Enjoy two treks with expert guides to observe these 200 kilogram gentle giants which are strictly vegetarian. Visit local villages and track the beautiful Golden Monkey with its' beautiful orange and sky blue facial blaze!

Perched on a highland ridge, the picturesque Virunga Lodge looks upon twin lakes and the Virunga Mountains. This small eco-friendly and bush-chic lodge has eight comfortable rooms each with adjoining bathrooms, fresh food and genuine African warmth!

Day 4. Serena, Kigali

After a final morning activity, depart the Virunga Mountais for Kigali, the country's capital. The overland drive winds through rural villages and awe-inspiring scenery, an exciting excursion in itself. Overnight at the five star Kigali Serena Hotel, positioned amongst charming boulevards.

Main areas display the very best of Rwandese cultural art and rooms are typically pan-African in style and reflect the country's colourful dress style. A wide variety of vibrant local restaurants close by serve gastronomic African meals.

Recommended Extension: East Africa

With seamless connectivity to Nairobi, Tanzania and Kenya's annual wildebeest migration and a host of incredible experiences are a mere 4 hour flight away. Our knowledgeable team have travelled to East Africa extensively over the past three decades and would love to hand-craft a savanna wildlife extension to complement Congo's sublime primate experience.

Imagine a grassland of a gently rolling landscape covered in almost two million wildebeest on the move, with their ever present companions, the large herds of zebra, eland and of course attendant predators! This is East Africa's greatest spectacle and is just one of the phenomenal experiences on offer.
