Gorilla encounters in Rwanda

A true bucket-list destination and one of Africa’s ultimate highlights, the misty Gorilla Kingdom is steeped in mystery and allure. Arrive via the capital city of Kigali, where a Timeless Africa Safaris liaison is on hand for a personal welcome and to oversee transfer to Bisate Lodge. With dramatic views of nearby Volcanoes National Park, this breathtaking lodges forms an opulent base for 3 nights. Days are filled with tracking a habituated gorilla group through hauntingly beautiful rain forests. Getting up close to a great Silverback, his mates and cheeky offspring is humbling and awe-inspiring; as they play, eat, groom and go about their daily activities as normal. Highlights include a hike to Dian Fossey’s grave and observing endangered endemic golden monkeys. Another special experience is summiting a dormant volcano that provides 360-degree panoramas of the wondrous scenery. Visitors participate in a reforestation programme that leaves a lasting impact on local communities and conservation. The perfect combination of all-round inspiration and truly transformative wildlife encounters.
