Rwanda Holidays

Rwanda, with its beautiful, rolling mountainous landscapes, was best known as Africa’s premier gorilla tracking destination, until the tragic events of 1994. However, the country has been peaceful for well over a decade now, and has by its own efforts achieved both reconciliation and reconstruction. Tourism has an important part to play in this recovery. You will find both the best gorilla tracking and a genuine welcome on a holiday in Rwanda. It's a tiny country right in the heart of Africa, half the size of Scotland, and surrounded by some massive neighbours – the Congo, Uganda and Tanzania.  A country of hills, lakes and rivers, with a rich tapestry of  green and fertile landscapes, Rwanda is a delight. See a selection of our tailor-made Rwanda holiday ideas below.

The highlight of any Rwanda holiday is meeting its Mountan gorillas in Volcanoes National Park and also spotting the 13 species of primate in Nyungwe National Park. But don't miss beautiful Lake Kivu and the lakeside towns, Butare, the former capital with its famous Intore dancers and important ethnographic museum, Akagera National Park with its excellent birding and Kigali, the capital city.

Many people visit Rwanda purely to see the gorillas, and we can arrange this for you, but Rwanda holidays can offer so much more. We have a good range of Rwanda tours which enable you to see a little more of this fascinating country or ask us about a gorilla and beach combination.

Email us or call us to speak with one of our travel specialists about their first hand experiences of travel in Rwanda.
