RWANDA

The future of Africa
Cleanest and safest country in Africa!

Why Rwanda?

African Travels offers truely unique experiences in Rwanda. Together with our local partner, our goal is to re-invest and create 1000 financially self dependent families in Rwanda.

Nearly all of Rwanda’s tours and safaris revolve around gorilla trekking in the fabled Volcanoes National Park but because of the country’s close geographical and ecological ties with neighbouring Uganda, many of Rwanda’s tours encompass aspects of both countries. Our selection of top Rwanda tours and safaris also include combinations with some of Tanzania and Kenya’s most popular destinations: why not combine a Rwanda gorilla trek with the Masai Mara, Serengeti or even the Spice Island of Zanzibar!

Rwanda is not just all about tracking mountain gorillas however; other great wildlife destinations such as the primate-packed Nyungwe Forest National Park offer fantastic chimpanzee and birding safaris that combine well with a Volcanoes National Park gorilla trek.

Best time to travel to Rwanda

Eventhough one can visit the country of Rwanda throughout the year, it is still best to travel in between the two rainy seasons. The longest rain period mostly lasts from March until May. The shorter rainy season takes place in November. During these rainy seasons, the mountain gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park may be very difficult due to many slippery paths.

The July and August are therefore a very good period to visit Rwanda. The temperature is almost the same throughout the year, about 26 degrees celcius. Keep in mind that the nights on the mountains in Volcanoes National Park can get very cold and humid. 

Best time to travel

July and August are excellent. However, December till mid February are less busy.

Rainy season

November and March till May are the rainy months. Gorilla trekkings will be very slippery and muddy during these months and roads very rough.

National parks & highlights

Explore Rwanda

Rwanda is much more than a gorilla destination. The country has the active traveler and the cultural visitor plenty to offer!
