Hello all. Back with another couple of questions.
I will be doing a golden monkey and 2 gorilla treks, spending 3 nights at the Gorilla Mountain View Lodge. Should any of the treks be over by mid-day, I would like to take side trips to (1) Lake Burera and Rugezi Birding Site and/or (2) Lake Kivu. The distance to Lake Kivu looks longer, but the roads to that tourist destination may be better than those further inland. I will have a driver throughout my stay in Rwanda. I know he'll have views on the matter, and that I'll be dependent on him. Has anyone done either of these side trips in a half day and, if I had to choose one, which should it be? Any input would be appreciated. Or if there are other half-day doable side trips, I'd love to know about them.
Second question is about night-time temperature for sleeping in 3rd week in September. I'll be traveling from Tanzania, wghere severe weight restrictions limit the amount of gear I can take with me. Is light nightwear going to be sufficient, given I have a fleecy jacket? Have I read about fires in the rooms and hot water bottles?
Thanks as always for any help.
