What's included in this trip
Mountain Gorillas of Rwanda SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Rwanda's capital, Kigali, is a great place to explore on foot - from its market areas to the infamous Hotel Rwanda.
The small Rwandan town of Ruhengeri is the gateway to Volcanoes National Park, one of the last remaining sanctuaries for the mountain gorilla.
Depending on choices made at time of booking, venture a visit to another gorilla family, head out to spot the country's rare golden monkeys or take a hike up to the grave of Dian Fossey and the remains of her old research station.
Embark on a city tour of Kigali. Visit the Genocide Museum, a moving testament to one of Africa's darkest chapters and an integral part of understanding this very special country. This Rwandan adventure finishes up with a departure transfer to the airport.
