Rwanda

Rwanda was in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, until now! This country is fast emerging as a premier destination for African safaris, with international travelers flocking in herds. The land of a thousand hills - Book your holiday to this breathtaking country and see for yourself what makes it tick!
  • A spectacular terrain boasting 23 lakes, volcanoes, numerous rivers and densely forested mountain ranges.
  • Rwanda plays host to half of the continent’s endangered mountain gorillas.
  • A nature lover’s playground with an ecological diversity of both fauna and flora.
  • Take your pick from the range of luxury lodges, tented camps and world class hotels.

GORILLA TREKKING

Be a part of this stirring, yet soporific experience and spend one precious hour in the company of a mountain gorilla family. The biggest draw card for tourists, but only accessible to a privileged few. 80 permits each day that are only available to those with a clean bill of health.

CLEANEST COUNTRY IN AFRICA

Rwanda is a country that cares deeply about the environment, tidiness and the enforcement of rules. So much so that anyone entering the country with a plastic bag, automatically has it confiscated. It is estimated that roughly 80% of the Rwandan population actively practice “Umuganda”,  which loosely translates as “working together”. It is a community project of conscious citizens who meet once a month to clean up the communities streets and public areas.

WHAT TO LOVE ABOUT RWANDA

  • PARC NATIONAL DES VOLCANS (VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK): Tick gorilla trekking off your bucket list and hike the densely forested mountains in search of these gentle primates. Only a few visitors at a time, you can’t afford to miss out!
  • AKAGERA NATIONAL PARK: Make sure to include this park in your itinerary. The opportunities to view elephant, lion, hyena, giraffe and hippo, plus other different wildlife species are fantastic in Akagera.
  • NUNGWE FOREST NATIONAL PARK: Explore this Garden of Eden and discover over a hundred orchid species that will leave you bedazzled. Nungwe Forest also features some other primate species including chimpanzees. Birdlife is prolific, withwith over 670 species recorded countrywide.
  • MEMORIAL SITES: Rwanda holidays are not only about immersing oneself in nature and getting close and personal with our primate cousins. Take a tour of the genocide memorial sites in the capital, Kigali and learn more about this gruesome past.
  • LAKESIDE LIVING: Head to the shores of Lake Kivu - a lakeside retreat with all the makings of a tropical Indian Ocean coastline!
