Rwanda – Land of a Thousand Hills
Known as the land of a thousand hills, the stunning scenery, warm & friendly people have enabled Adventure Consults offer unique Safari experiences to one of the most remarkable countries in the world – Rwanda! Adventure Consults trips cover Rwanda’s extraordinary biodiversity, with incredible wildlife living throughout its volcanoes, montane rainforest and sweeping plains.
Rwanda is a lush country of endless mountains and stunning scenery, and nowhere are the mountains more majestic than the peaks of the Virunga Volcanoes in the far North Western Rwanda. In Parc National Des Volcans (PNV), the volcanoes form a natural frontier with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Uganda and hidden among the bamboo and dense jungle of their forbidding slopes are some of the world’s last remaining mountain gorillas. It is the opportunity to encounter with these contemplative creatures at close quarters that continues to draw visitors to Rwanda.
There’s more to Rwanda than just gorillas; On the shores of Lake Kivu are some of the best inland beaches on the continent. Deep in the southwest, Nyungwe Forest is the most extensive montane rainforest in the region that is home to many primates including the world’s largest troops of Black and White Colobus Monkeys and Chimpanzees.
Rwanda is all too often associated with the horrific events that unfolded in 1994 with the genocide of almost a million people. The country has taken giant strides towards recovery, forgiveness, and redemption. A city tour of modern and clean Kigali will take you to the genocide museum, which does a magnificent job explaining the history of the civil war and attempts to put a face on the countless lost.
