Discover Rwanda with Ujuzi African Travel

Rwanda is a flourishing country of lush mountainous terrain, giving it the moniker “Land of a Thousand Hills.” Ancient volcanoes tower above surrounding foothills, their rich soil giving life to emerald-green canopies. Home to endangered mountain gorillas and rare golden monkeys, Rwanda’s rainforests have a truly magical air.

Care for the environment is an integral part of the Rwandan ethos, tangible both in its remote natural areas and its bustling cities. The capital, Kigali, is the first city in Africa bestowed with the United Nation’s Habitat Scroll of Honor Award in recognition of its cleanliness, security, and commitment to conservation.

Gorilla Trekking Rwanda Safari

Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park is one of the few places on earth where humans still have the opportunity to encounter our evolutionary cousin, the endangered mountain gorilla—and it can easily be reached through air and land transfer from most African countries. Ujuzi African Travel is happy to arrange a short or extended stay in Rwanda to any safari itinerary.

On your gorilla trek extension, you will spend one to three days at a comfortable lodge on the edge of Volcanoes National Park. Each morning, you will wake up early to meet your guide and trek into the mountains to find mountain gorillas in their forest home.

10-Day Nature and Culture Rwanda Safari

On this Rwandan safari, you are likely to spot giraffes, zebras, many of the Big 5, and a diverse number of primates. Nyungwe Forest’s thriving troop of Ruwenzori black-and-white colobus is the largest community of monkeys not just in East Africa, but the entire continent. And beyond being home to mountain gorillas, the Virunga Mountains on Rwanda’s northwestern border are the only place in the world to see the endangered golden monkey.

With its mix of mountainous terrain, rainforest, and savanna, Rwanda is a delight for birdwatchers. You will have unparalleled opportunities to spot some of its 670 avian species.
