Rwanda holidays & safaris
Holidays to Rwanda: Gorillas & more
If you want to see mountain gorillas, some of the closest relatives to humans, then choose a Rwanda holiday. There are not many more amazing wildlife experiences than sitting with a family group of gorillas.
Rwanda’s gorilla trekking in the Volcanoes National Park usually starts in the early morning. You head off in small parties to one of the known mountain gorilla groups, where the gorillas are used to the presence of humans. Typically most will just continue their natural interactions, while some may watch you with curiosity.
After a few days of gorilla trekking, most Rwanda holidays will pass Lake Kivu, with its breath taking scenery, and head to the southwest, to Nyungwe Forest – which is home to chimpanzees and a wide range of other primates.
