On this same day, you will go for a city tour where you will visit the Genocide memorial grounds, head to some craft shops where you can buy some souvenirs. On this city tour, your driver guide will give you information about the culture and history of Rwanda. If you came early enough, you will be taken for lunch and later you will be transferred to your hotel near to Volcanoes National park. This park is the home of these endangered species i.e. Mountain Gorillas. On arrival at the hotel, you will rest, freshen up and have dinner after which you will have an overnight stay at the lodge which could probably be Le Bambou Gorilla Lodge.
Day 2: Gorilla Trekking
On Day 2 of the 4 Days Gorilla Trekking & Dian Fossey Hike in Rwanda safari, wake up early and take breakfast prepared by professional chefs. After breakfast, the guide will pick you up and you head to the Kinigi Headquarters with your pack lunched from the hotel.
