About Rwanda Destinations
Trekking in the dense tropical forests of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, the trees clear to reveal a scene few others have witnessed, and one that remains under serious threat:
A troop of mountain gorillas. Some sit munching on leaves in pensive silence. Younger ones squabble as they tumble through the branches. The large silverback lazes, stretched out, in the dappled sunlight. And, with the help of our safari specialists, you could be right there, just a few steps away. Having explored the country extensively, our specialists will use their first-hand experience to plan your holiday to Rwanda, tailored to your interests and budget. As well as gorilla tracking, they can help you discover other parts of the country. See chimpanzees and up to 12 other primate species in Nyungwe Forest National Park. Or, relax on the sandy shores of Lake Kivu, one of Africa’s largest lakes.
Rwanda is still very much off the beaten track and so we operate completely private tours, led by carefully selected driver-guides who are with you for the duration of your stay. Our itinerary ideas are the product of extensive travel in the country, inspired by routes that our specialists have taken and enjoyed.
Why Travel Rwanda Destinations
Landlocked East African Rwanda has had a troubled recent history. Now however, the scars are thankfully healing and Rwanda is firmly back on the travel map. Known as the land of a thousand hills, Rwanda is a land of great natural beauty and a superb ecotourism destination. Most people come here to see the silverback mountain gorillas made famous by the film Gorillas in the Mist. When you’re not tracking animals, partying in Kigali, watching Intore dancers in Virunga or trekking to volcanoes, enjoy just hanging out with the warm and friendly Rwandans themselves.
Best time To visit Rwanda
The dry season in Rwanda, from June to September, is the peak time to travel. There is always the chance of a shower, however; especially in the rainforest, so waterproofs remain a good idea. Wildlife sightings become more common, so it's a popular time of year and prices rise accordingly.
How to get there
From the central minibus station in Kigali, swarms of minibuses inexpensively ply Rwanda. There is no rail service. There are a handful of internal flights and in Kigali there are several places where you can rent a car. Rwanda is great for mountain-bikers although you’ll need to bring your own bike and spares.
