Here you can experience some of the best safaris in Africa, tick off a bucket-list experience and go in search of Dian Fossey’s Gorillas in the Mist and relax on the shores of one of Africa’s most beautiful lakes.
Volcanoes National Park is the most famous destination in Rwanda, home to ten different communities of mountain gorillas. Depart with your experienced guide in small groups in search of these magnificent beasts as well as golden monkeys. For safari, Akagera National Park offers a premier African safari experience as you explore the savannah spotting elephants, lions, giraffe, buffalo and much more.

For relaxation, the best spot in Rwanda is Lake Kivu. Head out onto the water for a boat trip or try your hand and canoeing or fishing.
