Rwanda
Rwanda reminds us volcanos and green mountainous landscapes, where one can enjoy one of the most exceptional wildlife experiences in Africa…

Rwanda earned the signature of ‘Le Pays des Mille Collines’ which means “Land of a Thousand Hills”, because it said that the mountains of Rwanda are cloaked in endless equatorial jungles. Positioned in East Africa, Rwanda has a diverse culture with friendly and resilient people. Rwanda’s capital city Kigali, is spotlessly clean and boasts chic boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants and accommodation. But perhaps Rwanda’s is most distinguished for its

Volcanoes National Park which is home to mountain gorillas and golden monkeys. It is one of only three countries in the world that offer gorilla trekking where one may be up close and personal with these majestic mountain creatures. It is estimated that there are only 780 mountain gorillas still in existence, in the world, making this experience one to behold. Rwanda however also offers the explorative traveller safari options other than gorilla trekking.
