Rwanda, also known as the “Land of a Thousand Hills’, is rich in natural beauty and wildlife diversity. According to Birdlife International, three national parks in Rwanda are classified as Important Birding Areas (IBAs). These are the Volcanoes National Park, Akagera National Park, and Nyungwe National Park. The country is also a top destination for a primate safari, with the Volcanoes National Park playing host to the endangered mountain gorilla, as well as several other primate species. On this safari tour, you will get to experience the best of Rwanda’s birding and gorilla tracking opportunities. You will visit the national parks, exploring the various habitats and spotting as many bird species as you can. There is a host of other wildlife species to see as well, including buffalo, elephant, zebra and hippo. The gorilla tracking experience is exhilarating and unforgettable- coming face to face with these gentle giants in their natural habitat will thrill you. You can also choose to take part in a chimpanzee tracking experience if you wish. The tour provides full board accommodation- you can choose from budget, mid-range and up-market lodge options.
