The park is a home to more than 360 mountain gorillas which is a third of the mountain gorillas remaining in the whole world. Dinner and overnight stay at Gorilla Nest Lodge or Mountains Gorilla View Lodge or Le Bambou Gorilla Lodge or Kinigi Guest House.

Day 2: Mountain Gorilla Trek in Volcanoes National Park
After breakfast, head to the park headquarters for a short briefing. After getting assigned to a particular gorilla family, you will set out in the forest to search for these rare mountain gorillas. You will go with packed water since gorilla trekking invloves hiking through the forest. Upon meeting the gorillas, you are allowed to stay with the gorillas for one hour which will be enough for you to take pictures and videos. After the one hour, you will return back to your lodge for lunch. Later transfer back to Kigali for either an overnight stay at your preferred hotel.
