Overview

​Gorilla Safari in Rwanda visiting all three of the major wildife sanctuaries in this relatively small and compacrt country. We start off with one of the best wildlife experiences on this planet, as we trek for Gorillas in the hills of Parc de Volcans. Then we drive south to the dense and abundant forests of Nyungwe, where an atonishing 13 primate speces are the main attraction. From here we head to the east of the country and the recovering park of Akagera (with support from South Africa), which is rebuilding its Lion population from the dark days of rampant poaching. Akagera Lodge has all that hsitoric charm and rough edges that you would expect in an old property;  but with its magnifcent high location with incredible views of the main lake, you would not want to miss out on an interestng stay here; a great end to your gorilla safari in Rwanda.
