AFRICA’S BEST GORILLA TREKS

Rwanda is known for her majestic mountain gorillas and dramatic mountain views, but also offers a rich biodiversity, charming local culture and some of the world's most iconic eco-sensitive accommodation. Rwanda is justifiably one of Africa's ultimate 'off-the-beaten-track' destinations. From traditional safaris in Akagera National Park to trekking the rainforests of Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda is the perfect place for those seeking to satisfy their adventurous side.
