Itinerary

Day to day

On arrival at Kigali International Airport, you will be met and transferred to Virunga Lodge. Virunga Lodge stands as a sanctuary of tranquility and once-in-a-lifetime encounters. From the moment you arrive, the air becomes charged with anticipation, as the distant sounds of rustling leaves and echoing calls of wildlife whisper the promise of something truly extraordinary. As the sun sets over the misty hills, the lodge’s warm, rustic charm embraces you, offering a haven where luxury and nature harmoniously converge.

Awakening to the soft melodies of songbirds, you will embark on an unforgettable journey into the mystical world of gorillas. Led by expert guides, you traverse the emerald forests of Volcanoes National Park, each step a heartbeat closer to a heart-pounding encounter. Suddenly, there they are: the mighty mountain gorillas, gentle giants of the wild, lounging amidst the foliage. Eyes meet, and time stands still as a profound connection bridges the gap between species. The deep, contemplative gazes of these intelligent creatures mirror your own sense of wonder.

Yet, the primates’ symphony doesn’t end here. As you wander the lodge’s lush surroundings, mischievous monkeys swing from branches overhead, curiously observing their human visitors. Their playful antics bring infectious laughter and a sense of pure joy, reminding you of the interconnectedness of all life on this planet. At Virunga Lodge, nature’s spectacle unfolds with a tender intimacy.
