Visit Rwanda for volcanoes, lakes and gorillas

Social chatter buzzes with stories of Rwanda. This compact country in East Africa, known as the Land of a Thousand Hills is home to incredible scenery, friendly people and amazing experiences.

Gorilla trekking in the Virunga Mountains of the Volcanoes National Park, wildlife viewing in Akagera National Park, and chimpanzee sighting in Nyungwe Forest National Park rate as the top three experiences in Rwanda.

Add kayak and canoe excursions on Lake Kivu or an overnight stay on tea plantations at Sorwathe or Gisovu, and Rwanda provides the opportunity for a multi-experience holiday
