Rwanda, landlocked republic lying south of the Equator in east-central Africa. Known for its breathtaking scenery, Rwanda is often referred to as le pays des mille collines (French: “land of a thousand hills”). The capital is Kigali, located in the center of the country on the Ruganwa River.

 In the space of a week, it’s possible to experience an extraordinary range of wildlife and landscapes thanks to the country’s relatively small size and biodiversity.

 

Tour Details

Rwanda is nicknamed the “Land of a Thousand Hills” for a reason. Its landscape doesn’t stop rolling, and the hills are dotted with plunging ravines, waterfalls, and ancient forests. Rwanda is also one of the only places on earth where travelers can trek among 13 species of primates, including the world-famous mountain gorillas and the rare golden monkey.

With a serene and modern capital city and excellent national park infrastructure, the country’s tumultuous past can feel worlds away—for travelers interested in learning more about Rwanda’s somber history and honoring the victims of genocide, there are many opportunities in Kigali and beyond. 

Rwanda has a tropical climate, meaning there’s a chance of rain no matter what time of year you visit. There are technically “dry” and “wet” seasons—which unsurprisingly align with the high and low seasons for tourism. Rwanda can be visited year-round, but the best time for gorilla trekking is during the short dry season from December-February, or the long dry season lasting from June-September. You may need to procure a permit further in advance, but you’ll appreciate the mud-free trails.
