Celebrated as the, land of a thousand hills, Rwanda is a mountainous safari country with lush valleys, towering mountains, lakes, and a moist, temperate, year-round climate. A safari to Rwanda offers some of the most spectacular scenery in Africa, not to mention some truly remarkable wildlife, of which the most notable are the mountain gorillas in the Volcanoes National Park.
Having seen its fair share of political strife and turmoil, Rwanda is slowly reclaiming a place as one of Africa's top destinations. From the bustling streets of Kigali to the misty slopes and dense jungle of the Volcanoes National Park, there is a change underfoot in Rwanda as the country welcomes visitors with open arms and inspires Africa's change. There is good leadership in Rwanda, excellent economic growth, and peace.
The highlight to most Rwanda safaris is visiting the families of Mountain Gorilla, for more information on this please see our complete section on gorilla trekking in the 'experience' menu.
