On arrival into Kigali enjoy a privately guided city tour with optional visit to the genocide memorial.  Longer city tours are available and we would be happy to discuss and plan your city sightseeing to suit your interests.

Your private driver guide will transfer you around 5 hrs to Bwindi National Park, crossing the border into Uganda where you stay for two nights.

On arrival at the lodge (time permitting), you will be taken on a guided walk through the community to a scenic viewpoint where you can see all six volcanoes on a clear day.   

Please note we recommend departure from Kigali early morning in order to allow sufficient time to transfer to the lodge and enjoy the views therefore it may be necessary to overnight in Kigali first depending on your flight arrival time.
