Overnight at your previous Lodge on full board basis. Your guide will make the necessary arrangements for the next day.

On day three, after breakfast, you will report to the headquarters for your second Gorilla trek to a different gorilla group. If you love to hike and enjoy a great sense of achievement, we advise you to take one of the groups with a longer hiking distance. After the trekking, visit the Iby’wacu traditional village (a community based tourism project where the local community displays the traditional ways of living). On your way to Kigali, several stops will be made to admire the scenery.
