“The land of a Thousand Hills“
Green and eco-friendly tourist destination, Rwanda is a green undulating landscape of hills, gardens and tea plantations. It offers tourists a one of a kind journey – home to one-third of the world remaining Mountain Gorillas, one-third of Africa’s bird species, several species of primates, volcanoes, game reserve, resorts and islands on the expansive lake Kivu, graceful dancers, artistic crafts and friendly people.
Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda
Rwanda’s most well-known attraction is undoubtedly its mountain gorillas, whose peaceful beauty has enchanted generations. Found in the mist-shrouded rainforests of the Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda’s gorillas comprise roughly half of the world’s wild gorilla population, with twenty distinct families calling the park home. Seeing the enigmatic mountain gorilla in their natural habitat is a life-changing experience; something that visitors will forever remember.
Safari in Rwanda
While Rwanda cannot boast the sheer variety of game viewing destinations that neighboring Kenya or Tanzania can, the country’s east does offer the opportunity to see some of Africa’s more famous wildlife roaming the plains. With three of the fabled big five (the African elephant, leopard, and Cape buffalo), the Akagera National Park in the east of the country is perfect for a day trip and a great way to check off any animals you might have missed in your primary safari destination. The park is home to thousands of wildebeest, antelope, zebra, and giraffes.
