What will you experience?



The capital city of Rwanda, Kigali is the beginning of your epic journey into Rwanda’s vast mountain ranges. Here you will enjoy a quick stopover with enough time to replenish and refresh, all the while making the most of your stay.

Rwanda is a country with a turbulent past, and to fully appreciate where the country and its people are today, one needs to understand its history. A visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial is a must for any traveler to the capital. It is an in-depth and emotional journey, but also an inspiration that peace can be achieved no matter how dark the beginning is.

Akagera National Park

Akagera National Park

Akagera National Park is a miraculous story of revitalisation and is now home to a variety of animals, including the big five. In 2015, lions were reintroduced from South Africa. With rhino being introduced in 2017 and again in 2021.

Your stay is at the luxurious Magashi Camp, over looking Lake Rwanyakazinga. Go on game drive and explore diverse habitats for the elusive leopard, or cruise on the lake for a unique perspective.

For the more curious, join the African Parks ranger team to learn more about how they monitor and collect data to protect this unique ecosystem. And spend a day with the conservation team as they move around the park monitoring key animal species.

Volcanoes National Park

Volcanoes National Park

Located in the northwest of Rwanda, Volcanoes National Park protects not just the mountain gorillas who inhabit these rugged landscapes, but also the magnificent mountain ranges.

The wildlife encounter with the mountain gorillas is undoubtedly life-changing. We understand the urge to document this experience with photos and yes instagram videos. But PLEASE take your time to absorb the experience, this hour long encounter will humble and change you forever.

After your gorilla trek, Bisate Lodge offers an array of adventure activities like:
a golden monkey trek; hike to Diane Fossey’s grave; a unique tour of the newly developed eco-villages; nursery visit and tree planting
