4 Days - Gorillas, Golden Monkeys and Kigali

This short but sweet tour allows you to experience the best of what Volcano's national park has to offer by tracking both the magnificent Mountain Gorillas and the playful and inquisitive Golden Monkeys, in the ultimate African mountainous jungle. On top of that you will take a Kigali city tour to learn about Rwanda's tragic past, and how the country has recovered.


Arrive in Kigali

You will be met by your guide at the airport, briefed about your upcoming safari then transferred to your 5* Hotel, which was the set for the 2004 Hollywood film "Hotel Rwanda", where you will enjoy one of their panoramic view rooms. There are plenty of great places to eat in Kigali and your guide can recommend somewhere for you upon your arrival. Read more

Hotel Des Mille Collines

Kigali City Tour and Volcano

After breakfast at your hotel, you will check out and go on a city tour, visiting the genocide memorial, which is a 'must-do' for any trip to Rwanda, where you will learn about the tragic history of this beautiful country. You will also get to see how the country has developed since, which with the help of international aid has been remarkable. After grabbing your lunch at one of the many restaurants you have to choose from, you will take the scenic drive north to Volcanoes NP to check in at your lodge at the base of the extinct volcano, Mount Karisimbi.

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

Gorilla Tracking

After an early breakfast you will set off on the unforgettable experience that is Mountain Gorilla tracking. After trekking through the dense forest to where the Gorillas were found the day before, you begin your tracking, searching for the largest primate in the world. Upon sighting them, you will stay with them for one hour as they eat, rest and bond with their young. To reach them it can take anywhere between 30 mins to 4 hours, so be prepared for a long trek through the humid rain-forest. Afterwards, you will spend the afternoon relaxing and taking in your beautiful surroundings. Read more

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

Golden Monkeys and Kigali

Golden Monkeys are rare and endemic to this region, living in the bamboo areas found at the base of the volcanoes themselves. Playful and inquisitive, these monkeys are a pleasure to watch. There are two troops you can track both numbering around 80. Once you have reached the Golden monkeys you will watch them for one hour as they go about their daily lives. In the afternoon you will transfer back to Kigali ready for you evening flight home. Read more

East African Discovery organised an excellent trip away for the 5 of us, they were able to sort everything we wanted for the duration of the holiday. We had a superb trip away and would recommend booking with them. Our trip was tailor made from the start, with communication over email being a stress-free experience. Hopefully we will use you again, to return to the excellent gorilla trek. Thanks East African Discovery. Read more

I would like to congratulate you for the very good trip you organized for the five of us. The driver, Herbert, was excellent, careful and full of attention, very punctual and always ready to satisfy us. He was always the first one to see the animals. We have been very lucky - leopard (2) - a female lion with 3 little ones - 6 sleepy lions - lions in the trees, gorillas after a walk of only 20 minutes, elephants, hippos etc.... The lodges were all excellent and full of charm; we enjoyed them very much. I shall not fail to recommend your company. Read more

We had a 6-day safari in Uganda arranged by Ben Tinsley at East African Discovery in late November 2016. It exceeded all expectations for value for money, accommodation, variety of scenery and sights, and quality of the driver/guide. We have travelled extensively including in other parts of East Africa. Uganda is truly special. We appreciated that the company is locally owned, with excellent local intelligence and experience in the tourism and game tracking fields in Uganda. We liked that the company is small, offering bespoke safaris rather than off-the-shelf itineraries. Ben responded to all queries and requests promptly during the planning stage and no question was too silly to ask. Our driver/guide was prompt, organised, informative, and friendly - he had grown up in a part of the country that we visited so his local knowledge was particularly good. The chimpanzee and gorilla tracking were experiences of a lifetime. Everything went off without a hitch. The pricing of EAD was considerably better than that offered for similar safaris by the larger outfits. We would recommend EAD without reservation. Read more
