4 Days, 3 Nights

This safari includes one night in Kigali and 2 nights in Volcanoes National Park, the home of over 350 Mountain Gorillas.  The program operates in reverse.

After exploring the vibrant city of Kigali, including a visit to the historic and moving Genocide Memorial, travelers head to Volcanoes National Park for 3 days of primate viewing. Mountain Gorillas are the star of the primate show, but Golden Monkeys are stunningly beautiful and fun to watch. We recommend opting for both. While the trek to see gorillas can sometimes be long, Golden Monkeys often nest near the entrance to the Park, making for an easier day of walking.
