For many mentioning Rwanda and mountain gorillas gives associations to Dian Fossey and her work to protect these gentle giants made famous by the book and film Gorillas in the Mist. In the Virunga Mountains it is possible to trek mountain gorillas and meet these rare fascinating primates. The country is largely spread out on hills and mountains so many stunning views awaits a visitor.

Attractions on safari in Rwanda:

Gorilla trekking in Rwanda

 Parc National des Volcans: This is the national park in the Virunga Mountains where Rwanda’s mountain gorillas are protected. Here you go for a gorilla trekking adventure taking you through the rainforest to the spot where the gorillas are and get to spend one unforgettable hour with them.


A’Kagera National Park: Close to the boarder to Tanzania this park of wildlife is found. During a game-drive you can expect to see elephants, giraffes, zebras, antelopes and more. For a birder the park offers over five hundred species of birds including the peculiar shoebill stork. 


Lake Kivu: Being the largest of the freshwater lakes in the Albertine rift valley with several of the lakeshore towns offering hotels and beaches with palm trees this is a great spot to relax during safari.


Kigali: Rwanda’s capital is built on hills and you can get a nice view of it from the heights. A city tour here includes visits to a craft market and the genocide memorial site. Rwanda is healing after the terrible 100 day genocide in 1994 but they are remembering their history and a visit to the memorial site gives you a picture of what happened.
