Arrival and Kigali City Tour, Transfer to Bwindi
Upon arrival you will embark on a brief Kigali City tour. Kigali is reputed for being a very clean and orderly city. You will visit the the Genocide Memorial Center in Gisozi to see the hard historical facts about the massive killings that left over one million Tutsi and Hutu people dead within just 100 days.
Time permitting, you will visit other cultural sites in Kigali before embarking on the journey to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
Today you will encounter majestic Mountain Gorillas. You will be ushered to the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park headquarters by our driver/guide who will ensure you are allocated to an appropriate gorilla trekking group. Each group consists of 8 trekkers plus the ranger, park guard and trackers/porters. Gorilla Trekking can last you up to 6 hours and is a physically demanding exercise. After gorilla trekking, meet your driver who shall then transfer you back to your accommodation.
Lake Mutanda Canoeing, Batwa Community visit
Today you will be taken to Lake Mutanda where you will experience a privately guided canoe excursion lasting around 2 hours. You can choose to paddle the canoe yourselves or relax and enjoy the views as your canoe guide propels you through these beautiful waters dwarfed by the towering misty mountains. The scenery in this area is absolutely breath-taking and we recommend you have your lunch at the lakes, perhaps on one of the private islands with just the curious otters popping their heads up in the water occasionally or watching the birdlife and fisherman.
Visit to the Batwa / pygmies community who are the original forest dwellers so you can learn the history and customs of these hunter-gatherers.
Return to Kigali
After breakfast you will be transferred back to Kigali and dropped off at Kigali Airport or a city hotel
