Gorilla in Rwanda

Rwanda holidays 2022 & 2023

Trekking in the dense tropical forests of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, the trees clear to reveal a scene few others have witnessed, and one that remains under serious threat: a troop of mountain gorillas. Some sit munching on leaves in pensive silence. Younger ones squabble as they tumble through the branches. The large silverback lazes, stretched out, in the dappled sunlight. And, with the help of our safari specialists, you could be right there, just a few steps away.

Having explored the country extensively, our specialists will use their first-hand experience to plan your holiday to Rwanda, tailored to your interests and budget. As well as gorilla tracking, they can help you discover other parts of the country. See chimpanzees and up to 12 other primate species in Nyungwe Forest National Park. Or, relax on the sandy shores of Lake Kivu, one of Africa’s largest lakes.
