Rwanda Safari Holiday Tour
Rwanda Safari Holiday Tour will always feature four important aspects: people, culture, national parks and gorilla watching. It's most celebrated for its gorilla populations and strictly managed safaris in Volcanoes National Park, although Rwanda’s other two national parks are also habitat havens, and often it's the chance cultural encounters that will make your heart skip a little faster. Nearly all of Rwanda's tours and safaris revolve around gorilla trekking in the fabled Volcanoes National Park but because of the country's close geographical and ecological ties with neighboring Uganda, many of Rwanda's tours encompass aspects of both countries.
Rwanda is not just all about tracking mountain gorillas; other great wildlife destinations such as the primate-packed Nyungwe Forest National Park offer fantastic chimpanzee and birding safaris that combine well with a Volcanoes National Park gorilla trek. In addition, Lake Kivu and Akagera National Park offer everything from beautiful views, excellent hiking and spectacular canopy tours to Big 5 game drives (all of the Big 5 are slowly being reintroduced to Akagera). Our selection of top Rwanda Safari Holiday Tour also include combinations with some of Tanzania and Kenya's most popular destinations: why not combine a Rwanda gorilla trek with the Masai Mara, Serengeti or even the Spice Island of Zanzibar?
Rwanda Safari Holiday Tour is famous for its gorilla trekking opportunities in the Virunga Mountains. This is where Dian Fossey researched and habituated mountain gorillas in the 1960s. Although gorilla trekking is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the country has a lot more to offer. In fact, if gorilla trekking is beyond your budget, Rwanda is still worth visiting as an up-and-coming destination offering primate walks, volcano hikes and bird-watching in Volcanoes National Park and Nyungwe Forest National Park, plus boat trips on Lake Kivu in the Rift Valley and a classic safari in search of the Big Five in low-key Akagera National Park.
