Rwanda's Gorilla and Lakes Tour

8 days from US$1790 per person.

For most visitors to PNV in Rwanda one of the very main reasons they travel to Rwanda is to  trek the famous mountain gorillas. There is however so much more to see in Volcanoes National Park, including tracking the golden monkeys, having an excursion of the Musanze caves, hiking the Bisoke or Karismbi volcano, visiting the twin lakes of Bulera and Ruhondo etc.

While gorilla trekking is an awesome once in a lifetime experience, there is plenty more one can do when on a tour vacation of Rwanda. We suggest that you combine a Rwanda gorilla vacation, gorilla trekking tour package with a beach holiday on the beaches of Lake Kivu in either Gisenyi and/or on the shores of Lake Kivu in Kibuye, from where you can continue to Nyungwe for chimp tracking, colobus monkey trekking, canopy walks, forest walks etc. Your vacation would then proceed through Butare for a cultural experience of Rwanda and finally to Kigali where you  do a Kigali city tour and visit the genocide museum memorial at Gisozi.
