The “Land of a Thousand Hills” is the most magical of places in Africa to visit

Rwanda’s endless mountains create the most impressive scenes throughout this little country but nowhere are they more majestic than the Virunga volcanoes in the northwest. This misty region, filled with bamboo forest, is home to some of the world’s last remaining mountain gorillas. Other attractions include chimpanzees and Rwenzori Colobus in the Nyungwe Forest, the surprisingly beautiful beaches of Lake Kivu as well as Akagera, a small reserve in the east. Each year in June, the country celebrates Kwita Izina (The Baby Mountain Gorilla Naming Ceremony) and people arrive from all over the world to participate in this unique event.

At The SAFARI Company, we have lots of different itineraries that promise you incredible adventure among Rwanda’s beauty and we’ve listed out our favourites here. If you would like to do something else, we would be delighted to work on an itinerary that’s perfect for you.
