Day 1: Arrival, Kigali City Tour & Transfer to Ruhengeri
Your first day off the 2 days Rwanda gorilla tour starts upon arrival at the Kigali International Airport where you will be met by one of our tour guides waiting to transfer you to Kigali City for an exciting City Tour. Remarkable sites you will visit include the Kigali genocide memorial sites such as the Gisozi genocide memorial site which is very near to Kigali City, visit to the local craft arts market where you can even choose to buy some of the precious souvenirs and handmade products (that is why we recommend that you budget for the miscellaneous too).
