    The tour was good for seeing the gorillas at a relatively cheap price though I feel the other included days were a bit of a waste of time as there wasn't really much to do. I would have preferred the tour to have been cheaper and only 4 days maximum.... Show more

    Thank you for your comments Ciaran. We are sorry that you felt the Gorilla Stop was too long. We do always need an extra day in the itinerary on the trips up to the gorillas as we cannot always guarantee getting all the permits on the same day... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

    • What time does the tour end?

      This tour will end in Kigali around 2:00 pm on Day 5.

      There is a border crossing from Uganda to Rwanda on this day, so Absolute Africa recommends planning flights that depart from Kigali after 6:00 pm on this day, in case of any delays.

    • Does this tour include the Gorilla trekking permit?

      Yes. The gorilla trekking permit is included in this tour.

    • What is the group size of this tour?

      This tour will group around 16 people. The group is small enough to be able to follow the guide, ask questions and be heard, but large enough not to feel lonely as you will always have someone to have a chat with.

    • How does visa work?

      Unfortunately we are unable to give visa advice due to the vast number of nationalities which our customers represent. Some nationalities can travel freely over borders, where others require advance permission to enter. There are also changes in requirements from time to time. We recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.

    • How much will this tour really cost me?

      The costs to consider when travelling overland are:

      Safari price
      Optional excursions
      Personal spending money

      We are always very transparent about what a tour will cost and are happy to go through personal, tailored budgets to give you a very realistic idea of what you will spend on your tour - whether you are an adrenaline junkie, souvenir-shopaholic or travelling on a shoestring…
