Rwanda Holidays

A trip to Rwanda promises heart-stopping adventure and wonderful wildlife encounters.

As home to almost a third of the world’s mountain gorilla populaton, trek through the bamboo forests, shadowed by the Virunga volcanoes, in search of these majestic animals. Visit one of the many national parks to see even more wildlife, such as giraffes, hippos and elephants. Tour the bustling capital city of Kigali, and walk or drive the Congo Nile trail for spectacular scenery and memories to last a lifetime.

For even more safari adventure, head to the Masai Mara before or after your trip to remarkable Rwanda. Or, for a complete contrast, swap the jungle for Mombasa’s beautiful shores and calm waters for a spot of relaxation.
