Incomparable Luxurious Safaris to Africa's Top Wildlife Viewing Parks.
Officially the Republic of Rwanda, this landlocked country is among Africa's greatest treasures. Located in East Africa and situated in the African Great Lakes region, the lush landscape and rolling hills have given this nation the nickname "The Land of a Thousand Hills." Home to thousands of small farms and rural communities, modern cities like Kigali, and a diverse landscape boasting forests, mountains, and volcanoes, avid adventurers can see a little of everything in this small sovereign state.
While a historically remote area, tourism is on the rise in Rwanda. With so many beautiful places to explore, landmarks to marvel, and animal habitats to discover, visitors from around the world flock to see what this African paradise has in store. From the gorilla habitats in Volcanoes National Park to Nyungwe Forest National Park, a luxury safari through rural Rwanda can provide the experience of a lifetime.
Visit Volcanoes National Park
Located in the northwestern area of the country, Volcanoes National Park is arguably the gem of Rwanda. Spanning 160 square kilometers, this beautiful reserve is one of Africa's most revered – and most visited – destinations. Home to five of the eight Virunga Mountains – Karisimbi, Bisoke, Muhabura, Gahinga, and Sabyinyo – this expansive park houses one of the largest mountain gorilla colonies. Serving as a safe haven for these rare and endangered creatures, this park has functioned as a research destination for countless animal scientists, including American zoologist Dian Fossey.
Visitors to Volcanoes National Park have a chance to play witness to magnificent gorillas in addition to golden monkeys, spotted hyenas, buffalo, elephants, and more. For lovers of wildlife, no destination in Rwanda can rival what this park has to offer.
Navigate the Wild in Nyungwe Forest National Park
Primates play a key role in the ecosystem of Rwanda, and this is especially true in the looming trees of Nyungwe Forest National Park. Covering 970 square kilometers of forested land, this reserve is home to 275 bird species and over 25% of Rwanda's primate species, including the mountain monkey, owl-faced monkey, black and white colobus, and the chimpanzee. Visitors can even swing 130 feet above the ground with the monkeys while traversing the canopy walk, taking in breathtaking views of the forest around them.
