Rwanda Safari Destinations

Known as “The land of a Thousand Hills”, Rwanda is filled with green undulating hills, gardens and tea plantations, but is most famous for being home to more than half of the world’s last surviving mountain gorillas about 350 of them. Gorilla Trekking is the primary reason visitors go to Rwanda. Sitting with a small family group of some of the closest relatives to humans is one of the world’s greatest wildlife experiences. The gorillas are protected by the Volcanoes National Park in the magnificent Virunga Mountains, situated in north-western Rwanda.

The Volcanoes National Park borders Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda. The National Park is known as a haven for the mountain gorilla and was the base for the zoologist Dian Fossey’s research into this gentle giant. Rwanda now has ten habituated gorilla groups, the largest number of in Africa, making it the prime gorilla trekking destination. On a gorilla trekking tour, you spend 1 hour in close range of a small family group of some of the closest relatives to humans. This is one of the world’s greatest wildlife experiences and a gorilla safari is a ‘must’ for serious wildlife enthusiasts.
