Rwanda Holiday Guide

Rwanda Holiday Guide

Home of the Mountain Gorillas and Stunning Scenery

Rwanda is the land of a thousand hills. Rolling scenery dominates the landscape wherever you turn in this landlocked country in the heart of Africa. From majestic mountains and volcanoes to lakes and ancient forests, the stunning views are matched by the warmth and friendliness of the local people. Add to this the incredible wildlife and birdlife and you get a truly remarkable holiday destination and safari experience.

Whilst the chance to trek through a rainforest to come eyeball to eyeball with a mountain gorilla or a golden monkey in the Volcanoes National Park is undoubtedly one of the highlights of a visit to this remarkable country, there are many other reasons to add Rwanda to your holiday bucket list.

The capital city of Kigali is a hotspot of culture and home to the Genocide Museum, a poignant reminder of Rwanda's history of troubled times.

The Akagera National Park in the east of the country is Rwanda's only Big 5 National Park and is easily reached from Kigali, the capital city. Or head south and visit the tea plantations and dense forests of Nyungwe in search of chimpanzees.

Lake Kivu is the 6th largest lake in Africa and is an ideal stop over for anyone travelling between Nyungwe and Volcanoes National Park. The shoreline is dotted with sandy beaches and as there no hippos or crocodiles in the lake, a popular activity is to take a canoe or kayak out onto the still water and enjoy the mountain scenery in the distance.

The country has come a long way since the violent events of 1994 and is now ready to welcome visitors and help them to experience everything that Rwanda has to offer.
