Crafted Rwanda Tours

Rwanda has the largest remaining single tract of mountain forest anywhere in East and Central Africa and three national parks, Akagera, Nyungwe and the Volcanoes National Park. The last is home to the mountain gorillas. With their very existence under threat, it is one of the greatest privileges to see them in the wild in the vast volcanic Virunga conservation area that stretches into Uganda and Congo.

 

Inspired destinations

From canopy walks in Nyungwe Forest to canoeing on Lake Kivu, the Land of a Thousand Hills is, as Lonely Planet suggests, “a front row seat to the Jungle”.

The Volcanoes National Park, at the foot of the Virunga mountains bordering Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, is home to the endangered Mountain Gorillas that survive thanks to Dian Fossey, the researcher who dedicate her life to the study and protection of these gentle giants, and whose grave can be visited on a beautiful yet challenging hike up the mountain slopes. The lifetime experience of spending an hour in the company of a gorilla family is truly something that will be hard to top on your Travel Bucket list.

Nyungwe Forest, which stretches for 970 square kms across southeast Rwanda, is one of the world’s most ancient forests, dating back to before the Ice Age. The canopy walk, suspended 75m above the forest, offers an exhilarating bird’s eye view over one of the most important ornithological sites in Rwanda, where almost 3020 bird species reside. Lake Kivu, one of the Great African Lakes, offers a tranquil beach escape, whilst Akagera National Park to the East of the country boasts three eco-regions: savannah, mountain and swamp – and 4 of the big 5 with Rhino soon to be introduced.

Remarkable Rwanda is just that – from humble, hopeful locals to the many natural gems, unique wildlife encounters and a haunting history, there are countless reasons to visit and even more to return again.
