It’s a 2hours long drive from Kigali to the Volcanoes National Park in Ruhengeri, Musanze province a home to the endangered Mountain gorillas. You will get to have a cup of coffee at one of the local restaurants around. At around 7.30 am, we will move to the park headquarters in Kinigi Village for a briefing by the Park ranger about the rules and regulations for Gorilla tracking before you head off to the jungle. The trek in Volcanoes National Park to search for the Gorillas can last from an hour to six hours depending on the gorilla movement, however for your case since you have just one day for your trek and travel, we will recommend the nearby family which is easy to trek though the trek is strenuous but much rewarding at the end. You will be given an hour with the gorilla on finding them and take as many pictures as possible. Later return to head park headquarters and drive back to Kigali City or to the airport for your flight with an enroute lunch along the way in ones of the local restaurants.
