She longed to travel to Africa, specifically Rwanda where she discovered a pearl on the continent. Known for its rolling hills full of green vegetation and beautiful lakes and jungles, Rwanda is a safe, clean, and vibrant country where the resiliency of the people and communities is felt ever since the devastating 20th century genocide. Rwanda has reached a point of political stability and wishes to put itself on the international map as a tourist-friendly location that offers a wide range of amazing activities.

GOOD TO KNOW

  • We used a local travel agent for our safari trip that we had found through internet search. They were great. Everything was perfectly organized. They were serious, one time and all activities were safely planed.
  • We also had an amazing reliable friendly and knowledgeable guide called Patrick. we would like to share his contact info as we highly recommend him www.rwasaga.com
  • Mountain gorillas can only be found in 3 countries on the planet: Uganda, Rwanda, and Democratic Republic of Congo. These three countries share the Volcano Park. There are 20 families in total and only 800 mountain gorillas in the world. We saw the Muhoza gorilla family which is led by the largest silverback in the world.
