- Short Breaks - Independent Adventures, Wildlife
Day 1 Kigali
Welcome to Rwanda – a country of haunting history and astounding natural beauty. Set off through lush hillside to Parc National des Volcans for a night in an eco lodge on the slopes of a volcano.
ACCOM: Lodge - 1
Day 2 Ruhengeri/Gorilla Trek
Scramble through the thick undergrowth of the Virunga Mountains in search of the world's largest apes, Rwanda's mountain gorillas. Local guides will already have located the family we'll be visiting, but the trek there can still be tough – and muddy – work. This is all part of the experience however, and the time spent in the company of these majestic creatures will more than make up for the hard slog.
ACCOM: Lodge - 1
Day 3 Optional Trek/Kigali
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.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1
Day 4 Kigali
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.
