Walking Among Giants
A 10-day discovery of remarkable Rwanda amid the towering peaks of the Virunga Mountains visiting the Majestic Mountain Gorillas
Rwanda is best known for three main aspects: people and culture, national parks and gorilla watching. Coming to Rwanda to see the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat is the ultimate wildlife experience for many. A small population of gorillas live in the Parc National de Volcans, nestled high up in the mountains and shrouded by mist in early morning, and Virunga National Park is the best place to see gorillas in the wild.
Rwanda is also home to the largest remaining rainforest in Africa, as well as costal shores along Lake Kivu and beaches at Gisenyi and coves at Kibuye.
Due to the endless mountains, Rwanda has earned the nick-name ‘Lane of a Thousand Hills’, however it is also worth spending time in in the capital city – Kigali.
