Rwanda is an enchanting country in Africa boasting natural beauty in abundance, from pristine lakes and tropical rainforests to exotic flora and volcanic peaks. Rwanda is associated with the critically endangered mountain gorilla… The Volcanos National Park in north western Rwanda is the world’s most popular mountain gorilla sanctuary; there are less than 700 of this species left in the world, and this incredible park allows you to catch a glimpse of them.
Another amazing wildlife attraction in Rwanda is the Nyungwe National Park, a mountainous rainforest reserve nestled amidst tea plantations. This beautiful park offers adventures such as nature trails, the first tree top forest canopy walk in East Africa, bird watching, primate viewing, and chimpanzee tracking. Brightsun Travel offers great value holiday packages to Rwanda, allowing you to plan an adventurous trip here with once-in-a-lifetime wildlife encounters.
Once you’ve explored the wonderful nature and wildlife of Rwanda, you can make a start on some sightseeing to learn about the country’s cultural heritage. Kigali, the capital of Rwanda is a good place to start your exploration, home to the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre - the final resting place of over 250,000 victims who lost their lives during the Rwandan Genocide in 1994. There’s a museum here which offers a heart-breaking insight into this tragic event.
