VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK

Begin in the cosmopolitan capital of Kigali where you’ll transfer to a helicopter and fly to Volcanoes National Park. Take in the majesty of the Virunga volcano range from above before arriving at your remote luxury accommodation. Relax that evening, relishing the vibrant plant and animal life that surrounds you.

In the company of conservationist and expert rangers, you’ll commence your epic gorilla tracking experience picking through the jungle, surrounded by the colorful Rwandan birdlife. Once you find these rare primates, you’ll have a profound private encounter with these impressive animals.

GOLDEN MONKEYS & NYUNGWE

Journey deeper into this high altitude jungle while learning about what initiatives are in place to protect primates here. Go in search of endemic golden monkeys, tracking them by the trail of freshly gnawed bamboo they leave behind. Observe this engaging species as they leap between branches, socialize and graze.

On a visit to the tomb of Dian Fossey, lean about her ground-breaking conservation work with the mountain gorillas. See the imposing Mount Bioke volcano while you trek through the forest on the look out for forest hogs and listening for the sound of elephants pushing their way through the foliage.

Journey south to Nyungwe National Park—one of Africa’s oldest rainforests. Enter amid its towering ebonies, ancient mahoganies, and giant tree ferns at night for a guided chimpanzee trek, moving with them as they swing through the canopy.

In this biodiversity hot spot, you’ll see a huge variety of colorful insect life, birdlife, and primates as you explore. See the Isumo waterfall and explore deeper while traversing the canopy walk suspension bridge.
