Below is the detailed itinerary.

Day 1: Transfer from Kigali to Kisoro boarder town in Uganda

Day 2: Congo Gorilla tracking in Virunga National Park.
Transfer to the Bunagana boarder with Congo, then  from there drive to the Park Headquarters to be briefed about gorilla tracking dos and don’ts  before setting off into the forest to track gorillas in Parc National des Virunga of Congo for the incredible experience.  In the course of searching for the Mountain Gorillas, you will be exposed to excellent birding and primates such as the Golden Monkeys, Blue Monkeys, Black and White colobus monkey, and giant forest hogs among others. You will stay with these beautiful primates for one hour for observation and photography. Gorilla tracking through the forest, hills and swamps can be tough, arduous and tiring, sometimes taking up to 8 hours in the forest.
