This safari will take you to the vir­gin lands of the Demo­c­ra­t­ic Repub­lic of Con­go and it will start from Kigali and end from Kigali. You will trek the low­land goril­las in Kahuzi Bie­ga nation­al park in Con­go. Low­land goril­las are larg­er than moun­tain goril­las in appear­ance and they are only 4 habit­u­at­ed goril­la fam­i­lies in Kahuzi-Bie­ga Nation­al Park open for tourists to trek.

Detailed Itin­er­ary.

Day 1: Arrive in Kigali and head to Bukavu in Congo.

Upon land­ing at Kigali Inter­na­tion­al air­port in Rwan­da, your assigned com­pa­ny dri­ver guide will pick you up and take you through a short brief­ing about how you are going to spend your 3 days in Kahuzi-Bie­ga low­land goril­las in Congo.

Start your dri­ve to Con­go south­wards to Kamem­be city and cross the bor­der of Cyan­gugu. On your dri­ve, you will be pass­ing through the Nyung­we for­est enjoy­ing watch­ing the pri­mates and the rolling hills of Rwan­da. Arrive in Con­go check in at the hotel and don’t mind about the secu­ri­ty because it is now very good.

Day 2: Low­land goril­la trekking.

Low­land goril­la trekking in Kahuzi Bie­ga Nation­al Park starts with break­fast in the morn­ing then trans­fer to the park offices for clear­ance and then after you will be briefed then head to the for­est to look for these endan­gered low­land goril­las. The search for these low­land goril­las does­n’t take long hours like that of moun­tain goril­la trekking because they don’t move so high in the mountain.

Once you find the low­land goril­las, you will not be allowed to spend more than one hour in their pres­ence because they are endan­gered and can eas­i­ly be infect­ed with infec­tious dis­eases.  After your one-hour expe­ri­ence moves back to the lodge.

Day 3: Trans­fer back to Kigali and fly back.

Wake up in the morn­ing for break­fast then check out from the hotel and dri­ve back to Kigali Inter­na­tion­al air­port enjoy­ing the beau­ti­ful scenery along the way. Option­al city tour around Kigali then fly back to your home country.
