Discover Rwanda, in the heart of Africa, with this unique safari holiday and tailormade tour!

This Rwanda safari gives you an opportunity to try two exceptional wildlife experiences: chimpanzee trekking and gorilla trekking. A beautiful hike through the forest will lead you to these fascinating creatures where you can see them up close and personal. The chimp trekking differs a bit from gorilla trekking as the chimps are running around, making the sightings a bit more sporadic, and rushed but worthwhile nonetheless. A canopy walk in Nyungwe forest is a good way to experience the forest from up.

Safari Highlights:

  • Kigali city tour
  • Gorilla trekking
  • Chimp trekking
  • Canopy Walk
