Rwanda Luxury Active Adventure Trips

Endangered Mountain Gorilla Rwanda

 

The “Land of a Thousand Hills and a Million Smiles” is a country entrenched in a heartbreaking past but one full of optimistic people who smile brightly towards the future.

Rwanda has an instant association with its amazing mountain gorillas and dramatic mountain views. Its rich biodiversity in the Volcanoes National Park and the Nyungwe Forest, along with its charming people make Rwanda a place that visitors will long to return to. Explore tea plantations, unwind by the shore of Lake Kivu, or continue your safari in Akagera National Park.

Rwanda’s leading attraction is Volcanoes National Park, home to half of the world’s endangered mountain gorillas still living in the wild. Loved and studied for 20 years by researcher Dian Fossey, these amazing animals are greatly endangered and a visit with them will leave an impression on any traveler. Also, found within Volcanoes National Park are the fascinating golden monkeys which are worth visiting.

Nyungwe Forest National Park, shelters more than 25-percent of Africa’s primate species, including L’Hoest’s monkey, owl-faced monkey, black and white colobus, and the ever-popular chimpanzee. A hike through this park is a must for wildlife enthusiasts, and a venture across the 295-foot long Nyungwe Forest National Park canopy walk suspends visitors 130 feet above the ground to bring them eye level with the park’s incredible primates and bird life.

One of Rwanda’s best kept secrets, Lake Kivu is the world’s 18th deepest lake surrounded by mountains, outcrops of rocks, and beautiful green terraced tea plantations for strikingly dramatic scenery. There is nothing quite like nestling your toes in the sand and witnessing the fishermen on the lake, singing their songs at sunset.

Akagera National Park is home to a unique swamp ecosystem that is one of the largest protected wetland areas in eastern Africa. It also has lions and rhinos recently introduced to the park by the Rwandan Government.
