Tucked in between the iconic safari destinations of Kenya and Tanzania, Rwanda offers guests some of the best primate tracking on the planet – set against the backdrop of its endless green hills and soaring mountainsides.
With over half of the world’s remaining mountain gorilla population, it’s no surprise that the majority of guests visit Rwanda to track and view our highly endangered cousins. Rwanda is superb for primates in general, including the fun-loving Sykes monkey, the Golden monkey and the boisterous chimpanzee in the Nyungwe Forest.
Despite a turbulent past, Rwanda is a safe and friendly destination – testament to the resilience of its people. For guests seeking a deeply enriching safari, Rwanda offers an experience that is difficult to find anywhere else.
- Volcanoes National Park is perhaps the best place for a meaningful and informed gorilla experience
- Take a tour of remembrance by visiting Kigali Genocide Memorial
- Trekking the active chimpanzees in Nyungwe, and tour the lush tea planation in Nyungwe surrounds
- Some of the best safari accommdations in Africa are newly built in Volcanoes National Park
All year round, however please note that gorilla trekking routes could be muddy during rainy season (Apr - May)
