Luxury Vacations in Rwanda

Welcome to the “land of a thousand hills,” where seemingly limitless mountain peaks meet rugged, wild terrain to provide the backdrop for some of the best mountain gorilla-spotting opportunities in Africa.

Despite the country’s painful and well-notorised past, Rwanda today has become a welcoming and friendly destination, with animal-spotting opportunities and fabulous safaris acting as one of the nation’s main draws.

Landlocked between the Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Uganda, and Burundi, Rwanda’s jungle climate lends itself to flourishing wildlife and nature; with world-famous gorilla and chimpanzee sanctuaries scattered across the country.

Additionally, there are opportunities to see the magnificent endangered mountain gorillas roaming freely around the jungle at the country’s two most famous national parks, the Parc National Nyungwe Forest and the Akagera National Park, which is also home to big game including lions, giraffes and elephants.

Spot these majestic creatures from the comfort of a luxurious lodge, or take a helicopter tour of the park and see Rwanda’s rolling countryside unfold from a whole different viewpoint.

Away from the wildlife lakeside beaches, the buzzing capital of Kigali, and the beguiling Musanze caves are all well worth a visit. For relaxation after a busy day there’s a plethora of resorts on the shores of Lake Kivu. Here you’ll find your own stretch of sand, food prepared with the best local ingredients and unparalleled lake views.

From jungle to lakeside beaches, the buzzing capital of Kigali to the beguiling Musanze caves, Rwanda bursts with exciting options.
