Set just below the equator on the western arm of Africa's Great Rift Valley, Rwanda is an intriguing land of volcanic mountains and dense equatorial jungles. Blessed with lush landscapes, rare wildlife and the resilient spirit of its people, Rwanda has risen above its dark history, offering travellers a safe and unparalleled wilderness experience.
With Rwanda's mountainous terrain earning it the title of "The Land of a Thousand Hills", the lush, mist-shrouded forests that cloak the country's volcanic peaks provide safe haven for rare mountain gorillas, golden monkeys and chimpanzees. This is, quite simply, one of the best places on Earth to meet some of mankind's closest relatives.
Enjoy an incredible once-in-a-lifetime wildlife encounter, trekking with expert local guides and trackers through the mist-shrouded forests and bamboo thickets of Volcanoes National Park in search of Rwanda's famous primates. The privilege of observing these gentle giants in their natural habitat is a bucket-list experience you'll never forget!
Search for lions and abundant birdlife in Akagera National Park, Rwanda's only protected savannah; spend a day at beautiful freshwater Lake Kivu, one of African's Great Lakes; and trek the stunning Bisoke Volcano, where you may be lucky enough to spot a silverback in the wild.
Finally, reflect upon Rwanda's tragic past at the moving Genocide Memorial; and support sustainable tourism initiatives with local handicrafts, cultural performances and village visits. Join us as we explore beautiful Rwanda!
