A lot can happen in less then a week and this compact but impactful itinerary idea proves that. If you have always dreamt of sitting among mountain gorillas, watching golden monkey families and exploring some of Africa’s greatest strongholds of unusual primates like mangabeys, L’Hoest’s monkey, chimpanzees and fluffy colobuses, then this journey is perfect for you.
Starting in Kigali, you stay in one of Volcanoes National Park’s top lodges for gorilla and golden monkey trekking. The time you spend with them is made even more special because it is so short – be sure to put down your camera or phone and just take it all in. Then, another fabulous lodge beckons; this time in glorious Nyungwe Forest National Park.
