Day 2: The Dian Fossey grave site (tomb) trail hike in Volcanoes National Park Rwanda

 

On second day you will be driven to headquarters by a tour guide for your next hike. The hike is done in the morning. You report to the park office in Kinigi at 7am to the meet the ranger guides for briefing and at about 8am drive for about 30 minutes to the base of the Mount Bisoke where the trekking starts just outside the park at the car parking. A walking stick will be provided at the starting point, free of charge, and porters will found here that you can hire to carry your bags and provide some support along the hike. 

The entire Dian Fossey tomb trek takes between 1 – 3 hours depending on your level of fitness. Proper hiking shoes are necessary as the paths is normally very muddy and slippery since it rains most of the times. Also much need is trousers and long-sleeved shirt to protect from stinging nettles and thorny plants.

The hike aims to give tourists a learning experience about the works of the famous American primatologist and conservationist, Dian Fossey, who dedicated her life to research about the mountain gorillas. She set up a research camp in the valley between Mt Karisimbi and Mt Bisoke hence the name ‘Karisoke. 

The difficulty of the hike can be placed at moderate level and doable by anyone with basic fitness. It is however challenging in wet conditions due to mud. The average altitude of the trail is 2900m to 3000m above sea level. Our safari guide will be waiting for you at the foot of the mount.  You will have lunch and then drive back to Kigali to your Hotel.
