With volcanoes, rainforests and rivers, and some of the rarest primates in the world, Rwanda has been blessed with its natural beauty. ‘The land of 1000 hills’ is set at altitude and lush green adorns its sweeping slopes before disappearing high into misty peaks. Amongst the steamy summits is Rwanda’s biggest draw – gorillas. It’s the experience of a lifetime for wildlife enthusiasts to trek and be among these graceful giants in their natural habitat.
Chimps and Gorillas is a five-night itinerary in Rwanda, combining a visit to chimps in the Nyungwe National Park and gorillas in the Parc National de Volcans. Both experiences are amazing and not to be missed.
