Frequently Asked Questions

The best time to visit Rwanda depends entirely on what you wish to experience, as it’s a year-round destination. However, if you’re planning your luxury Rwanda safari around gorilla and chimpanzee trekking, then you should aim to visit during the dry seasons as trekking conditions are easier. The long dry seson is from June to September, and the short dry season is from January to February. Don’t worry, though, as our Travel Experts will help you decide on the best time for the experiences you wish to have.

There are so many excellent things to do and see in this country. Rwanda safaris are exciting not only for the gorilla and chimpanzee trekking but for the myriad of other wildlife calling it home, as well as its diverse landscapes and fascinating cultures. Here are some of the best things to do in Rwanda. 

Gorilla trekking: The most famous activity in Rwanda, gorilla safaris, is when you hike through the forested slopes to meet the gorilla families.

Hiking and nature walks in Volcanoes National Park: Volcanoes National Park is the setting of the famous “Gorillas in the Mist” book and film. And walking through the park will inspire you to write your own story, thanks to its rich biodiversity! 

Chimpanzee trekking in Nyungwe Forest National Park: This national park is a tropical rainforest where you can see chimpanzees and plenty of other primates in their natural habitat. 

Lake Kivu: With its surrounding tea plantations and sandy shores, predator-free Lake Kivu is one of the most beautiful lakes in Africa. 

Culture, cuisine and coffee: Rwanda is a hotspot for coffee lovers and foodies, and you can explore the plantations, many restaurants, and cultural gems for days on end.

Big 5 safari in Akagera National Park: Africa’s largest protected wetland and remaining refuge for savannah-adapted species in Rwanda, this Akagera National Park is a safari mecca. 

Kigali: The capital of Rwanda and one of the safest African cities, Kigali is a bustling entertainment hub with plenty of museums, markets, restaurants, culture, and more to explore.

it’s important to note that children under 15 are not permitted on gorilla treks. A gorilla-trekking permit is also essential.

It all depends on your fitness level. You will be grouped accordingly with fellow trekkers to embark on either short, medium, or long treks. This also depends on the location of the gorillas. A trekking expedition can take from one to three hours, sometimes longer.
