Visit the wonderful wildlife

When it comes to wildlife, you will not be disappointed by the variety and extraordinary biodiversity that this place has to offer. Wherever you turn you will witness wildlife living throughout the captivating rainforests and volcanoes.

Rwanda is renowned for homing a whole host of monkeys, from chimpanzees to baboons and bushbabies. However, the most common monkey that tourists travel to this African wonderland to see is gorillas in the Volcanoes National Park. Witnessing gorillas go about their daily lives in their natural habitat is an unforgettable and life-changing experience. Expert guides lead small groups of tourists up bamboo-covered slopes to spend some valuable and inspiring moments just a few feet away from these incredible animals.

If you’re an avid birdwatcher, then Rwanda is the perfect place for you as it has one of the highest bird counts in the whole of Africa, despite being the one of the smallest countries in the continent. Nyungwe and Akagera National Parks are the main and prime birdwatching areas, although captivating sightings are very common across the entire country.

Rwanda is fast becoming a top safari destination in Africa with the continent’s largest protected wetland located in the Akagera National Park. The reintroduction of lions and rhinos in recent times has meant that Rwanda is now home to the Big Five.

It’s a tourist hotspot for those exploring Rwanda to pay a visit to one of the several tea factories that are open to the public. Visitors get an in-depth insight into how tea is harvested and processed in this beautiful country.

If you are more of a coffee drinker then fear not, as there are around 450,000 small growers that produce delicious coffee beans across Rwanda. Again, tourists can go on tours around farmers’ cooperatives and washing stations to witness and understand the process of growing coffee through the year.
