I ended up being the only person on the tour. Augustin fetched me in Muhanga and we made our way to Kibuye. Lake Kivu is incredibly beautiful. Our boat made a few extra stops on other islands which was very special. Lunch and the hotel setting was superb. I would do this day tour again tomorrow! Thank you Placide and Augustin 🌟

This 2-day tour is an absolute must! The experience is simply priceless! From Kigali, you will drive about 2 hours to Musanze where you will spend the night. Once you settle in your hotel in Musanze (including in the tour) you can have a walk and enjoy the views over the volcanoes which are the natural border between Rwanda, Uganda and DRC. Early morning the day after, you will drive about 15 minutes to the Volcanoes National Park where you will have hot/cold beverages available while you have your short safety briefing with other people coming for the tour. Then you have a short drive to the starting point and off you go for your trekk that should be around 2h with a few stops to take stunning pictures of the views. Once you arrive in the park, the guide will liaise with rangers who will tell them where the gorillas are so you can find them easily. Finally, the unique moment has arrived! you will spend 1h watching gorillas from a few feet away in their natural habitat! Simply mesmerizing! I can only recommend this tour! Just remember the Gorilla trekking permit is not included so the company will send you the link to the website to buy it (currently 1500USD). It is quite a lot but definitely worth it. The money is used to ensure the gorillas population increase and their habitat protected and extended. The gorillas used to be about 400 individuals 10 years ago and now almost 700 so you are helping a good cause :) Augustin, the guide who picked me up was amazing! Friendly and full of knowledge, he made me discover Kigali before taking the road to Musanze and stopped to allow me to take some amazing pictures. Easily reachable via phone/whatsapp and quick to respond, the whole experience was as smooth as possible!

Our Thousand Hills guide, Claude, was an exceptional good-will ambassador for all things Rwandan. From Kigali-based activities and shopping to advocating for the right level of hike to observe the gorillas he genuinely was responsible for our wonderful experiences. He shared his personal history of the genocide, patiently explained the country's politics, growth and economic development, he taught us about Rwandan culture (music and dance) and its people, even a few words of Kinyarwanda language, and local cuisine. We didn't expect Rwanda to be one of the best places of our Kenya-Tanzania-Rwanda experience, but it was. The gorilla viewing was exceptional and having a guide who helps ensure the experience is suited to your capabilities is essential.
