Famed for its Mt. gorillas, Rwanda is a country of ever changing landscapes and friendly people. It is a country full of surprises.

For an authentic experience of a Rwanda safari & gorilla tracking, the expert guides and privileged access provided by Select Vacations Africa are essential. We can offer luxury holidays in Rwanda with tailor-made itineraries.

Perhaps most surprising of all is the beauty of the country. With much more to offer than gorilla trekking, Rwanda is a land locked gem just half the size of Scotland. It is spectacular to behold and more than worthy of its epithet of the land of a thousand hills, Mille Collines. Misty, moody rainforest in the south gives rise to lushly forested volcanoes and bamboo in the north. Dugout canoes ply the tranquil waters of Lake Kivu in the west and undulating grass plains of Akagera in the east are interspersed with light acacia woodlands.

A Rwanda safari will introduce you to its lovely people who are wonderfully friendly. They have courage and warmth and yet there is an innocence to them that is not always so evident in other parts of Africa.

Every successful gorilla tracking safari in Rwanda brings a surprise. No matter what you are told beforehand, little can prepare you for the privilege – their eyes are so compelling, soft and brown, full of curious gentleness, inquisitive yet also accepting. As Dian Fossey said in ‘Gorillas in the Mist’, “The expression in his eyes was unfathomable. Spellbound I returned his gaze – a gaze that seemed to combine elements of enquiry and acceptance.”

At Select Vacations, a safari in Africa is individually tailored to suit your needs and timescales. However, as a guide, a 4 day Rwanda gorilla tracking will cost from £2,715 per person based on two adults sharing.

    If asked to identify the country that has one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa, a health insurance system that is the envy of the continent, with plummeting child mortality rates, and more women in Parliament than any other country in the world due to its emphasis on gender equality, few would dare to suggest Rwanda as the answer. Yet this tiny country is brimming with surprises, and seems to revel in confounding expectations.
