Rwanda Tours & Trips

Imagine yourself in Rwanda ‘living in the mist’ by joining a gorilla tracking tour through dense forest on the slopes of the Verunga volcano where you can overnite in a mountain view lodge. Tour villages whilst travelling through the beautiful countryside and be welcomed by happy locals. Colourful birdlife and monkeys of different species live happily in the national parks. Visit the National Museum in Butare to see an incredible collection of artefacts.
