Visit Rwanda

Rwanda is a beautiful country located in East Africa. Known as the “Land of a Thousand Hills,” it offers stunning landscapes, a rich cultural heritage, and a remarkable history of resilience and progress. If you’re planning to visit Rwanda, here are some highlights and recommendations:

  1. Kigali: Start your journey in the capital city of Rwanda, Kigali. It is a vibrant and clean city with a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Visit the Kigali Genocide Memorial to learn about the country’s tragic past and pay homage to the victims of the 1994 genocide. Explore the local markets, art galleries, and enjoy the city’s culinary scene.
  2. Volcanoes National Park: One of Rwanda’s most famous attractions, Volcanoes National Park is home to the endangered mountain gorillas. Embark on a gorilla trekking adventure and have a once-in-a-lifetime experience observing these majestic creatures in their natural habitat. Remember to obtain a permit in advance, as they’re limited.
  3. Nyungwe Forest National Park: Another must-visit destination for nature enthusiasts, Nyungwe Forest National Park is a pristine rainforest rich in biodiversity. Take a guided hike through the forest trails, spot chimpanzees, colobus monkeys, and various bird species. The Canopy Walkway offers a thrilling experience, allowing you to walk above the treetops.
  4. Lake Kivu: Relax and unwind at Lake Kivu, one of Africa’s Great Lakes. The lake’s clear waters, surrounded by lush green hills, provide a perfect setting for swimming, boating, and enjoying water sports. You can also visit the scenic lakeside towns of Gisenyi and Kibuye, known for their stunning views and vibrant local culture.
  5. Akagera National Park: Located in eastern Rwanda, Akagera National Park is a diverse wildlife sanctuary. Embark on a game drive and spot animals like elephants, giraffes, zebras, lions, and numerous bird species. Boat safaris along the Akagera River offer a unique perspective on the park’s wildlife and landscapes.
  6. Cultural Experiences: Rwanda has a rich cultural heritage that you can explore through cultural villages, traditional dance performances, and interactions with local communities. Visit the Iby’iwacu Cultural Village or the King’s Palace Museum in Nyanza to learn about Rwanda’s history, traditions, and royal heritage.
  7. Genocide Memorials: While emotionally challenging, visiting the genocide memorials scattered across the country is an important aspect of understanding Rwanda’s history and paying respects to the victims. Besides Kigali Genocide Memorial, you can also visit the Murambi Genocide Memorial and Ntarama Genocide Memorial.

Rwanda is a safe and welcoming country, and its people are known for their warmth and hospitality. Enjoy your trip to Rwanda and take in the beauty and resilience of this remarkable nation with Turkana Wildlife Safaris.
