    RWANDA

    Known as the land of a thousand hills, Rwanda’s stunning scenery and warm, friendly people offer unique experiences in one of the most remarkable countries in the world. It is blessed with extraordinary biodiversity, with incredible wildlife living throughout its volcanoes, montane rainforest and sweeping plains. Travellers come from far and wide to catch a glimpse of the magnificent gorillas, yet there is so much more to see and experience.
    The west of Rwanda forms a branch of the Great Rift Valley known as the Albertine Rift. It has many unique, endemic species and is bursting with life. Chimpanzees, golden monkeys and other primates live alongside hundreds of brightly-coloured birds, orchids and butterflies. And that is only scratching the surface.
    Rwanda’s dramatic vistas are endless, with a fresh perspective around every corner. The country is full of beauty and managing to explore it all is easy, thanks to an excellent road network linking the core areas. Visitors can rest assured the country is safe as well as stunning – Rwanda was ranked the 9th safest country in the world by the World Economic Forum.
    Warm and friendly, Rwandans are also respectful, thoughtful and committed to the idea of progress, starting at the grass roots and running all the way to the top. From the ancient kingdom to the modern day, creativity is something to be celebrated, whether through traditional dance, unique architecture or works of art.
    The country continues to work towards overcoming its turbulent past. Many churches have been converted to places for paying respect to those who died in the 1994 genocide. The extensive, world-renowned Kigali Genocide Memorial has welcomed hundreds of thousands of young people, politicians and visitors from around the world.
    Safari Retreat’s expertise in Rwanda, along with our local knowledge and legendary service, make your trek as unforgettable as the country itself.

     

    A gorilla trek is electrifying.

    Hiking through lushly sloping hills and spotting a gorilla peeking out from the bush, or happening upon a mother watching over her babies is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that changes you forever. On a Safari Retreats journey you venture to one of the best places on earth to track gorillas, the exciting Parc National de Volcans (PNV). This 62-square-mile game park is home to the last surviving mountain gorillas as well as the endangered golden monkey, a species of Old World monkey with a golden-orange patch on his upper flanks and back.
    PNV is also one of Rwanda’s conservation epicenters, where visitors see the burial place of legendary scientist Dian Fossey and visit the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, which continues her legacy of research and gorilla advocacy. Outside of the park you experience Rwandan life at its best in its vibrant, bustling local markets.
