Best Rwanda Tours & Safaris

Nearly all of Rwanda’s tours and safaris revolve around gorilla trekking in the fabled Volcanoes National Park but because of the country’s close geographical and ecological ties with neighbouring Uganda, many of Rwanda’s tours encompass aspects of both countries.

Rwanda is not just all about tracking mountain gorillas; other great wildlife destinations such as the primate-packed Nyungwe Forest National Park offer fantastic chimpanzee and birding safaris that combine well with a Volcanoes National Park gorilla trek. In addition, Lake Kivu and Akagera National Park offer everything from beautiful views, excellent hiking and spectacular canopy tours to Big 5 game drives (all of the Big 5 are slowly being reintroduced to Akagera).

Our selection of top Rwanda tours and safaris also include combinations with some of Tanzania and Kenya’s most popular destinations: why not combine a Rwanda gorilla trek with the Masai Mara, Serengeti or even the Spice Island of Zanzibar?
