Parc National des des Volcans, Rwanda
The magnificent Virunga Mountains consist of six spectacular volcanoes,situated on the borders of Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Parc National Des Volcans is a perfect destination for wildlife and adventure – it is home to the famous Mountain Gorillas, as well as being an excellent location for birding. Caving, hiking and cycling areamongst the other activities available.
Cross off one of life’s ultimate bucket list experiences as you head into the misty Virunga Mountains in search of the majestic Mountain Gorilla. Trekking can take a full day through the volcanic forests, but the hour with the gorillas is worth every step
Day One:Arrive at Entebbe
You will be transported the short distance to the Boma Entebbe, a small boutique hotel just five minutes from the Airport. The Boma sits in green gardens and is actually a very good place for birding, with most of the local guides I know in Kampala recommending a stay here for their birding clients.
You will be staying for one night on a bed and breakfast basis and I recommend walking down to the lake in the evening for dinner at one of the beach front restaurants.
