Places to visit while on a Rwanda safaris

The most famous park for Rwanda safari holidays is the Volcanoes national park in the north-western part of the country. The park is frequented because of its residents the mountain gorillas. Gorilla trekking in Rwanda is the most sought after activity in the country. However there are other parks that tourist can consider visiting and these are Akagera National park in the east and Nyungwe National park in the South.

Nyungwe forest National Park is known to be the oldest tropical forest in Africa.  Nyungwe park is  home to a great number of primates including chimpanzees and the black and white colobus monkeys. Contrast to Nyungwe, Akagera national park is the only park in Rwanda where one can do safaris, with opportunities of viewing animals in a jeep. Despite the low numbers of animals compared to Kenya, Akagera offers excellent sceneries that are worth the 2 hour drive from Kigali.

Rwanda GorillasGorillas in Rwanda.

Mountain gorilla tracking in Rwanda is the ultimate wildlife experience that a person visiting the land of a thousand hills shouldn’t miss out on. Mountain gorillas currently are 1,000 in number as of the census that took place in 2017 and these are divided between three countries, that is Rwanda, Uganda and DR.Congo. Rwanda is known to be home to part of these mountain gorillas and there are about 15 Gorilla Family’s to visit per day.

The existence of over 1000 individual gorillas, is the proof of Africa’s greatest conservation stories that has been aided by tourism. This is in relation to the time when Dian Fossey first made the world aware of the existences of these great giant primates. In the 1960’s there were only 250 mountain gorillas left.

Mountain gorilla trekking permits aren’t cheap at all, but the experience is worth every coin. In Rwanda today mountain gorilla trekking permits costs USD 1,500 per person. Part of the proceeds go back to the local communities that protect the forests and home of these gentle giants. Below are some of the sample Rwanda gorilla trekking safaris.
