Experience the highlights and beauty of Rwanda on this 8-day safari. Start the journey by driving south to the historical seat of the kingdom, Nyanza, and visit the restored Royal Palace and Art Museum. Discover a true nature lovers’ paradise in Nyungwe Forest National Park, an expansive area of rainforest, bamboo, grassland and swamps in the majestic hills of southeast Rwanda. The luxurious Nyungwe Forest Lodge sits on the edge of the National Park nestled in a tea plantation, with luxury rooms raised on timber decks and wonderful views from each private veranda. Discover the rich variety of trees and flowering plants, colobus monkeys, chimpanzees, and other primates, together with an abundance of birdlife. Enjoy an overnight stay on the sandy shores of Lake Kivu, Africa’s sixth largest lake, with the Virunga Mountains providing a spectacular backdrop. Finally the ‘finale’ of the trip is an exhilarating trek to view the rare and critically endangered Mountain Gorillas in the Parc des Volcans, with accommodation at Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge situated in the foothills and only minutes away from the park HQ. This is indeed the very best of Rwanda.
