Although never forgotten, the tiny landlocked country of Rwanda has come a long way since the genocide-ridden days of the 1990s. Today, the Rwandans are a united nation, full of open smiles and genuine warmth, and are keen to show their gem of a country to anyone who would like to visit. And with vast tracts of unspoilt, luscious vegetation, spectacular sightings of iconic mountain gorillas in the mist, dense jungle forest and a healthy dose of culture and promise in Kigali, there’s plenty to show off and a lot more than first meets the eye. Mix and match lodges to create a safari that suits your style and budget.
With so much to do and see, planning a Rwanda safari can be daunting, but our safari experts will help you create and refine your trip until you’re completely happy.
