What to see in Rwanda?

Visting The Volcanoes National Park

By far the most prevalent tripshade in Rwanda focuses exclusively on the prime gorilla location of Virunga mountains.

Set in the northwest of Rwanda, Virunga mountains is one of the leading locations in Africa for viewing mountain gorillas, plus options for other primates and cultural interaction. Guest accommodation is in a very wide range of lodges, some of which are extremely high quality. But here, majority of the visitors simply raid into the country for the gorillas and then head off to other countries for savanna safari mostly Serengeti.

Tracking Chimpanzees In Nyungwe Forest National Park

Approximately 5% of Virunga mountains choose to combine with the chimpanzee areas of Nyungwe to the south.

Situated in the south of Rwanda, Nyungwe is an important tropical forest reserve, the finest location in the country for viewing chimpanzees, plus a wide range of hikes through forest and tea plantations.

Game Viewing Safari at Akagera National Park

Almost all visitors to the Virunga mountains choose to combine their gorilla experience and with some kind of savannah safari and this means that Akagera has got something of a niche option.

Set in the northeast of Rwanda, Akagera is a scenic savannah reserve, subject of major conservation and restoration project now quite advanced and notably including the reintroduction of lions and other animals. Guest accommodation here is in a handful of rather cool pioneering camps.

Singita Kwitonda Lodge, Volcanoes National Park

There’s the extraordinary location of this ultraluxe ecolodge, at the foot of three volcanoes. There’s the elegant contemporary design of its eight suites and four-bedroom private villa, Kataza House, all with floor-to-ceiling windows, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and heated pools. The food and wine? Outstanding. The idea? A cozy sanctuary in which to reflect on the life-changing encounters for which one comes here—with Rwanda’s mountain gorillas.
