Why Visit Rwanda?
Visit Rwanda is a movement trending In the north of Rwanda, Volcanoes National Park is extraordinarily beautiful and most famous for its brilliant gorilla tracking tours, often the highlight of any Rwanda safari. The park is home to the magnificent Virunga Volcanic Mountains, whose dense high-altitude forests protect about half the world’s remaining mountain gorillas.
Traditional safari game-viewing is especially good in Akagera National Park, in eastern Rwanda. Akagera is a mixture of woodland, open grassland and papyrus swamps. It boasts healthy populations of lion, leopard, plains game, hippo, giraffe, elephant, as well as many bird species. While it doesn’t rival East Africa’s much more famous safari parks, a few nights in Akagera following or preceding a gorilla safari in Volcanoes NP can make for a fantastic safari package.
In southern Rwanda, Nyungwe Forest National Park contains the largest remaining single tract of montane forest in Africa and is home to a phenomenal number of birds and primates, including chimpanzees, the Ruwenzori colobus monkey and the endangered golden monkey.
Lake Kivu, on the other hand, offers quite a contrast to the large National Parks, and can be an excellent finish to any trip around Rwanda; beautiful beaches, jutting peninsulas and an archipelago of islands, busy with traders and local fishermen in their dugout canoes, can be found here. Life around Lake Kivu is lively, and visitors can if they choose get a real feel for Rwandan culture.
Rwanda works well as a standalone safari destination or as an extension to a safari in Kenya or Tanzania (it is only a short flight from Nairobi). Whether you choose to visit Rwanda in isolation or as part of a broader itinerary, we do recommend that you take the time to explore this often-ignored African country. Tourism to Rwanda has dropped since the tragedy of the early 1990s, but visitors will be pleasantly surprised by the spirit of reconciliation which now exists in the country.
