The Switzerland of Africa...

The magic of trekking up the Virunga mountains, amidst volcanoes and lush and green terrain, through dense jungle to reach wild, endangered mountain gorillas is one of the most life-changing experiences on the planet.

Best Suited to Which Type of Travelers:

Rwanda is suited for active travelers who want to see primates and hike, with a low density of tourists, enjoying a culturally rich experience and luxurious lodges.

We Recommend These Experiences:

• Trek the jungle with your guide and porters to get within feet of the iconic Mountain Gorillas in Volcanoes National Park.

• Add Nyungwe Forest, another must-see for the opportunity to track another great ape - the chimpanzees; Or spot the elusive golden monkeys and troops of the white Colobus monkey.

• Pull a kayak into the water or take a boat cruise on Lake Kivu, one of Africa's Great Lakes bordering the DRC.

• Visit the Genocide Museum in Kigali to better understand and respect Rwanda’s history combined with the colors and tastes at the vibrant markets.

• Go on safari at Akagera National Park in search of "Big Five" in the largest protected wetland in the region.

• Take in Rwanda’s stunning landscapes, like its rolling hills, mountains, and experience a tea ceremony at a tea plantation.

• Watch this space for safaris coming soon at the newest safari reserve...Giswati!
