Tracking gorillas twice is an amazing experience few have had- On this safari , a tourist will track down gorillas in two separate locations on the Virunga slopes over the course of 3 days.

Day 1: Arrival-  Transfer to Volcanoes national Park

Pick up from the airport on arrival, have lunch in Kigali, get on the road to Volcanoes national park for 3 hours.  Virunga National Park is in the magnificent Virunga Mountains, located in the Northern Province of Rwanda, on the border of Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. The Virunga Mountains consist of six Volcanoes which include Karisimbi, Bisoke and Mikeno Volcanoes, and are home to the famous gorilla families and various other animals. The vegetation in the park is mainly Bamboo and rainforest. Apart from Mountain Gorillas, other animals like golden monkeys, chimpanzees live in this place too. Do not miss out on Dianne Fossey visit if you have enough time. Dianne Fossey is the researcher who dedicated her life to the Gorillas. Relax the rest of the afternoon or do a community walk
