A central African country of unbelievable natural beauty. Scenes of rolling green savannahs, hills smothered with tropical rainforests and bamboo forests, falling to lakes (Lake Kivu is one of the African Great Lakes), then rising to dormant volcanoes and home to three protected national parks (Akagera, Volcanoes and Nyungwe).
The foremost reason for many who come to Rwanda is to spot its golden monkeys, and see Rwanda’s rare mountain gorillas and silverbacks in the wild. Defying its troubled past, Rwanda’s stability and hospitality is going from strength to strength.

Gorilla trekking in Rwanda is the ultimate wildlife experience. I remember feeling so excited during the trek, then, as we came into a clearing and saw the gorillas my heart started thumping... I was scared! After a few minutes I relaxed and we sat with the gorillas watching them play and eat for an hour - magical!
