Known as the land of a thousand hills, Rwanda’s stunning scenery and warm, friendly people offer unique experiences in one of the most remarkable countries in the world. Blessed with extraordinary biodiversity and with incredible wildlife living throughout its volcanoes, montane rainforest and sweeping plains, Rwanda is a country like no other.
Travellers come from far and wide to catch a glimpse of the magnificent gorillas, yet there is so much more to see and experience. Tick the Big Five off your bucket list on a safari in the spectacular Akagera National Park. Or, head to one of the oldest rainforests in Africa, Nyungwe, to trek with our closest relatives, chimpanzees, and explore dramatic tea plantations. Head to Lake Kivu in the west of the country to satisfy more outdoor and adventure cravings by hiking, mountain biking or cycling the off the beaten track Congo Nile Trail or simply relax on the lake shore at one of the gorgeous properties. Finish your trip by immersing yourself in Rwanda’s rich history and heritage in its thriving and cosmopolitan capital city, Kigali. Visit local co-operatives and markets, head to the modern and quirky coffee bars and try some of the best food in Africa!
Don’t forget that Rwanda’s incredible conservation credentials also mean whenever you visit you know that your holiday is positively impacting local communities and wildlife.
