Arrival:

Day 1: Culture Day

Driving: Kigali International Airport to Ruhija Gorilla Camp 5h

We leave just after midnight Dubai time, so we arrive very early into Kigali, 6:20 am. After clearing customs and purchasing visas (cash/credit card), we will meet our local guide. The morning will be spent driving through Rwanda, crossing into Uganda and reaching our final destination in Ruhija, Uganda. Lunch will be en route.

In the afternoon a Batwa guide will lead us through the forest, teaching us about the plants and their uses, showing us the homes they used to live in, how they hunted and survived in the forest. The Batwa were forest people who were evicted from their homes when Bwindi Impenetrable Forest was commissioned as a national park in 1991. Overnight/dinner Gorilla Safari Lodge or similar 3-star lodging

Day 2: Gorilla Tracking

Driving: Ruhija to Bwindi, Uganda 2 ½ hours

After a hearty breakfast, we will meet our Gorilla Tracking guide by 7:30am. The hike can be steep and the forest thick but your experienced guides and trackers will clear the path and lead you to one of the fantastic Gorilla families. Spend an hour watching these magnificent animals feeding and playing in their natural habitat.

Upon our return from gorilla trekking, we will load up the safari jeeps and drive to Lake Mutanda where we will relax in a local dugout canoe. Enjoy the beautiful lake, surrounded by mountains and volcanoes. Overnight/dinner in Bwindi Jungle Lodge or similar 3-star hotel

Day 3:  Golden Monkey Trekking; Transfer to Kigali Airport

Driving: Bwindi Jungle Lodge to Mgahinga (1h10m); Mgahinga to Kigali (4h30m)

This morning we will trek and observe the golden monkeys in the Mgahinga National Park. There are only three countries where you can see the endangered Golden Monkeys in the wild and there are only about 5000 remaining in the Virunga Volcano Chain. After lunch we will leave the Mgahinga and begin our journey to Kigali.  We will arrive at the Hotel des Mille Collines (known as the Hotel Rwanda) for an early dinner before heading to the airport. Dinner is not included in the price of the tour.
