DESCRIPTIVE ITINERARY

(subject to change)

Day 1: Kigali

Your driver/guide will meet you at Kigali International Airport in Kigali, Rwanda, and transport you to the Radisson Blu.

Overnight Radisson Blu.

 

Day 2: Kigali

After breakfast embark on a city tour, including local markets, and two museums dedicated to the Tutsi genocide of 1994. The Campaign Against Genocide museum, located within the parliament and The Kigali Genocide Memorial. These two work in tandem to effectively tell the story of the atrocities and the tireless work to end them. The CAG includes both a guided tour and the opportunity to see sections of parliament that were attacked during the genocide. The Kigali Genocide Memorial is the final resting place for more than 250,000 victims of the Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. It honours the memory of the more than one million Rwandans killed in 1994 through education and peace-building. Take some time to explore the city and enjoy lunch before your drive north to Volcanoes National Park.

Day 3: Chose Your Own Adventure

After breakfast you can embark on further adventures in the park. Costs vary and will be added on to your trip total. Activities need to be chosen at the time of booking to ensure permits are available. Available activities include Gorilla trekking, Golden Monkey trekking, Visit the tomb of Dian Fossey, Hike Mount Bisoke, Explore Musanze Cave, Explore Buhanga Eco-Park, or Take a Nature Walk.

After lunch at the hotel you set out for the twin lakes of Burera and Ruhondo. These are beautiful lakes located at the base of volcano Muhabura and close to the border with Uganda; are surrounded by steep hills and large waterfalls with a backdrop of the Virunga volcanic mountains. These twin lakes are great spots to be visited after watching the gorillas in the Rwandan mountains. Their deep blue waters ringed by steep hills and tall waterfalls with the outlines of the nearby Virunga Volcanoes provide a spectacular backdrop.

Lakes Burera and Ruhondo are separated by a 1km wide strip of land (thought to be an ancient lava flow from Sabyinyo). Scenery is breathtaking here as the shores of the lakes are heavily terraced and cultivated with crops and volcanoes loom ominously in the distance. You’ll end the night with dinner back at the lodge.
