5 Days Gorilla and Golden Monkey Safari
Day 1: Kigali Airport – Volcanoes National Park
On arrival at Kigali Airport, you will be welcomed by our professional safari guide/ driver – He will brief you shortly and then drive to Volcanoes National Park. Dinner and overnight at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge, Le Bambou Gorilla Lodge, or Muhabura Hotel.
Day 2: Golden Monkey Trekking
Golden monkeys trekking is the second-best option after Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park. Golden Monkey trekking starts with a briefing and then walk in groups to encounter them in their natural habitat. Golden Monkey trekking is not as strenuous as Gorilla trekking so, expect to come back a bit earlier. Dinner and overnight at your previous accommodation.
Day 3: Cross to Southwestern Uganda – Proceed to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
After breakfast, drive to Bwindi Impenetrable National Park via the Kyanika border. Continue to the Kabale district which was nicknamed the “Switzerland of Africa”. You will reach the park at lunchtime and relax as you wait for dinner and overnight at Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge, Gorilla Mist Camp, or Rushaga Gorilla camp.
Day 4: Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
After breakfast, you will report to the park headquarters for briefing. Meet other guests, be briefed, and then move to meet Mountain Gorillas in their natural environment. Gorilla trekking duration depends on the movement of gorillas in their natural habitat but sometimes takes 3-6 hours. Meet Gorilla families and then return to your respective accommodation for lunch and relax as you wait for dinner and overnight.
Day 5: Return to Kigali Airport – Evening departure
Drive from Bwindi to Kigali Airport after breakfast.
