Rwanda is, by area, the smallest country in our portfolio, but it is also one of the most diverse and interesting.
For most travelers, the primary reason to visit Rwanda is to enjoy Africa's best gorilla-trekking experience, in the beautiful Volcanoes National Park. A convenient three hour drive from Kigali (capital city and entry point), Volcanoes boasts the most world-class accommodation options and a very high success rate for encounters with the majestic mountain gorilla.
But there is much more to Rwanda than just the gorillas of Volcanoes National Park. Akagera National Park offers a high quality savanna safari experience that includes the "Big Five" as well as land and water-based safari activities, with the exclusivity of a private concession. And Nyungwe National Park is widely regarded as the most pristine montane rainforest in Central Africa, home to 13 different species of primates (25% of Africa's total), including chimpanzees.
Overlaying all of this natural splendor is one of the most remarkable stories of human triumph over tragedy, in the form of Rwanda's amazing recovery from the unthinkable genocide that took place in 1994.The bravery and resilience of the Rwandese people, their willingness to forgive and focus on a better future, and the pride that they feel in their country's subsequent success all make the cultural dimension of a visit to Rwanda at least as interesting as the natural highlights.
Aware of its many treasures, Rwanda is a luxury destination, pursuing a deliberate strategy of low-volume, high-value ecotourism (reminiscent of Botswana) that offers visitor a very high quality and exclusive travel experience while maximizing the financial benefits for conservation and the surrounding communities.Let us help you plan your dream safari. call toll-free: 888.227.8311 or today
