The Classic Volcanoes National Park Tour is a 4-day adventure that takes visitors to the heart of Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda.

After the briefing, you will set off on your gorilla trek, which is a challenging but rewarding experience. After your gorilla trek, you will have some time to relax and enjoy the scenery, such as taking a boat trip on Lake Bulera, going for a hike in the rainforest, or simply relaxing by the pool.

Day 1 : Kigali City – Volcanoes National Park
A Classic Volcanoes National Park tour to Rwanda is a fun and educational experience. The tour begins with a visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial, where you will learn about Rwanda's tragic history and pay respect to the victims of the genocide. After the memorial, you will enjoy a drive through the Kigali city, where you can freely associate with the natives and take photographs. The tour concludes with a transfer to Volcanoes National Park, where you will have the opportunity to go on a gorilla trek.
Day 2 : Golden Monkey Trekking & Twin Lakes
After an early breakfast, drive to the park offices for registration and a briefing. Then, the golden monkey trekking begins! During the journey, learn about the interesting life of these endangered species, often called the “Little Primates” of the Virungas, and enjoy seeing their playful nature as they forage for the freshest bamboo leaves.

When the trekking ends, return to the lodge for a delicious lunch. In the afternoon, drive to the picturesque twin lakes of Burera and Ruhondo. You can also discover local traditions by visiting a nearby cultural village. Dinner will be served during the overnight stay at your lodge.
Day 3 : Gorilla Trekking
A briefing at the Volcanoes National Park headquarters sets the stage for an unforgettable adventure: trekking the rare and critically endangered mountain gorillas. The fresh rainforest, colourful butterflies, and hypnotic bird songs are a feast for the senses.
When you reach the gorillas, savour the moment. Observe these magnificent creatures as they live, eat, play, and rest. Chilling with a silverback is one of the greatest wildlife experiences on earth. Try it! After the trekking, drive back to Kigali, refreshed and inspired by your encounter with these amazing animals.
