Tours In Rwanda Safaris

Rwanda is a landscape of incessant ascends and plunges… rightfully, the ‘land of a thousand hills’. The small country at the seam of East and Central Africa has quickly risen to become the latest fad in every nature lovers’ travel diary.

Squaring only 26,338 sq km, Rwanda is drenched in immense natural brilliance and diversity showcasing: impressive landscapes of precipitous mountains and rolling hills, dense rainforests, volcanic peaks and mountain gorillas, copious waterways and masses, wildlife sanctuaries and a rich and vibrant cultural heritage.

Rwanda sits cuddled between countries; with Uganda to the north, Tanzania to the east, Burundi to the south, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to the west. Its capital, the enchantingly picturesque city – Kigali.

The trekking experience typically lasts between four and eight hours, most of which is spent hiking through mystical bamboo forests, wild meadows, and swampy areas.
