Day 1: Arrival at Kigali Airport After arrival at the airport, we welcome you to Rwanda, the land of a thousand hills. Why the name? It is attributed to Rwanda’s relief and topography which is mountainous (steep mountains) with a dense equatorial forest. You will be transferred to Kigali by our safari guide. Take lunch and then leave for ParcNationale des Volcanoes. The journey to the north goes through the beautiful terraced hillsides that show much of Rwanda’s landscape, gradually climbing to the base of the awesome Virunga volcanoes; sometimes five peaks can be seen namely Sabyinyo, Karisimbi, Bisoke, Gahinga and Muhabura. Spend the night at Virunga Volcanoes Lodge / Gorilla Nest/ Kinigi Guest House. Day 2: Mountain Gorilla Tracking Wake up early morning and go for gorilla tracking. Tracking the gorillas through the light mountain forest on the slopes of the Virungas is a wonderful experience. Incase you are lucky; you can get to see the gorillas, spend an hour with them, and get back at the lodge in time for a late lunch but some gorilla families are more mysterious tracking can take a full day, especially when it is wet and muddy.

Interesting facts
The best trekking and climbing routs in Greece - Mount Olympus

Who of us, when reading the Greek myths, would not dream to see the mountain awing the ancient Greeks? Even these days Mytikas’s (Mount Olympus’s modern name) peak can be rarely seen as it is almost always hidden behind the dense clouds. Due to this reason, the ancient people believed Mount Olympus to be the place of residence of Gods, unreachable and invisible to human. Mytikas means "nose" and takes the name from its shape reminding of a human’s nose. Every proud-hearted Greek should at least once ascend the mountain; it is almost a duty, an unwritten rule, so to say, and numerous Greeks, sometimes in big groups, often ascend the mountains without wearing any special shoes or helmets.
