A Rwanda safari is quite different from most classic East African safari holidays. Most of the activities require hiking in rain forests. Africa's easiest and most accessible gorilla trekking is the main draw card of a Rwandan safari. Rwanda offers magical scenery and excellent hospitality.
Bisate Lodge in Rwanda, adjacent to Volcanoes National Park, offers world-class luxury & dramatic views within Rwanda's incredible gorilla-trekking circuit. combines the bucket-list gorilla trek with a pioneering vision of reforestation. The Lodge enjoys a truly dramatic natural setting at the heart of an amphitheatre formed by eroded volcano cones. Six conically shaped thatched forest villas are tucked into the lush forest setting with spacious verandas opening out onto magnificent views of the surrounding peaks. From your sumptuous villa on the slopes of an eroded volcanic crater, designed in the traditions of Rwandan royalty, gaze through a curtain of mist at two extinct volcanoes, Bisoke and Karisimbi.
Magashi Camp is a new and luxurious safari camp in Akagera National Park. This luxury tented camp offers exclusive access to vast tracts of Africa's best wildlife areas, creating a unique sense of seclusion, comfort, privacy, and space. Witness a national park coming back to life, home again to lions, rhinos, and an abundance of plains game roaming over its gently rolling hills and open savannah. Watch elephants submerge in silver-blue Lake Rwanyakazinga, raising their trunks like periscopes for air. Monitor lions, leopards, and black rhinos, learning the latest in monitoring technology. Safari by boat on the lake, and perhaps enjoy catch-and-release fishing.
