Rwanda Gorilla Trek Safaris
Like a tiny tropical jewel, Rwanda lies slap-bang in the middle of a wildlife treasure chest. Its forested, misty mountains, bursting with birds, butterflies and primates offer one of Africa’s most fascinating experiences: a Rwanda Gorilla Trekking Safari. Indeed, experts quietly affirm that Rwanda is probably Africa’s best destination to see these critically endangered mountain gorillas.
We offer gorilla trekking safaris specifically designed to deliver this once-in-a-lifetime experience – try our 4-day Gorillas in Parc National des Vulcans – a Rwanda Gorilla Safari is the perfect add-on to a Kenya or Tanzania safari.
But Rwanda is not just all about gorilla safaris. With its classic Central African ecology of mountains, rainforests, volcanoes and lakes; bird watching, fishing expeditions, hiking and even game viewing] are just a few of the exciting excursions that you could find yourself on – just familiarise yourself with Rwanda’s climate by checking out our ‘When to go to Rwanda’ section to make sure you get the timing of your trip right – after all, you are in the tropics.
Rwanda is a captivating country. It was on the bamboo-covered slopes of Rwanda’s Virunga volcanoes that the late Dian Fossey of Gorillas in the Mist fame studied the behaviour of the mountain gorilla for 20 years and it is in the bustling streets of the capital Kigali, the savannahs of the Akagera National Park and the forests of Nyungwe that Rwanda is reinventing itself as an African safari destination.
Accommodation in Rwanda ranges from the more luxurious hotel suites in the city to the more rustic mountain and safari lodges found in, and around, Rwanda’s national parks.
