Day 162: Spectacular ride, the volcanoes, and splashing out on an World Class experience!
A long and very interesting chat with Moses (Ugandan), before leaving Kigali. I was in two minds as to whether I should spend another day there.
Then went to the Genocide Memorial. Quiet sobering, 1994 Tutsi and the Hutu. The Kigali Genocide Memorial was opened on the 10th Anniversary of the Rwandan Genocide, in April 2004. The Centre is built on a site where over 250,000 people are buried.
Amazing ride from Kigali (1400m) to the Volcanoes. Winding road with lots of climbs and then downhills. Little traffic too…. Speed limit seemed 60k/h
Explored and then headed to the Park, just to see…. Found Gorilla Mountain View Lodge 1900m, coolish, hot water bottle….!
Luxury night for HF, slowly sucked in, including the gorillas, then saw my german ‘friends’ from the Chimpanzee experience!!
Went for a walk into the farming area, and then got bugged by the buy us a new football, guys… Bought the gorilla sketches. All friendly, potato farmers
Virunga Mountains 1st into view, then ride almost up to them… Mt Muhabura 4127m, Gahinga 4127, Volcano Sabyinyo (3674)
