A land of lush mountains and steaming rainforests, this is Africa at its most sublime. Expect mountain gorillas, rainforest hikes, and a welcome unlike anywhere else in the world. 

Known as the 'Land of a Thousand Hills', Rwanda is far removed from the familiar scenes of the savannah; it is here that you can encounter mountain gorillas in the wild on guided treks through the Volcanoes National Park, observing their complex social structures as they live and play in their gorilla nests. With strict restrictions on the number of visitors who can enter the park each day, gorilla trekking is a truly exclusive and memorable experience, the undoubted highlight of a holiday to Rwanda.  

Whilst Rwanda’s mountain gorilla population is its main attraction, this small but diverse country is home to a vibrant culture - best experienced in the capital Kigali – and a wealth of extraordinary wildlife. In the Akagera National Park, Rwanda's only game reserve, you can experience a “big five” safari, spotting animals such as giraffes, hippos, and lions on dedicated game drives. The Nyungwe Forest National Park offers opportunities to track chimpanzees with expert guides, home to two habituated groups of these highly intelligent primates. For birdwatching enthusiasts, the tropical shores of Lake Kivu are abundant with extraordinary wetland and aquatic bird species.

Things to do in
Rwanda
Gorilla Trekking Volcanoes National Park

Home to approximately a third of the world's mountain gorilla population, the Volcanoes National Park is one of the best places to visit to see mountain gorillas in the wild. On expert-led treks into the lush forests of the park, you'll have the opportunity to encounter a habituated mountain gorilla group, learning about their unique behaviours as you watch them interact with one another.

Bird Watching

Venture into the lush landscapes of Nyungwe and discover a spectacularly rare array of magnificent birdlife, right outside your fantastic luxury resort.

Led by a specialist guide, you’ll be taken deep into the Nyungwe National Park and shown the most famed and iconic bird species the world has to offer. Boasting over 300 different kinds of birds, Rwanda is a birder’s dream to say the least. With some of the rarest and most captivating species calling these emerald-hued wonderlands home, you’re guaranteed to have picture-perfect moments that you’ll remember for years to come.

Chimpanzee Trekking

Take a rare and unique excursion through the spectacularly lush rainforests and jungles of Rwanda and you may be rewarded with a truly extraordinary sight.

Home to one of East Africa’s largest chimpanzee populations, you could witness these beautiful animals as they climb, play and rustle through the trees far above your head. Led by expert trackers, Nyungwe is the perfect place to see chimpanzees, with best viewing taking place on early morning treks, hop out of bed early and start your day with an invigorating hike and a once in a lifetime sight of one of the world’s most fascinating animals.

Helicopter Ride

What could be more exhilarating than trekking through lush emerald-hued rainforests teeming with a vibrant array of wildlife and boasting spectacularly beautiful views? Soaring above them, of course.

Take to the skies and admire the magnificent rolling hills and dynamic forestry of Rwanda’s beautiful landscapes. Mother Nature worked wonders on this fantastic wonderland, and it is all just waiting to be explored by you. Take in the breath-taking view of the Nyungwe Forest from above to gain an incomparable perspective of just how vast these jungles and surrounding landmarks, such as Lake Kivu, are.

Tea Factory Tours

Learn anything and everything there is to know about Britain’s favourite hot beverage with a fascinating tour of Rwanda’s famed plantations and factories.

Discover the secrets and all the tricks of the trade, from the very moment the fragrant tea leaves are picked to the finished product being ready to be shipped to an array of destinations around the world. You can even learn what makes a perfect cup of tea from brewing experts and, of course, no lesson would be complete without some tasting! Indulge in Rwanda’s take on afternoon tea and learn from the masters.

Stargazing

If you think the verdant forests and dazzling emerald rainforests of Rwanda are beautiful under the glow of the radiant African sun, wait until you see them under the glistening halo of the stars.

Venture out after sunset and witness as the forests come alive and all of the incredible nocturnal animals come out to play. Led by an expert guide, you’ll be shown all of the best stargazing spots and told fascinating stories about the equatorial night sky, which will be illuminated by a magnificent display of twinkling stars. Many planets can also be seen on clear nights, just after sunset, as well as iconic constellations.
