Many years since the tragic genocide, Rwanda is a country transformed by a collective spirit of reconciliation, reconstruction and optimism. Rwanda is easy to get around by road and all the national parks and wildlife reserves are within a manageable driving distance from Kigali. Rwanda’s hotels are clean but quite basic. The standards of food and service can be low, as many staff are new to tourism. However, we believe that the Rwanda’s wildlife and scenery more than compensate for the lack of facilities.
From tracking gorillas and chimpanzees to exploring the national parks, taking canopy walks and understanding Rwanda’s history and culture, Rwanda itself has much to offer adventurous travellers. A visit to Rwanda can also be easily combined with Kenya, as Nairobi is a short flight away.

We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
