Rwanda is home to the mighty mountain gorilla in the magnificent lush forest of Volcanoes National Park. It is a humbling experience trekking to meet these impressive creatures.

The small, landlocked country of Rwanda is characterised by it's breathtaking scenery of undulating hills and mountainous terrain, from the lush rainforests to the west, which slope away to the valleys and lakes below, and into the savannahs and marshes to the east. The highlight of a visit to Rwanda is undoubtedly the mountain gorillas of the Virunga Mountains, however, Rwanda's incredible biodiversity allows a complete safari experience, from chimpanzee trekking in Nyungwe Forest to more traditional savannah-based safari in Akagera National Park. Although Rwanda's tragic history has been well documented, including the 1994 genocide, today 'The Land of a Thousand Hills' provides a remarkable and inspiring example of resilience to recover and rebuild from tragedy to become a stable, united and progressive country.

Dashing through the forest at high speed amidst a chorus of calls and panthoots, wild chimpanzee encounters are thrilling and exhilarating; a distinct contrast to their more gentle and docile cousin, the mountain gorilla. Their behaviour, similar in many ways to our own, is engaging and the experience thoroughly worthwhile.
