Gorilla trekking in Rwanda is on every wildlife enthusiast's bucket list. A truly unforgettable experience. Despite a history steeped in tragedy with the devastating genocide that took place in 1994, Rwanda is slowly proving itself a friendly and exceptional travel destination. The critically endangered Mountain Gorilla inhabits the steep slopes of it's volcanoes and chimpanzee families dwell in tree canopies. Rwanda's landscape offers green rolling hills, gardens and tea plantations and scenic savannah plains with plentiful African wildlife within its game reserves and National Parks. The country is home to a third of Africa’s bird species and several species of primates in the Nyungwe Forest National Park. Rwanda’s location makes it an ideal destination to combine with other East African luxury safari experiences. And even though it is still a developing country, it offers a good range of accommodation which serve as your base for your Rwandan adventure of a lifetime.
