Classic Rwanda - Private Tour

This tour showcases the best that Rwanda has to offer from National Parks and game viewing to cultural encounters. The tailor-made itinerary departs on Friday on the direct flight from Gatwick to Kigali. Accommodation can be chosen according to your preference, though many lodges are small and availability may be the deciding factor.

Day 1

Fly overnight from London Gatwick to Kigali

Day 2 

Transfer on arrival to your central Kigali hotel for an overnight stay. Take time to explore the city on a guided tour - a visit to the Genocide Museum is highly recommended.

Days 3-4

Journey south with your driver/guide to Huye, the country’s second city and intellectual heart for a visit to the National Museum. Continue to Nyungwe Forest National Park for a 2 night stay and the opportunity to trek chimpanzees in one of Africa’s oldest rainforests. 

Days 5-6

Drive to Lake Kivu and along the shores of the lake to Gisenyi for a 2 night stay. Relax and enjoy the lakeside resort with its sandy beaches and palm trees.

Days 7-8

It’s a relatively short drive to Volcanoes National Park, home of the Mountain Gorillas, where you will stay in a lodge just outside the park headquarters for 2 nights. Rise early the following morning for an unforgettable trek into the hills to observe a gorilla family, from the chief Silverback and black backs down to the newest arrivals, in their natural habitat.

Days 9-10

A full day driving through beautiful, mountainous scenery to Akagera National Park for 2 nights on safari. The park is home to many large plains game species such as elephant, buffalo, zebra and antelope and primates, including olive baboons and vervet monkeys.
