Rwanda Tour - Discover Rwanda exclusively

Rwanda - this fascinating country in the middle of Africa is also called "the land of a thousand hills". Join us on a journey across the great lakes and swamps of Akagera National Park, high up on volcanic mountains in search of mountain gorillas and deep into the dense green of the jungle in Nyungwe National Park. This small country combines the many facets of Africa and invites you on a breathtaking adventure into nature.

Day 1

Arrival in Rwanda

Upon arrival in Kigali, you will be met by your personal guide. He will accompany you on your onward journey to the Akagera National Park in the east of the country. Covering an area of 2500 km², a labyrinth of swamps, lakes, and green meadows provides the perfect habitat for zebras, antelopes, giraffes and elephants.

In the afternoon, you will immediately go into the middle of this beautiful natural landscape. On a boat ride, with a little luck, you may spot a few hippos lifting their heads out of the water.

An exciting experience where you can get very close to the playful chimpanzees with a little luck.
