Itinerary Overview

This incredible 8-day gorilla tracking safari takes you to three incredible national parks in Rwanda and Uganda - Parc National des Volcans in Rwanda, Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Bwindi National Park in Uganda.

    On arrival at Kigali International Airport a member of Australken team will be welcome you and transfer you to the City for Lunch. After Lunch you will drive to the Volcanoes Virunga Lodge in the Volcanoes National park.

Arrive at the Lodge in the late afternoon for Dinner followed by Overnight at The Volcanoes Virunga Lodge LDBB.

    Day 2: Volcanoes National Park

    Today you will have the rare opportunity to observe the famous Rwandan mountain gorillas (subject to gorilla permits being available).

If you are lucky you can get to the gorillas, spend an hour with them, and be back at the base in time for a late lunch. Some gorilla families, however, are more elusive, and tracking can take a full day, especially when it is wet and muddy.
