takes three hours. You will pass through several different vegetation environments while ascending, starting with bamboo woods, continuing through Hagenia-Hypericum forest, and concluding with Seneci-Lobelia bushes close to the summit. After there, you will descend and travel to western Uganda.

Main Destination: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (Gorillas)

Day 5: Gorilla Tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest-Transfer to Lake Mburo National Park

Start your hike with a picnic lunch after breakfast and a briefing from park ranger guides. Finding the mountain gorillas may take up to four hours or more of hiking up and down slick slopes through mist-covered foliage. You will thus need a packed lunch for this excursion. You will finally encounter one of the most sought-after animals, the mountain gorillas, thanks to this ongoing adventure. You will spend a full hour with them after you arrive, observing and learning about their behavior as you capture pictures.

After that, you’ll travel to Lake Mburo National Park, where you’ll spend the night close to the park.

Checkout of the hotel and transfer to Entebbe International Airport to readily catch your air transfer back home in the evening. We recommend that you book an evening flight as you say farewell to the pearl of Africa! But along the way, you will make a stopover at the Equator line to have an authentic feel of standing at Latitude 00.
