Rwanda Safari Tours: 2023 – 2024
Travel to Rwanda: Gorilla Trekking & More
Most travellers either fly into Kigali or drive over the border from Uganda (Gatuna / Kabale). The first destination is usually Volcanoes National Park (an extension of the Virungas) for gorilla tracking. Due to the dense, mountainous landscape, the treks are not easy but extraordinarily rewarding. Volanoes National Park also offers great birdwatching and viewing of other primates. You canalso do a 2-hour trek to Dian Fossey’s tomb and the Karisoke Research Station. Nyungwe Forest National Park is great viewing primates, including chimpanzees, hiking and birdwatching. Akagera National Park offers safari game drives and Lake Kivu is the perfect destination to relax after your safari .
