Day of the 4 Days Safari in Rwanda: Do gorilla trekking & Musanze Caves Walk 

4 Days Safari in Rwanda

After your breakfast, start your Rwanda gorilla tracking safari by driving to the headquarters for briefing by park officials at 8 am and after entering into the jungle to search for the shy mountain endangered gorillas in Rwanda. Requirements like firm walking shoes, hut, insect repellent, sunscreen, rain gears, packed lunch, and bottled water are a must plus other tools that one may need once in the tropical rain forest. The gorilla trekking experience in Volcanoes is beyond gorilla alone. The sights of the Volcanic Mountains that stretch from Congo through Rwanda to Uganda, the verdant green vegetation that shelters their slopes, the counts of birds along with fauna like duikers and buffaloes combine to generate lasting safari memories. The gorilla trekking activity tends to last from 2 to 8 hours or more depending on the day’s gorilla movement. The one hour of direct encounter with the gorillas brings you closer to these ancient apes, look into their eyes, the gigantic structure that makes the most powerful of all apes, and see them forage and play before retreating to the starting point and connect to the lodge for short relaxation. In the afternoon, you embark on the Musanze Caves walk to explore the historic caves of Musanze that were formed 65million years ago by the basalt lava flow from the Volcanic Mountains of Sabyinyo and Bisoke. The caves feature 31 entrances and stretch to 2km inside. The cave exploration lasts 2 hours walking underground but with the company of the soldier to offer you protection. The caves provided refugium to people in times of war in pre-colonial Rwanda and even in the 1994 Rwanda genocide. Retire for relaxation, dinner, and overnight.
