 Dian fossey safari trail  
  
 
You may have seen them all - the elephants, lions, giraffes, buffaloes and the rest. But have you seen the endangered mountain gorillas? If not this is a chance for you to spend time with these gentle giants in Parc National de Volcans in Rwanda made famous by Dian Fossey. It is a life changing experience!


Day 01ARRIVAL / PARC NATIONAL DES VOLCANSNo BreakfastNo LunchDinner
Virunga volcanos



Arrive at the Kigali airport, meet and greet, then a two-hour drive to Kiningi via Ruhengeri. The journey north goes through the beautiful terraced hillsides that characterize much of Rwanda's landscape, gradually climbing to the base of the awesome Virunga volcanos, sometimes with as many as five peaks visible. Dinner and overnight at the Gorilla nest lodge.

Day 02PARC NATIONAL DES VOLCANSBreakfastLunchDinner
This morning after an early morning breakfast you take a short drive to the Park Headquarters and meet with the local guides and trackers who will give a talk on the etiquette of gorilla trekking. Tracking Gorillas through the lush forested slopes of the Virungas is a magical experience. The trek can last from 1 to 6 hours. The terrain is rough and at times muddy. Although the hike is physically demanding, the beauty of the forest and the surrounding scenery make the trekking worthwhile.
Picnic lunches are provided and it is important to take plenty of water. Cameras and plenty of fast speed film is recommended. It can rain at a few minutes notice; hence waterproof clothing is a good essential including zip lock bags for cameras and film. (NB: We can not guarantee seeing gorillas)
