Day 1 : Arrival
Arrival at Kigali Airport where you will be welcomed. Have lunch and transfer to Parc National des Volcans. Dinner and overnight at La Palme Hotel.

Day 2 : Gorilla tracking
Full day dedicated to gorilla tracking, as it's unpredictable how many hours it may take to reach a group of gorillas. It's advisable to carry packed lunch, which can be arranged with your hotel the night before. For conservation purposes, time spent with the gorillas is only one hour and it is advisable to carry only non-flash cameras. After seeing the gorillas, return to La Palme Hotel for relaxation, dinner and overnight.

Day 3 : Parc National des Volcans – Akagera National Park
Drive to Akagera National Park for an afternoon or evening game drive, where you may see many night birds and animals. After this, check in for dinner and overnight at Akagera Guesthouse.

Day 4 : Akagera – Nyungwe Forest National Park
After an early breakfast you go for a morning game drive for a close encounter with animals such as zebras, several antelope species and giraffes. Later drive out of the park, stopping for lunch at Kigali town and continuing to Nyungwe Forest. This forest boasts many primate species like the wild chimpanzees, red-tailed monkeys, black and white colobus monkeys and many others. Therefore a night walk this evening in search of the shy forest dwellers is rewarding and worthwhile. Dinner and overnight at Nyungwe Guesthouse.

Day 5 : Nyungwe Forest National Park
After breakfast there will be a primate walk in search of the primates mentioned above. This is a whole day activity accompanied by park rangers and trained guides. Dinner and overnight at Nyungwe Guesthouse.

Day 6 : Departure
Depending on your flight time, have an early morning breakfast before leaving for Kigali airport. If departure is later, one can visit the craft villages and shop around at other places with the help of the driver/ guide. Leave for the airport in plenty of time for your flight.

About Our Reviews

Our reviews are Fully Qualified

We do not take reviews from unqualified sources

Since 1996 we have been working with the best tour operators in Africa. Our unique relationship with those operators ensures only people who have participated in a trip after making an enquiry for it at AfricaGuide.com can leave a review.

The email we send you when you make an enquiry has full instructions for registering a booking and leaving a review - both are free services.

Feel free to read through the reviews for any trip you like the look of.

Trips with no reviews are usually new to AfricaGuide.com but are normally operated by a tour operator who is established here and has gained operator reviews for you to read.

About our trip providers and reviews

Our Trip Providers

We carry out extensive company checks on all our providers, over 20 years we have built strong personal relationships with each of them, which assures you of an unparalleled service, great value and the trip of a lifetime.
We have participated in many of the trips found here (we have a nice job) and make our own independent assessments of the services provided, ensuring they meet with our own high standards.

All the trips are supplied by the end provider of that trip.
You may find the same or similar trips elsewhere, usually these are offered by an agent.
We prefer to give you direct access to the trip provider for reasons outlined below:

  1. Best price.
    The price you see here is the direct trip price set by the provider, the same price as purchasing directly with them (which is how it works), there are no added commissions.
    This means you are not paying an agents commission and the provider is receiving their fully budgeted trip cost.
    (agents can demand discounts from providers as well as adding commissions to the providers trip price)
  2. Easy customisation.
    By booking directly with the end provider, making changes is quick and easy.
  3. Fast problem solving.
    On the rare occasion that an issue may arise before or during your trip, by dealing directly with the end provider, problem solving is quick and efficient.
  4. Helping Africa help itself.
    The most straightforward way to assist the economic opportunities and conditions for local people across Africa, is by direct financial interaction with people in Africa. In a nutshell "Tourism".
    This kind of direct tourism gives opportunity to local people.

We limit the number of providers we work with in order to strike a balance between a good choice of trips and to be sure we can honestly recommend the service and validity of each provider.
Because the majority of trips can be customised by the providers, the choice of trip configurations is in the tens of thousands.

Our Reviews

We have 3,000+ reviews for our trips and providers.
All our reviews are fully qualified, we do not take unqualified reviews.
We show all reviews, the good and the critical (very few). Our providers have the ability to respond to reviews and those responses are shown alongside the review.
Acquiring genuine reviews is actually very hard, for our genuine travellers we make this an easy process but many people although satisfied with the service they received do not leave a review.

Many reviews on the internet can be left by an open process with little or no checks.
At best unqualified reviews are worthless, at worst they are misleading. We never take unqualified reviews.

We hope you find a trip to your liking and we are here to assist.

Wishing you happy travels...
