About the Adventure
Want to be part of an #OnlyOnceInALifetime Adventure? Join us in RWANDA, when we hike to the top of the volcano to enjoy the views of the lakes and maybe meet even an adventurous gorilla.
Arrival at Kigali airport, transfer to our hotel where we have to wait for our PCR results to come in while we are taking a nap from the early morning flight. As soon as we receive results, let the RwandaFul Adventure begin.
We will go and visit the Twin Lakes, Burera and Ruhondo which once used to be one, but then were separated by volcanic eruption. We will have take a boat ride and visit the islands in the lake.
We set off to The Volcanoes NP, which is home to the Mountain Gorillas. Our day will start with the amazing view of Mount Bisoke where we will start our hiking adventure all the way to the top of the volcano to some breathtaking views. On our way to the top and its volcano lake we are passing through dense flora, some wildlife - maybe even a gorilla which path we accidently might cross. But we might have more chances to come along other forest wildife. The hiking will take up to 8 hours (return) and can be tiring as the soil is muddy and the vegetation dense. But reaching Bisoke Lake at 3,711 m with its views of the neighboring countries and all this scenic view, will reward us.
Back in Kigali we will visit the Genocide Memorial. And as sad as this place will make you feel, it is worth seeing and learning more abouth the Rwandan Genocide. We will then head to vibrant market where you get the chance to buy some hand crafted souvenirs to take back home. Do not forget to buy some coffee beans! Rwandan coffee is famous and delicious. After dinner, we will be heading to the Airport.
