Rwanda Safari to the “Land of a thousand hills” and a million smiles! There is no better way to describe the abundant beauty of Rwanda than Church hill did. Rwanda is such a small country, relatively smaller than Scotland but beaming with all nature’s beauty, wonderful people, culture, and wildlife including the most endangered primate species; mountain gorillas that you will see during your Gorilla Trekking Rwanda experience. Rwanda Gorilla Tours in Volcanoes National Park are behind the hundreds of gorilla trekking tours the country receives each year.
A Rwanda Safari used to be primarily focused on a mountain gorilla safari, this has changed. The Rwandan government has invested heavily in the tourism infrastructure over the years to the extent that there is now a healthy selection of mid to high-end lodges and properties, and the safari sights and sounds do not rely wholly on the mountain gorillas. This growth is apparent as typical Rwandan safaris can include a selection of national parks with an array of wildlife highlights.
Rwanda. Meet Africa’s Mountain Gorillas:
Located a few degrees south of the Equator, Rwanda is one of the world’s smallest countries and is in a landlocked position between Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. All of Rwanda is at high elevation, with mountains in the west, savannah in the east, and numerous lakes throughout the country. The Volcanoes National Park is where Rwanda’s renowned gorilla safaris take place; attracting thousands of visitors every year.
The country hosts some rare species of animals in addition to the sought after silverback mountain gorillas; unique birds and insects are beautifully abundant in the tropical forest of Nyungwe.
Music and dance, particularly drums and the highly choreographed ‘intore’ dance, are an integral part of Rwandan culture. Traditional arts and crafts are produced throughout the country, including ‘imigongo’, a unique cow dung art.

Best Time To Go To Rwanda On Safari:
Safari visitors can happily travel through Rwanda Safari Tours at any time of the year, however certain times are better for particular activities. The Best Time To Visit Rwanda for tracking gorillas and biking is the dry season from June to September, whilst for photographers the wet season is best as there is less haze and more greenery. This is also the best time to track chimpanzees in the Nyungwe National Park. November to March is the best time for birding as flocks of migratory birds join the native species.
