Regions in Rwanda

As well as gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park, spot chimpanzees in beautiful Nyungwe Forest, enjoy some R&R along the shores of Lake Kivu and have your fill of museums, culture and local cuisine in Rwanda's buzzing capital, Kigali:

The Virunga Mountains are world famous for their rich biodiversity and of course the mountain gorillas found here. It is one of three places in the world where you can really get up close and see these majestic animals. There is much more to offer here than just gorillas: golden monkeys, the Buhanga Eco Park, the Musanze Caves and numerous hiking trails including a visit to the Dian Fossey tomb.
Nyungwe is surely one of the world's most beautiful and pristine mountain rain forests, it is also believed to be one of Africa's oldest. Home to habituated chimpanzees and 12 other primate species it is also a birder's paradise. There are 13 walking trails available throughout this forest ranging from two to eight hours, along with several cultural activities on offer, this is sure to satisfy both cultural and nature experiences.
Akagara is located along the border with Tanzania and combines well with Nyungwe and Volcanoes to create a great safari circuit. It is home to many large plains game species as well as species restricted to the papyrus swamps such as the Sitatunga and the much sought-after Shoebill Stork. With the recent reintroduction of lion, Akagera is set to place itself firmly on the map.
This beautiful lake is surrounded by magnificent mountains and dotted with uninhabited islands which creates stunning scenery. Lake Kivu provides the perfect place to relax and enjoy lakeside recreation. Sports and activities include fishing, kayaking, canoeing and boat rides, or simply just relaxing by the shore. Alternatively take in the busy local markets in Rubavu and the bustling border with the DRC.
Located in the heart of Rwanda, Kigali is a modern, dynamic and safe city that is well worth exploring. Whilst museums and culture fill the city, it is a thoroughly modern African capital, teeming with innovative ideas. Kigali is clean and safe, and easy to navigate.
