Hiking and Gorillas for 3 Days in Bisoke

Mount Bisoke is the most popular mountain in the Volcanoes National Park. It is an easy climb and it takes only one day to reach the summit, unlike the more demanding Karisimbi. On this 3-day safari, you will get the chance to hike and climb while tracking Gorillas as well. In addition, you will also enjoy a city tour of Kigali.

ITINERARY
