Rwanda – Land of a thoursand Hills

Rwanda is an eco-friendly tourist destination and although not very large in size, it still has a lot to offer! Travelers are rewarded with some of the best primate tracking on the planet – all set against an incredible backdrop of lush green hills and beautiful mountain ranges.

The majority of travelers visit Rwanda to trek with the gorillas and view them in their natural environment. Encountering wild gorillas without any fences is the climax of any African journey. After the arrival at Kigali Airport, travelers proceed to the north-west corner of the country: to Volcanoes National Park.

Volcanoes is the jewel of Rwanda – a steep evergreen forest within the magnificent Virunga’s mountain range. Tracking to encounter the endangered mountain gorillas and standing face to face with them is something you will never forget! A stay can be combined with another primate highlight: a trek to golden monkeys.
