Known as the land of a thousand hills, Rwanda’s stunning scenery and warm, friendly people offer unique experiences in one of the most remarkable countries in the world. It is blessed with extraordinary biodiversity, with incredible wildlife living throughout its volcanoes, montane rainforest and sweeping plains. Travelers come from far and wide to catch a glimpse of the magnificent gorillas, yet there is so much more to see and experience.

Rwanda is a land locked country that lies just south of the Equator, in the heart of Africa. It is located east of Lake Kivu, one of the African Great Lakes and bordered by Burundi, Congo, Tanzania and Uganda. In every corner of Rwanda, you’ll find unique experiences and landscapes bursting with color, culture and natural beauty. Take a moment to travel through the country’s most captivating scenes. Thanks to the country’s biodiversity you will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience of gorilla trekking, primate walks, volcano hikes and birdwatching in Volcanoes National Park and Nyungwe Forest National Park, plus boat trips on Lake Kivu in the Rift Valley and a classic safari in search of the Big Five in low-key Akagera National Park.

When to visit Rwanda

Rwanda has a tropical climate characterized by its hilly landscapes stretching from east to west.

The best time to visit is during the drier period from June to September and December to early February when you have the best chance at spotting the country’s highlight- the mountain gorilla.

The rainy seasons, from March to May and in November are optimum times for tracking chimpanzees.
