Rwanda is a country of ever changing landscapes and friendly people. It is a country full of surprises. Rwanda is famous for its mountain gorillas, a highly endangered and fascinating animal of which around half of the seven hundred or so left on earth live on the mountainous slopes of the Parc National des Volcans. Rwanda is however a very varied place to visit, with rain forests, spectacular mist covered green mountains, sparkling lakes and very friendly and welcoming people.

Gorilla trekking is the main reason to visit Rwanda and looking into the eyes of these close relatives of mankind is a moving experience for which you are unlikely to be prepared.

SAFARI CLUB TIP

Combine a trip to see the mountain gorillas with the great wildebeest migration in Kenya or Tanzania for two incredible wildlife spectacles in one trip.


WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO GO?

Rwanda has a pleasant tropical highland climate with the lowland areas being much warmer than the highlands. It is possible to visit this park at any time but the trekking is easier in the drier seasons between Mid-December and Mid-March and June to Mid-October. It is still perfectly possible to travel during the wetter months when the scenery can be stunning and the conditions perfect for photography.
