Why Rwanda holidays and gorilla safaris are truly unique
Nestled just south of the equator, Rwanda is commonly known as ‘Le Pays des Milles Collines’ or ‘The Land of a Thousand Hills’ and mystifies with its undulating luscious mountains and chain of seven volcanoes that punctuate Central Africa’s landscape. Although primarily known for its gorilla trekking and safaris, offering one of the most emotional and spellbinding wildlife experiences known to man, Rwanda holidays offer much more to the intrepid traveller from tracking chimpanzees to climbing volcanic peaks.
With mountain gorillas being a critically endangered species it is essential every effort is made to secure their future. Eco tourism is a vital part of a successful drive towards saving both the gorillas and their habitat.
