The Volcanoes National Park lies in north-western Rwanda and borders Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda. The national park is known as a haven for the mountain gorilla.

The park was the base for the zoologist Dian Fossey.

Day 4: Volcanoes National Park/Gorilla Trek
Early breakfast at your lodge/hotel/guest house. 0630hrs: You driver-guide will transfer you to the Volcanoes National Park Headquarters, for registration of your gorilla trekking experience.
Registration – this is a simple process, involving verification of the trekkers booked for the day, by scrutinizing the permits presented and passport details – which also provides statistical information per nationality. The park staff also determine and allocate the trekking participants to respective gorilla family to visit - based on a certain criteria, such as participant age, fitness level, repeat visit, or overall number of participants for the day. They advise of the trekking times and conditions to the various groups based upon their location in the park the previous evening. There are currently a total of 80 gorilla permits available each day with a maximum of eight trekkers visiting any one group.
Once the trekkers are grouped, each group’s lead-guide/tracker briefs his group’s members of the Gorilla trekking procedures - as well as the “do’s” and “don’ts”, while in the presence of Gorillas. After the briefing, trekkers return to their respective vehicles for the drive up to the starting point of Gorilla trekking safari - “parking”, or road-head.
Your trek starts in the cultivated foothills of the Virunga’s offering stirring views in all directions.
When it enters the national park, trekkers will be immersed in the mysterious intimacy of the rainforest, alive with the colorful bird calls, chattering golden monkeys, littered with fresh spoor of the mountains’ elusive buffalo and elephant.
Through gaps in the canopy, the magnificent peaks are glimpsed -  among the highest in Africa, yet easily accessible, beckon an ascent.
Weaving through overhanging vines, moss-covered hagenia trees and giant lobelias that thrive in the tropical climate, the experienced trackers - who have spent their entire lives in or close to this forest, soon brings  you  up close with one of the gorilla families.
Trekking can take from two to six or more hours, if the gorillas move before the park rangers can locate them the next morning.
The guides stop frequently to allow trekkers to catch-up, rest and take photos along the way. Upon sighting the gorillas, you will stay with them for a magical one hour,  as they go about their daily life - feeding, playing, resting and  raising and protecting their young.
Coming face to face with a giant silverback is certainly  one of the greatest wildlife experiences on earth!
At the end of the trek, rejoin your driver-guide and drive back to your lodge/hotel for freshening-up and lunch. Later in the afternoon, and after a brief siesta, re-join your driver-guide for a visit of the nearby Twin Lakes of Burera and Ruhondo.
Burera and Ruhondo are two beautiful lakes located at the base of the volcano Muhabura, and close to the border with Uganda. They are surrounded by steep hills and large waterfalls with a backdrop of the Virunga volcanic mountains. The twin lakes are close to the gorilla-tracking centre of Ruhengeri and used to be  referred to as neglected gems. Things have changed and the twin lakes are now popular with tourists. Their deep blue waters ringed by steep hills and tall waterfalls with the outlines of the nearby Virunga Volcanoes provide a spectacular backdrop. The lakes are separated by a 1km wide strip of land – thought to be an ancient lava flow from Mount Sabyinyo. The scenery is breathtaking here, as the shores of the lake are heavily terraced and cultivated with crops, and the volcanoes loom ominously in the distance. Return to your hotel/lodge/guest house in the early evening for dinner and overnight. Overnight on Full-Board basis: Mountain Gorilla View.
Day 5: Volcanoes National Park/Kigali/Depart
Early breakfast at your hotel/lodge/guest house. 0630hrs: After breakfast, your driver-guide will transfer you to the park headquarters for registration of your Golden Monkey trek. Trekking to see the Golden Monkeys is another highlight of Volcanoes National Park.

The monkeys are playful and inquisitive and often spend their time leaping from bamboo branches or frolicking on the forest floor.
