Day 2 of 3 Days Congo Gorilla Safari from Rwanda: Gorilla trekking in Congo-Relax in the evening or visit the Senkokuwe Center
You will get up early for breakfast as the park authorities wait for you to pick you up at your hotel. The advantage of staying close to the Virunga National Park office is that you can get started on time with the gorilla detection briefing. There are eight regular groups of gorillas in the Congo. Gorilla kits are tailor-made for you, based on your fitness level, among other things. Listen to instructions from your guide and ranger while you are with the gorilla family.
Be calm and don’t make unnecessary noises or movements that could cause gorillas. After spending an hour with the gorilla, return to the starting point to meet your guide and return to the shelter for a break. Take a stroll in the evening or relax at the hotel, or visit the Gorilla Orphanage at Senkwekwe Center when you stay at Mikeno Lodge. Dinner and accommodation will be held at Mikeno Lodge (Luxury) or Kibun Batented Camp (Midrange).
Day 3: Return to Kigali for departure
Wake up at your leisure, have breakfast, and prepare for your return trip to Kigali. The park authorities will take you to a border crossing point where you will travel to Rwanda and meet the drivers of the Confidence Africa Tours.
