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.

With its bustling markets that seemingly organically intertwined through the streets, if you have the energy, a tour through the vibrant city is also highly recommended.

Volcanoes National Park

Volcanoes National Park

The steep slopes that make up the impressive 160 km² of rainforest have been dubbed Volcanoes National Park and rightly so. This National Park is home to 5 of the 8 volcanoes located in the Virunga mountains. As such, this is the perfect environment for mountain gorillas who have long called this part of Rwanda home. If you’re looking for an epic adventure to conquer your bucket list, this is where you’ll find it.

Mountain Gorillas

Mountain Gorillas

The uncontested highlight of this itinerary is of course the endangered mountain gorillas that call Volcanoes National Park home. Trekking with mountain gorillas is one of the most surreal and unforgettable experiences you can have throughout Africa. So if you’re looking for an experience that will stick with you and surely be shared for years to come, trekking with these majestic creatures is sure to hit the spot.
