Or could be flying in direct landing at Kigali international airport. Flying to Kigali and driving is a lot cheaper because the journey from the airport to the park is only 2 hours drive compared to 10 hours drive from Entebbe to Musanze.  From Kigali airport, you drive through the capital city and you get to visit a number of sites.  The sites that you can visit on your way to Volcanoes National Park includes; the national museum, the genocide memorial centre, and many more.

Such that you can have an aerial view of the Hills of Rwanda. The flight is just one hour with Helicopter and the Helicopter Lands in the compound of Virunga Volcanoes Lodge.
