Rwanda offers guests some of the best primate tracking on the planet – set against the backdrop of its endless green hills and soaring mountainsides. Hiking through lushly sloping hills and spotting a gorilla peeking out from the bush, or happening upon a mother watching over her babies is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that changes you forever.
A Rwandan safari can now completely cater to your needs. A good week to ten days can afford you gorillas, chimpanzees, and savannah game, negating the need to travel further afield and keeping costs within reason.
It has to be said, the savannah game of Akagera National Park is still not to the high standards of the big game parks of Kenya or Tanzania, however, it is making progress fast and is definitely worthy of a visit on any Rwandan safari.
