When we talk about ‘the best’ of Rwanda, we don’t only mean the most sumptuous lodges with wine cellars, serene spas, helipads or heated private plunge pools. We also mean the best wildlife viewing, incredible scenery, exciting activities and more unusual experiences like markets, memorials and cultural touchpoints.
Starting in Kigali’s most sought-after boutique hotel, you get to explore this fascinating city that balances the past, present and future with a can-do attitude from its citizens. Next, Akagera National Park and its consummate conservation success story beckon. Volcanoes National Park is another high point thanks to a growing population of once highly-threatened mountain gorillas. Then you’re whisked to the secret gem of Nyungwe Forest National Park and the glittering shore of Lake Kivu.
