The green slopes of the Virunga Volcanoes are a lofty and lush paradise. In the rainforests here–buzzing with the sounds of jungle life–the soft mists prevail as they did when Dian Fossey wrote her legendary book Gorillas in the Mist.

4 - DAY ITINERARY

Day - By - Day

Days 1 & 2 Kigali and Parc National des Volcans, Rwanda

Ask anyone that’s visited Rwanda’s highlands, and you’ll likely hear praise for a rare, captivating, and life-changing experience. Our carefully orchestrated visits begin in Kigali, Rwanda’s charming capital, which we’ll tour before heading northwest to the Virunga Volcanoes, a stately chain of jungle volcanoes that peak at Mount Karisimbi’s 14,787 feet, higher than any Rocky or Sierra Nevada. We’ll settle at Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge, a good base for our wanderings in these almost supernaturally verdant precincts.

The next day, led by our guide and his crew, we’ll begin making our way through a forest of trailing vines, bird calls, and mossy hagenia trees—a Jurassic, emerald world—walking toward an encounter with one of the park’s ten habituated families of mountain gorillas; no more than eight people are allowed to visit any given family for more than an hour each day. Seeing a 450-pound male only a few yards away is something you’ll want to tell your grandchildren’s children about.

Day 3 Parc National des Volcans

We’ll pay our respects to a different gorilla family today, noting the subtle cultural differences between clans.

Day 4 Depart Kigali

We’ll make the drive to Kigali for our homeward flights. (One final note: travelers who’d like to visit more of our primate relatives should ask us about easy-to-arrange side trips that put us in contact with chimpanzees and colobus monkeys.) This option is available on Bespoke safaris or our Classic Safaris.
