Reborn after being torn apart by the dark events of 1994, Rwanda is a country now brimming with optimism and beauty. Its volcanic north hides endangered mountain gorillas, the highlight of any trip here.
With over a dozen habituated families of these gorillas surviving in the Virunga Massif, this is arguably the best place in Africa to see them. A handful of beautifully crafted lodges sit at the foot of the volcanoes.
Away from the gorillas, Rwanda hides a surprising amount. In the east, Akagera is a resurgent national park, flourishing under the stewardship of African Parks and home to a wealth of wildlife. Whilst in the south, Nyungwe Forest offers the chance to trek for chimpanzees.
