Upon your arrival at Kigali International Airport, you'll be greeted by a Virunga Programs driver-guide, marking the commencement of your day. Your journey kicks off with a complimentary city tour. Dr. Richard Kandt, the inaugural colonial resident governor of Rwanda, bestowed the name upon the city in 1907. Set amidst verdant hills, Kigali is affectionately referred to as the "Land of a Thousand Hills." Engage with captivating attractions, including the craft market, Gisozi Genocide Memorial Site, and Kigali Museum. Depart for a two-hour drive to the Musanze region, the second-largest town in Rwanda, set against the magnificent backdrop of five volcanic mountains known as The Virungas.
