Start your day with breakfast served buffet-style at the hotel beginning at 8:00 AM. Dig into a variety of fresh breads, pastries, and hot and cold dishes.

Leave your hotel at around 9:00 AM for a morning of discovery in the Rwandan capital of Kigali. Learn about the city's past and present.

Visit the Genocide Memorial, which remembers the mass slaughter of a million Tutsi, Twa, and moderate Hutu in 1994.

At around noon, take an hour-long break for lunch at a local restaurant. Then, after lunch, set off for Bwindi National Park on a 3-hour journey. You will stop briefly at the border to Uganda to clear with customs and then continue your trip.

Arrive at the lodge and have time to settle in before dinner. Freshen up in your room with a private bathroom. Make use of the amenities including a restaurant and bar. Have dinner at around 7:00 PM in the lodge's restaurant.

Depending on the lodge that is available, you will likely be just minutes away from the main gate of Bwindi National Park.

Have a buffet-style breakfast from 6:00 AM. Then, at 7:30 AM, take a drive of about 30 minutes to the National Park headquarters to meet your guides for the day.

After completing the park formalities, embark on a once-in-a-lifetime experience of tracking mountain gorillas. Learn how the park is home to over a third of the remaining 1,000 Mountain Gorillas in the world.

Walk for two to four hours through thick bush and over steep, rugged terrain at elevations ranging from 7,000 to 9,000 feet. Once you spot the gorillas, spend up to an hour watching these incredible creatures from close by.

Depending on the length of our trek, you will return to the lodge by about 1:00 PM and have lunch at 1:30 PM.
