Itinerary Highlights

  • Volcanoes National Park - 4 Days
    Whilst it is a remarkable sight to witness any animal in their natural habitat, it is an utter privilege to get close to a gorilla in the Volcanoes National Park. The Virunga Mountains are home to this incredible species, as well as to a myriad of others, including the intriguing Golden Monkeys. Tucked between towering volcanoes, Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge offers striking views across the rugged landscape. Speak to hotel rangers brimming with impressive knowledge; their fascinating programmes are well worth a watch before heading out on an exhilarating trek. For those with a little time left over, visit the brilliant Dian Fossey memorial and research centre or discover the nearby Ruhondo and Bulera lakes by boat.

  • Nyungwe Forest National Park - 4 Days
    Set high above the jungle, Nyungwe Forest Lodge is a safari enthusiast's dream. With 13 different species of primate (including chimpanzees), and 275 types of bird in the region, the stunning sights from the luxurious Nyungwe Forest Lodge capture the imagination from the moment of arrival. The undulating volcanic and lush green scenery makes for pretty impressive spots to embark upon treks, where the game is on to glimpse these 200kg male silverbacks in their mighty surrounds.
