Day 2 - Kinigi

This morning take a poignant and moving tour of the Genocide Memorial Centre, a permanent memorial for victims of the genocide of 1994. The Centre is built on a site where over 250,000 people are buried, and is a place where many people who lost loved ones in the genocide go to remember and grieve. Then enjoy a scenic drive to Kinigi at the base of Sabinyo Mountains, with excellent views of the Virunga Volcanoes Mountains, a World Heritage site and home to approximately 200 of the world's remaining 790 Mountain Gorillas.

Accommodations are your choice of three lodges: the deluxe Mountain Gorilla View Lodge, the luxurious Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge or the luxury eco-friendly Bisate Lodge. Mountain Gorilla View Lodge has an eco-tourist approach where Natural Conservation is a priority and the local community is empowered. Cottages are spacious with stoned rooms kept warm with a fire-place, and designed in contemporary African furniture.

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge affords wonderful views of the volcanoes.  Beautifully appointed cottages feature large sitting areas, fireplaces and stylish en-suite bathrooms. 

Bisate Lodge features six sumptuous en-suite rooms that maximize comfort, warmth and views while retaining environmental principles and reflecting the culture of surrounding rural Rwanda.
