Rwanda excels in intimate wildlife encounters; the rhythmic pounding of a silverback beating his chest, playful chimpanzees digging with sticks, a dozen monkey species swinging past your lodge, wild mountain gorillas returning your gaze. This handcrafted safari makes these natural wonders accessible to senior travelers, combining the country’s highlights with its best lodges and finest guides. Enchanting and exclusive, it’s a week-long journey into the heart of Africa.
Kigali – The Tranquility of Rwanda’s Capital
The tranquility of Kigali surprises most visitors. Then again, much of Rwanda comes as a surprise. This is a country that’s spotlessly clean, going as far as making plastic bags illegal. Broad tree-lined streets could come from a Parisian suburb; ebullient welcomes greet you at every establishment, and vistas are dominated by green colors. Feeling more like a village than a capital, Kigali is an indelibly relaxed city to start any vacation. You’ll be greeted at the airport and transferred to your comfortable hotel for your first night in the heart of the country.
