Rwanda

The flow of time has witnessed a remarkable renaissance in Rwanda. This small, landlocked country in East Africa, which suffered appalling genocide in 1994, is now a peaceful, friendly  and prospering nation. It is also a country that packs a lot of natural punch into a small area (half the size of Scotland).

Known as the ‘Land of a Thousand Hills”, Rwanda is a lush, tropical gem of rolling hills peppered with tea plantations, rugged mountains, towering volcanoes and shimmering Lake Kivu, one of Africa’s great lakes. Within this extraordinary landscape is to be found a wonderful diversity of wildlife adventures, the most famous of which is the “Gorillas in the Mist”, the endangered mountain primates made famous by Dian Fossey.

Parc National des Volcans

The Volcanoes National Park is best known to the outside world as the place where Dian Fossey undertook her pioneering studies of mountain gorilla behaviour .

To be able to track the mountain gorillas in the Virunga Mountains is one of the finest wildlife activities available in Africa. It is a highly exhilarating and emotional experience when you first set eyes on a wild mountain gorilla in their own natural environment

Nyungwe Forest National Park

Whilst the gorillas may be the ace in the Rwanda pack, no wildlife safari to Rwanda would be complete without the opportunity to view chimpanzees and colobus monkeys in the epic rainforests of Nyunge Forest National Park in the far south. Get up close in the treetops travelling along East Africa’s first canopy walkway, 40 metres above ground.

Akagera National Park

For a more traditional 4×4 safari terrain a visit to the rolling plains of this eastern wildlife park offers the opportunity to view herds of buffalo and elephant as well as leopard, hippo, giraffe and 11 species of antelope.

Lake Kivu

Shimmering Lake Kivu with startlingly blue water ringed by white sand straddles the western edge of Rwanda. This is the perfect location for some serious rest and relaxation after the meanderings of your safari.
