STAY AT: Bukima Tented Camp
GETTING THERE: On arrival at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you will be met by your private guide and taken to check in for your scheduled flight to Kigali, Rwanda. On arrival in Rwanda, you will transfer via road to Virunga National Park, Congo. The journey takes approximately 5 hours.
EXPERIENCE: On arrival you will have time to relax and prepare for the day of trekking ahead whilst enjoying the stunning views from the camp. Bukima tented camp is one of the main starting points for Virunga mountain gorilla treks. The camp was originally built for researchers, but is now used primarily by trekkers. As the name suggests, overnight guests at Bukima sleep in platform tents, but by camping standards they are quite plush. Each tent is equipped with a nicely appointed bed and dresser for clothes. The views from the tent sites and communal areas are spectacular.
