This 5 day Rwanda primate adventure is an economy trip for those that would like to discover the beautiful land of a thousand hills on a budget. Safety measures have been taken into consideration and a Covid test factored. You will have the chance to come face to face with the mighty mountain gorillas and also experience the people and the city.
It’s the day of the arrival of your evening aircraft at the Kigali International Airport.
You’ll have a meet and greet assistance from Akagera Aviation. (A negative Covid 19 test result must be provided taken at least 72 hours before travel and another test will also be taken while on the ground.)
You’ll then transfer to your hotel in the city. On arrival, you’ll be assisted to check in. Dinner will follow in your room. You will be tested for Covid 19. Afterwards, you’ll have your overnight stay.
Enjoy breakfast at the hotel and spend the morning at leisure as you wait for your results. They should be out by 12:00 pm.
At 1:00 pm, our driver guide will pick you up and you will proceed on a guided city tour that will include the Kigali Genocide Memorial and the Inema Arts Gallery.

Volcanoes Park is the Rwandan section of the great volcanic massif called the Virunga Mountains that straddles the borders of Rwanda, Uganda and the DRC. The massif covers a huge area of over 8,000km², encompassing six active and three extinct volcanoes.
There is no other wildlife experience quite like an encounter with mountain gorillas. That precious hour spent in their company — watching the group playing, sulking, teasing each other, eating, or dozing just like we do — is extraordinary.
After this exciting experience, return to your hotel in time for lunch.
The afternoon will be spent at leisure to rest or if it is possible, visit the twin lakes of Ruhondo and Burera.
Later on, return to the lodge in the evening for dinner and your overnight stay.
