Commencing at 5 am in Remera on 23rd, the day begins with a warm welcome and a hearty breakfast, setting the tone for an unforgettable journey.
Participants will uncover Rwanda’s rich history with stops at the King’s palace and ethnographic museum in Nyanza and Huye.
The pinnacle of the adventure unfolds at Nyungwe National Park, renowned as one of Africa’s oldest rainforests. Boasting a quarter of Africa’s primates, including the common chimpanzee, and hosting around 300 bird species, the park serves as a sanctuary for nature enthusiasts.
Noteworthy conservation efforts in 2021 regenerated 1,277 hectares of indigenous forest, enhancing the park’s allure.
A standout experience awaits with the canopy walkway, an East African gem suspended 70 meters above the forest floor. Extending over 120 meters, it offers breathtaking views of the rainforest and mist-covered hills. Guided by experts, participants will have the chance to observe various bird species, primates, and other wildlife that call Nyungwe Forest home.
Following this exhilarating encounter, a moment of relaxation precedes the journey to Karongi, a tranquil beach retreat on the shores of Lake Kivu.
On December 24, the adventure continues with a leisurely breakfast, initiating a scenic journey to Rubavu, formerly Gisenyi. Traverse the picturesque landscapes of the Kivu belt, embracing the beauty of Lake Kivu, lush greenery, and the enchanting Gishwati Forest.
Gisenyi, a lakeside town, welcomes participants with its picturesque waterfront adorned with hotels and trendy bars, creating an ideal setting for sundowner cocktails. The day concludes with a boat excursion on Lake Kivu, surrounded by magnificent mountains and serene waters, offering a peaceful place to unwind.
Wrap up the day with lunch in Gisenyi, complemented by refreshing soft drinks. As the sun sets, relax during the drive back to Kigali, where the excursion concludes at Remera.
