About Rwanda

Experience Rwanda Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Kigali

Visit the attractive capital of Rwanda, Kigali. A great place to explore on foot, why not use free time to head out to the markets or people watch in a cafe.

Days 2-3 Nyungwe National Park

Rwanda's complex and tragic recent history is made clearer with a visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre - dedicated to those who lost their lives in the appalling events of 1994. Afterwards, journey to Nyungwe National Park, home to an abundance of primate species including monkeys, chimpanzees and baboons. Walk through the mountainous rainforest terrain in search of blue, golden and vervet monkeys as well as other mammals, insects, birds and amphibians. In the evening, stay in a simple lodge located right in the heart of this national park.

Days 4-5 Lake Kivu

Enjoy the cooler temperatures by chilling out on the peaceful shores of Lake Kivu. In free time, try fishing, go boating or simply relax and take in the incredible views.

Days 6-7 Gorilla Trek

Enter pristine wilderness and embark on a quest to find rare mountain gorillas, an endangered species on the brink of extinction. With the help of a knowledgeable guide, climb up steep passes and through dense forest to discover these gentle creatures living and playing in their natural habitat. The trekking through muddy terrain in a humid atmosphere is quite a challenge but the rewards are definitely worth it. At night, rest weary legs and enjoy the warm hospitality of friendly locals on a homestay.

Day 8 Kigali

Journey back to Kigali where this amazing adventure ends. Why not farewell Rwanda with a celebratory dinner?
