A guide to Rwanda

From gorillas and chimpanzees to other wildlife, find out what there is to see in Rwanda. 


Primates

Sitting with a small family group of mountain gorillas is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest wildlife experiences. Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park is home to about 150 gorillas, as well as wild chimpanzees and a host of other primates, including the golden monkey in the tropical rainforest of Nyungwe.


Akagera National Park

Akagera is a relatively unvisited park located in the north-east of Rwanda along the border with Tanzania, and remains Rwanda’s only conventional safari reserve.

Within this low-lying savannah, lion, elephant, buffalo, zebra and giraffe may be spotted, while its lakes and marshes support large numbers of hippo and crocodile, as well as a multitude of water birds.  It is named after the mighty Nile’s most remote tributary, which flows along its eastern boundary and feeds into a labyrinth of lakes, the largest of which is Lake Ihema.
