It is one of the friendliest countries, renowned for its comfortable facilities, fine food and a rich cultural heritage. Among the safest and friendliest of African capitals, Kigali City is blessed with a moderate high altitude climate that belies its tropical location, and is conveniently located within three hours’ drive of the main tourist sites including Volcanoes national park for gorilla trekking, Nyungwe forest for chimpanzee tracking and a city tour of Kigali in itself is aptly rewarding.

Rwanda is popularly known for its many tourist attractions. The landscapes in this green country are truly incredible. Fortunate people who have had chance to visit Rwanda have remarked that the physical beauty of the country is unique, unrivalled by any other beauty on the African continent. From all corners, you get to discover one of God's best creations – fresh water white sand beach, volcanic mountains, clean and green city. Lake Kivu offers beautiful beaches, jutting peninsulas and an archipelago of beautiful islands. Indeed a magical country, Rwanda boasts a wide variety of wildlife.

The Volcanoes National Park, in northern Rwanda is home to the world’s largest number of endangered mountain gorillas. Numbering in the hundreds, the gorillas live in a protected area, free from poachers. Witness Kwita Izina, the famous and unique Gorilla naming ceremony, which takes place once every year. The Akagera National Park in eastern Rwanda is crowded with both large and small wildlife and a variety of birds.

Discover a new African dawn! Wake up to a golden glow in the sky, mountains unveiling their mists, the air sweet and cool as it brushes your cheeks as you walk through a primeval forest bathed in green as you trek through the bamboo covered hills, thrill to the sight of that rarest of beasts, the mountain gorilla. The unique culture graced with the traditional dance is a must for sample.

We guarantee you will have incredible stories to tell as an African Safari about the beautiful country of Rwanda.
