Rwanda
Located in Central and East Africa, Rwanda is known as "The land of a Thousand Hills", a green, undulating landscape of hills, gardens and tea plantations. It is a thriving, safe country with one of the lowest crime rates in Africa and offers a one of a kind journey. Home to one third of the world's Mountain Gorillas, one third of Africa's bird species, several species of primates, volcanoes, game reserves, resorts and islands on the expansive Lake Kivu, graceful dancers, artistic crafts and friendly people, Rwanda is a destination not to be missed. 

 

Rwanda

Akagera National Park
Bordering Rwanda's eastern neighbor Tanzania and covering over 2500 sq km, Akagera National Park could not be more different to the breezy cultivated hills that characterize much of Rwanda. Dominated scenically by the labyrinth of swamps and lakes that follow the course of the Akagera River, this is an archetypal African savannah landscape of tangled acacia woodland interspersed with open grassland and home to over 500 different species of birds. Akagera is, above all, big game country! Herds of elephant and buffalo emerge from the woodland to drink at the lakes, while lucky visitors might stumble across a leopard, a spotted hyena or even a stray lion.


Nyungwe Forest National Park
Nyungwe Forest is the largest swathe of montane forest left in East and Central Africa. With about 280 bird species, it is one of the most important - and still undiscovered - bird watching destinations in Africa. Reaching to almost 3000 meters above sea level with Mount Bigugu the highest point in the Park, Nyungwe's forests extend to altitudes occupied by few other forests in Africa. Part of Africa?s Great Rift Valley, this forest is in the Albertine Rift, a mountainous section of East Africa that, as a whole, harbors more endemic birds, mammals, and amphibians than any other region in Africa.

 
Volcanoes National Park
The Volcanoes National Park protects the Rwandan section of the Virunga Mountains which are linked by fertile saddles, formed by lava flows, and are one of the most striking sights in East Africa. Although home to elephant, buffalo, and duiker they are best known for the 300 mountain gorillas that reside amongst the bamboo forests on the upper slopes. About half of these gorillas live permanently in the Rwandan sector of the mountains and gorilla tracking here is one of the wildlife highlights of Africa.
