Nestled in East Africa, Rwanda is a landlocked country known for its forested volcanoes, lush rainforests, and ultra-rare mountain gorillas. If an African safari is on your bucket list, then Rwanda will fulfill your wishes and more. You'll be immersed in an unforgettable adventure with Rwanda's wonderful local cultures, plethora of game reserves, and natural beauty.
Flying is the best way to reach Rwanda. Expect each one-way trip to take at least a day due to customs, layovers, and connecting international flights. Make your travel is the most comfortable by keeping all your essentials close in a rolling carry-on bag. Also, don’t be afraid to invest in first-class tickets for the long flights to have some extra service and privacy.
It will be easier to get around the country with the expertise of a guided tour group. Rwanda has three national languages: French, English, and Kinyarwanda. Your guides will know all the languages to effectively translate for you and make the trip run smoothly. You’ll also be informed about the culture and knowledge of the area. Here are some of the country's most famous landmarks that you can ask to be included in your custom safari.
Volcanoes National Park- This is Rwanda’s no.1 attraction for safari-seekers. Volcanoes National Park is one of the last places where you can see the elusive mountain gorilla. Right now, there are less than 1,000 of these beautiful primates left in the world! Volcanoes National Park is determined to protect this species, among many others, like the Golden Monkey, in this lush preserve.
Nyungwe Forest National Park- If you love monkeys, you need to explore this massive park, which is one of the oldest rainforests in Africa! Hire expert guides to help you track chimpanzees, baboons, vervet monkeys, red-tailed monkeys, and other delightful species of primates. You can also visit the 2.8 mile high Mt. Karisimbi to the park’s southwest, where you can see more chimpanzees and admire the beautiful plants of the mountain rainforest.
Akagera National Park- This wildlife preserve, which shares borders with Tanzania, will treat you to a safari of epic proportions. If you’ve been wanting to see some of the “big 5” animals like lions and elephants, then Akagera will surely deliver. You’ll see beautiful birds like the shoebill stork and rare animals like zebras, giraffes, hippos, and crocodiles. The topography also will enchant you with its diversity. Get your camera ready to commemorate your days in Akagera’s woodlands, mountains, lake Ihema, swamps, and savannah.
Travel Accommodations- Whether you’re cozied up in a tented safari camp or taking a break in a nearby town’s resort, your tour guides will make sure your downtime is restful and luxurious.
