Despite being one of the smallest countries on the African mainland, Rwanda turns out to be a marvelous destination too. Travelling to Rwanda is very enjoyable. The country is one of the only three countries where the endangered mountain gorillas are found. Leave alone the gorillas, Rwanda also slots up among the few African countries with the big five animals. These animals are found in Akagera National Park, apparently the best place of wildlife viewing in Rwanda. Nyungwe Forest National Park is apparently the largest montane forest in the East African region and has its own canopy. Visiting Rwanda comes with a lot of desolation when you visit the genocide memorial monuments and merriment when you see the gorillas in their wilderness. The Rwanda tourism industry isn't so diverse but the few safari activities that are there are gold mine. Rwanda has their own airline and you will get to save a lot on flights especially if you are travelling from any of the few countries like United Kingdom where they operate from. Over the years, we have organized so many successful Rwanda travel holidays. These range from budget to luxury to super luxury. We are ready to do the same for you at very affordable prices. See some of our Rwanda travel packages below.
