3 Days 2 Nights Rwanda Gorilla Trekking Volcanoes Lake Kivu Safari from the 3 Days Rwanda Safari begins and ends in in Kigali Rwanda's capital city. The tour includes a visit to Volcanoes National Park – best known for mountain gorilla trekking.

More than than half of the world's last mountain gorillas live here – about 350 of them – and at present it's probably the best place in Africa for a mountain gorilla safari.

Volcanoes National Park is located about 80 km from Kigali and takes about 2 Hours 20 minutes by road. The tour also includes a visit to Lake Kivu – Rwanda’s largest lake, and the sixth largest lake in Africa.

Lake Kivu has three main towns; Gisenyi (Rubavu), Kibuye (Karongi) and Cyangugu (Rusizi).  Gisenyi (Rubavu) is the largest city on the shores of Lake Kivu located 56 km, about an hour’s drive from Volcanoes National Park.
