Rwanda

Just a few degrees south of the equator lies the Republic of Rwanda, bordered by Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, south, east and west. To say that Rwanda is a country rich in biodiversity would be somewhat of an understatement. During your Rwanda holiday, enjoy three national parks which play host to an abundance of lush and vibrant flora and fauna, many of which are unique to this country.

Home to an estimated third of the world's remaining mountain gorilla population, golden monkeys and five of the eight volcanoes in the Virunga Mountain Range, the Volcanoes National Park lies in the northwest of the country and is covered in dense rainforest and bamboo. Rwanda is one of the best destinations for gorilla safaris in Africa. Undertake a Rwanda safari and you may experience on of life's most special encounters and come face to face with a mountain gorilla. 

Head east and you'll descend to the flatter savannah plains of the Akagera National Park where game populations include antelope, buffalo, elephant, zebra and giraffe as well as hippo and crocodile in and around its lakes. Nyungwe National Park meanwhile in the southwest of the country plays host to 13 species of primate including the common chimpanzee, olive baboon and silver and golden monkey as well as 275 of the country's 700+ species of bird in addition to butterflies, orchids and begonias. Situated in the Albertine Rift, Lake Kivu is the largest of Rwanda's lakes and affords magnificent views from its shoreline.

With such dramatic and spectacular scenery, Rwanda offers beautiful hiking opportunities, from climbing the Visoke, Muhavura or Gahinga Volcanoes, walking in the foothills and around the lakes or simply strolling in the villages near the lodges.
