A Rwandan adventure takes you into a land that rarely sees Western eyes, from gorilla troops to volcanic peaks, chimpanzees to Intore dance ceremonies. Handcrafted for active travelers, this 11-day Rwanda safari itinerary connects the country’s famous and unknown highlights, including four days following the Congo Nile Trail by bicycle and kayak. It is more than a journey into an untouched world; it is a connection with a culture and a country that is as charming as it is unique.
