Get to know Rwanda on this 8-day Rwanda itinerary, the country nicknamed ‘The Land of a Thousand Hills’, in East Africa. Rwanda’s gorgeous scenery, warm people and unique wildlife encounters make it a bucket-list journey.

Your adventure begins in Kigali, a vibrant city and usually the starting point for unforgettable chimp trekking and gorilla encounters. After your first night, you will be taken into the heart of the Nyungwe National Park, a quintessential tropical rainforest, surrounded by misty hills and resounding with birdsong, and the distinctive calls of the chimps. Your days will be spent chimp trekking, watching these playful creatures in their natural habitat followed by sublime evenings at the One & Only Nyungwe House, the essence of remote luxury.

Your journey continues to Lake Kivu, where you will spend a night enjoying a resort haven before heading to the renowned Volcanoes National Park. This is where more than a third of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas live in their high-altitude cloud forests. Your last few days will be centred around exploring the landscape and having one of the world’s most sought-after wildlife experiences.
