Group 1: 5 day experience. - 2500 USD all inclusive.

Overview and Activities

The focus of our trip revolves around several issues

Day One – Arrive in Kigali, Rwanda

VIsit Genocide Memorial and Nyamata Church Memorial Site and Hotel Rwanda.

Day Two – Activity options:

Volcano, Diane Fossey Memorial, or Cultural Village Hike
Day Three – Golden Monkey Tracking, Transfer to Uganda
Day Four – This is not the usual Gorilla Tracking experience.  Most groups will simply arrive after the trackers have already found the gorillas.  Our group will actually track with the trackers. Wake up well before sunrise and start the day with the trackers.  You will learn how they locate the gorillas, the signs to look out for, and how fast they move.  SInce you arrive at the point where they last saw them the day before, they could be anywhere, so you need to be fit enough to stay up with the trackers! you are rewarded by being the ones to actuallly find the gorillas and inform the others that they are located and they should now be ready to join you.  After you return, you will freshen up and have your dinner "safari style" in the top of a mountain to watch the sunset. 
Day Five –  Explore the culture of Uganda villages: We will vIsit the local schools and learn about the various communicty  projects that we support in this area.  We will have a more relaxing day here with other optional activities available before we head back to Kigali.
