Detailed Itinerary for 3 Days Kahuzi Biega National Park Gorilla Safari.

Day 1: Pick-up and cross to Bukavu

Depending on where you are in Kigali, our business representative-guide/driver will pick you up and take you for roughly 7 hours via Nyungwe National Park with lovely rolling hills in Rusizi, with stops for lunch and refreshment. Cross the border from Cyangugu to Bukavu in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. When you arrive in Bukavu, the closest town to Kahuzi Biega, proceed to your lodge for supper and an overnight stay at Hotel Linda.

Day 2: Lowland gorilla trekking – Cyangungu

After breakfast at the resort, drive for around 45 minutes to the park headquarters for a briefing on the Eastern lowland gorillas. You will then begin your amazing adventure with lowland gorillas in the valleys of Kahuzi, where you will see many animals, birds, and primates. It’s generally a 1-6 hour jungle experience, depending on their mobility as you snap images and videos of them interacting/playing with each other.

You will then descend and meet your driver to return to your hotel for dinner and sleep at Hotel Linda, like you did the night before.

Day 3: Transfer back to Kigali

Breakfast first thing in the morning, then return to Kigali. It’s a 7-hour journey to Kigali, with stops at the King’s Palace in Nyanza and the Butare National Museum along way. After lunch, connect to Kigali airport for your onward flight. End of 3 days Kahuzi Biega.

It is important to note that your Rwanda visa expires the moment you enter into Congo, therefore you will need to renew for one when at the border and find it ready after the trip.
