Rwanda

why

Rwanda?

First and foremost, to see mountain gorillas, its that simple.

Rwanda is currently working extremely hard to erase the bad memories of their past and we believe they are doing so successfully by implementing a responsible eco-tourism strategy that is having a positive effect on wildlife rehabilitation, increasing their habitats and supporting local communities. Rwanda should be on your list if you want to see rare primates in their natural habitat.

 

The Genocide memorial in Kigali is part of the country’s history and is well worth a visit, it is extremely moving, but at the same time uplifting, particularly seeing and experiencing how the people of Rwanda have moved together positively and are a success story in peace and reconciliation.

 

With its lush mountainous landscape and colourful culture, you will fall in love with this friendly, vibrant and diverse country.
