Rwanda is a lush, scenic landscape of majestic mountains, nowhere more so than the Virunga volcanoes in the North-West; home to the world’s last remaining Mountain Gorillas.
"Don’t just go ape! Seeing the mountain gorillas is, for many, a dream come true. But why let the dream end there? A trip to Rwanda combines perfectly with a full-on ‘big five’ safari in the astounding Maasai Mara."
Even without gorillas, Rwanda is a stunning destination. Lake Kivu, for example, has sublime inland beaches and perfect coves for discovery by canoe. The South-Western Parc National Nyungwe Forest is an epic rainforest; the largest in the region. And the people are welcoming and warm, belying the horrific events here in the 1990s.
