Rwanda

Why Rwanda?

Rwanda is known as the land of

‘the thousand hills’ and visitors will truly understand why when visiting this beautiful country. Rwanda is blessed with a magnificent landscape and wildlife within its three national parks. The Volcanoes National Park is situated in the north of the country and is most famous for the gorilla trekking activity, Akagera National Park borders Tanzania and is therefore the best spot to view game. The Nyungwe National Park is situated in the south of Rwanda and is home to a unique birdlife and the first Tree Canopy Walkway in Eastern Africa.

Local Expertise

Of course, gorilla trekking is the top attraction in Rwanda, but I encourage everyone to take the time to visit Kigali, meet the locals and learn the history of this small but mighty country, such a humbling story that fills me with hope and awe.
