Rwanda offers unforgettable gorilla trekking tours and an abundance of diverse and spectacular safari parks.
For sheer diversity of species, Rwanda is a big hit with wildlife fans! Volcanoes National Park is home to one of only two populations of mountain gorilla! On your way to seeing these majestic mammals in their natural habitat, you can look out for forest elephant, buffalo, spotted hyena, black-fronted duiker, bushbuck, and some brilliant birdlife! Golden monkey treks are on offer too.
For classic Big Five game viewing, you can head to Akagera. This region also contains Maasai giraffe, Burchell’s zebra, and an impressive assortment of antelopes, roaming its scenic highlands and plains, and quenching their thirst at its lakesides! There are hippopotamus and crocodile too, and approximately 480 bird species. We also love Nyungwe Forest, with its magnificent old ebonies and mahoganies strewn with colourful plant life. Forest thrills await at every twist and turn, as the park boasts 13 primate species, 85 types of mammal, and 275 bird varieties. Gorilla and monkey treks are possible here too, as well as a fantastic treetop canopy forest walk!
Akagera is the only national park in Rwanda that contains all Big Five species – lion, rhino, leopard, elephant, and buffalo!
Volcanoes National Park is famous for its mountain gorillas! Worldwide, there are just two populations of these magnificent mammals.
Nyungwe Forest is one of the most beautiful regions of Rwanda! Among the area’s highlights are its majestic old ebony and mahogany trees, surrounded by immense ferns and strewn with colourful flowering plants.
