Day 1: Arrival and Transfer from Kigali to Kahuzi
Your journey starts as you arrive at the airport in Kigali. A friendly guide from Golden Rwanda Safari Experiences will be there to welcome you. From Kigali, you’ll travel to Bukavu, Congo, enjoying the scenic views of Rwanda’s rolling hills on the way. The trip takes you through different districts until you reach the Congo-Rwanda border at Bukavu. After handling border formalities, you’ll cross into Congo and stay for dinner and the night at Orchids Safari Club in Bukavu.
Day 2: Jane Goodall Lwiro Chimps Sanctuary
After an early breakfast, you’ll hop into a safari jeep for a visit to the Jane Goodall Lwiro Chimps sanctuary in Kahuzi-Biege. Here, you’ll learn about the sanctuary and its inhabitants. After the visit, it’s back to Orchids Safari Club for dinner and an overnight stay.
Day 3: First Gorilla Trekking
The highlight of your trip begins with the first gorilla trekking adventure. You get to spend an hour with the Eastern lowland gorillas, observing and capturing photos as they go about their wild activities. Once the experience is over, you head back to the park headquarters, where your driver awaits to take you back to Orchids Safari Club. Dinner and an overnight stay wrap up the day.
Day 4: Second Gorilla Trekking in Kahuzi Biega National Park
Another day, another chance to meet the Eastern lowland gorillas. This time, during the second gorilla trekking activity, you’ll again have an hour to watch and photograph these amazing creatures. Post-trekking, you return to the park headquarters and then back to Orchids Safari Club for dinner and a good night’s sleep.
Day 5: Bukavu Back to Kigali
As your adventure concludes, you’ll rise early, savor a cup of tea, and have breakfast. Then, you’ll embark on your safari jeep for the return journey to Kigali. If time permits, you may make stopovers at the Rwanda Ethnographic Museum and King Palace Museum in Nyanza before reaching Kigali.
And that concludes your memorable journey—no accommodation on this day as it marks the end of your tour.
