Day 2: Gorilla trekking
After breakfast, you will depart for the headquarters of the Park to get the necessary requirements. You will meet your ranger/guide(s) for a briefing about the greatest animal experience ever, then drive you to the slopes of one of the Virunga volcanoes for your trekking. After the trekking, you will enjoy lunch at Ruhengeri and an excursion to explore the beautiful lakes in the region (Lake Bulera & Ruhondo). Overnight at the lodge of your choice: Virunga Lodge or Mountain Gorilla Nest (BLD).
Day 3: Visit of the Golden Monkeys - Kinigi - Kigali
After breakfast, you will report to the headquarters for your excursion to the Golden Monkeys. Which is a very different experience from gorilla-viewing, the Monkeys react and interact differently; they will keep on playing hide-and-seek much to the delight of the visitor!
