Kigali Return

Arrive today in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. After checking in to your hotel, relax this evening in preparation for tomorrow’s adventure.

Stay: Kigali Serena Hotel

After breakfast, take in the sights of Kigali on a city tour, where the country’s sobering history will be revealed. Your guide will take you to various landmark buildings around the capital, before allowing you time to visit the Genocide Museum. Learn how the Rwandan people have overcome and grown into a progressive and very proud nation. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (own account) before journeying out to your lodge, located in the foothills of the Virunga Mountains, a chain of volcanoes which reach more than 4,500 metres tall at their highest point. The lodge is a short drive from Volcanoes National Park with views to the Virunga Mountains and surrounding countryside. This is the start of your unforgettable mountain gorilla experience.
