2 Days Mount Bisoke Hike

Interested in hiking Bisoke Mountain in Rwanda? Mount Bisoke, also referred to as Mount Visoke is one of the eight Virunga Volcano Mountains, a chain of mountains found in the Virunga Conservation Area of East Africa. This 2 days Mount Bisoke hiking safari is a great package for hiking this mountain that has a beautiful crater on top.

This 2 days Mount Bisoke hiking tour begins and ends in Kigali. The hike on Mount Bisoke is not so hard and is preferred by many travelers mainly because of this. Please see detailed itinerary of this 2 days Mount Bisoke hiking adventure below.

Day 1: Transter to Volcanoes National Park in Musanze

This day you transfer from Kigali to Volcanoes National park in Musanze. This is the only park where gorilla trekking in Rwanda is carried out from, so chances of you seeing gorillas on your way up to the Bisoke Crater is so high so you won’t be allowed to spend time around the primates.

In case you get lucky and see gorillas in the wild, you will just proceed with your hike. The transfer from Kigali to Volcanoes National park takes approximately two hours. Depending on what time you depart Kigali, lunch will be served at your hotel if you arrive early enough.

Day 2: Hike Mount Bisoke & Departure

After an early morning breakfast meal, your tour guide will then drive you to the park headquarters for your morning briefing session. This briefing starts at exactly 7:00am hence, you have to be there at least 30 minutes prior. The starting point for Munt Bisoke hiking adventures is from the Rwanda Development Board offices in Kinigi.

At the office, you will find several other people lined up for several activities. After briefing, your tour guide will drive you to the exact starting point of the trek, which is about 25 minutes away. From here you will join a group of hikers and commence your trek.

Hiking Bisoke is an all-day experience and takes about 6 hours in total to ascend and descend the mountain. On top of the mountain is a beautiful crater. After descending the mountain, you will meet up with your guide and transfer to Kigali to mark the end of your 2 days Mount Bisoke hike.
