Rwanda Travel Tours & Trips

Kigali's Genocide Memorial - a monument to the courage and resilience of the Rwandan people
Gorilla trekking in Parc National des Volcans
  • The Land of 1,000 Hills contains one of the world’s great wildlife experiences: trek through the bamboo forests of the Parc National des Volcans for a close encounter with mountain gorillas. Seeing at close quarters the interaction of the families, the infants, mothers and silverbacks, is a heart-quickening, massively moving moment – a highlight of any Rwandan adventure. And the beautiful bamboo forests on the country’s endless mountains hold other treasures – the chimpanzees of Nyungwe Forest, for example, abundant birdlife, and the elusive golden monkey. Visiting Rwanda is a joy: a country now full of optimism, and ready to show off its wonderful, protected natural endowment.

    As we walked closer I looked at a fellow gorilla trekker next to me and she...
