Gorillas, chimps and a whole lot more….

Rwanda, known as the "Land of a Thousand Hills," is a small but captivating country, with lush green landscapes and a pleasant climate.  One of the safest and cleanest places in Africa, it offers a unique blend of natural beauty, cultural experiences, and historical significance. Most people visit Rwanda on a short extension just to see gorillas, but by doing that they are missing out on so much more.

When to go?

The best time to visit Rwanda is during the dry season, from June to September and December to February.  Although trails are more accessible when dry, gorilla trekking is available year round and for birdwatching, or unique experiences with fewer tourists, the wet season is still a good time to visit.
