Rwanda Safaris

It is not often considered that there are luxury Rwanda safaris to be had, but the country is becoming more aware of the needs of the more discerning traveller.

The incredible biodiversity of Rwanda gives rise to the impression of a larger land mass than is the reality. Located near the centre of Africa and bordered by Uganda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Tanzania, Rwanda has a fertile and hilly terrain that makes it an explorers dream. Also known as the home of American ethnologist Dian Fossey, who studied gorillas in Rwanda's mountain forests, it is one of the few remaining places on earth where you can take an Africa safari and track the endangered mountain gorilla. An hour spent in the company gorilla brings home how fragile their population is. It also emphasises the wonder of an animal so physically powerful, yet gentle and so utterly dependant on human goodwill for their survival.

Rwanda has not always enjoyed a harmonious existence and to help gain a better understanding of the horrific events of 1994, a tour of the genocide memorial sites and museum can be organised. Although this is not a usual holiday activity it is more a mark of respect to visit than a mawkish pursuit.

If you want a tailor-made holiday or are looking for Rwanda safaris you can be assured of a warm welcome as not having been exposed to mass tourism, the people of Rwanda are genuinely hospitable and welcoming to any outside visitor, be it into their homes or to their country. Proud people, with rich and ancient cultures, they leave new arrivals enchanted.
