On arrival, enjoy your breakfast and proceed to the park headquarters at Kinigi for the briefing by the park warden.  At 8:30 am the tour guide will transfer you to the starting point of the gorilla trek. The gorilla groups are allocated to the guests at random at the park headquarters. However, our experienced guides have over time built a strong relationship with the park wardens. They normally talk to them before time and express the clients’ interests in specific gorilla groups. They normally get a positive response over this. The trek may last from 1-8 hours depending on the movements of the gentle giants. On return, your driver will transfer you back to Kigali for drop off at your hotel.                   Meal Plan: Breakfast& Lunch & DinnerAccommodation: Lemigo Hotel, 2000 Hotel, Legend Hotel DAY 3: TRANSFER TO NYUNGWE NATIONAL PARK FOR CHIMPANZEE TREKKING Early morning at about 5.00 am, your driver guide will pick you up and transfer you to the Nyungwe National Park and after check in you will go for the briefing point at the Uwinka visitors center in Nyungwe forest before you can start your   trekking.
