The heart of Africa, remarkable Rwanda is a pristine wilderness of unrivalled biodiversity, including virgin rainforests, beautiful mountains and thundering waterfalls.

The thriving capital of Kigali is nestled along picturesque hilltops and renowned for its cleanliness, warm hospitality, and its thriving cultural and culinary scene. Kigali’s location in the centre of the country also makes it an ideal base for exploration.

Just a two-hour drive away is Volcano National Park – home to an estimated half of the world’s population of wild mountain gorillas. The dramatic landscape also offers thrilling hiking and visits to the fascinating golden monkeys. To experience a classic African safari head to the beautiful Akagera National Park: with Lake Ihema in the background and cooler temperatures, this is a safari experience unlike any other. Meanwhile the Nyungwe National Park is an untouched natural rainforest, filled with biodiversity and home to chimpanzees and 12 other primates species and 300 species of birds.
