This six-day itinerary introduces you to some of the most beautiful areas in Rwanda and allows you to be privy to one of the world's most profound wildlife encounters.
Start your adventure at a luxurious hotel set along one of Kigali's most charming boulevards. Kigali Serena Hotel's relaxed and welcoming atmosphere will provide a wonderful introduction to Rwanda, before you head out for a guided city tour of the capital city. Here, you'll visit the Kigali Genocide Memorial, a poignant place of remembrance and learning.
Next stop is Mountain Gorilla View Lodge, located in the foothills of one of the volcanic mountains that make up the Virunga Massif and a ten-minute drive to the main entrance of the Volcanoes National Park.
