The Republic of Rwanda is, geographically, a very small African country, comprising of about Virunga Volcanoes26,000 square kilometers in size. Yet, it is a richly endowed country with an amazing variety and diversity of natural beauty, wildlife species, and diverse topographic sceneries that are both panoramic and a beauty to the beholder. It is the home of the rare mountain gorillas, huge troops of chimpanzees, the rare but cute Golden Monkeys, 13 different species of Monkeys, savannah wildlife species, over 400 bird species, numerous lakes and rivers, unaccountable number of hills, and the majestic dormant volcanic mountains, some of them towering over 4,500 meters above sea level.

Best time to visit Rwanda

Rwanda, as with Uganda, is a year round destination. Wet seasons are similar running between March and May and October and November. These are still good times for gorilla trekking all be it conditions being slightly more slippery underfoot. At World Primate Safaris we prefer to avoid the busy holiday months and liek to travel in either February or September which provide ideal conditions for gorilla tracking and are less busy.

Access to Rwanda

Rwanda is mainly accessible via Nairobi. Nairobi is the main hub for Eastern Africa and therefore Rwanda is accessible by most of the main airlines (via Nairobi) including Kenya Airways, British Airways and South African Airways
