Adventure with us on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in the breathtaking landscapes of Rwanda, to discover wild nature together with a group of like-minded explorers, all with one and the same mission: truly explore.
Meet your team:
What will we experience?
Starting off with our arrival in the capital Kigali, we will start with an immersive experience right off the bat. We will learn about Rwanda's past and present: it's dark and bright sides. Learn how to do traditional Rwandan weaving at a class to empower women and their culture - one of the things we always try to integrate into our tris to create lasting and positive change through tourism.
- Journey deep into the heart of Rwanda and come face-to-face with Africa's legendary big five on Safari at Akagera National Park. The breathtaking savannahs and forests of the park are home to elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards and buffaloes. Let the thrill of the wild take over as you embark on an unforgettable safari adventure and witness these incredible creatures in their natural habitat
- Delight in the tranquility and beauty of Lake Ihema with a safari boat tour. As you glide across the glistening waters, watch in awe as herds of hippos bask in the sun and birds soar through the sky, and perhaps even see elephants roam the river banks. Lose yourself in the serenity of this natural wonderland.
- Prepare to be amazed by the stunning Volcanoes National Park, home to Rwanda's famous and unfortunately endangered Mountain Gorillas. Trek through lush forests and rugged terrain, breathing in the fresh mountain air and immersing yourself in the wild nature. As you come face-to-face with these gentle giants, you'll feel a connection to nature that's both powerful and humbling.
- Experience the wonder of golden monkey trekking, an exclusive and unique adventure that can only be found in Volcanoes National Park. Follow expert guides as they lead you through dense bamboo forests, where you'll encounter these rare and beautiful creatures in the environment they belong to. With their stunning golden fur and playful personalities, these monkeys are sure to leave you enchanted.
- Take a walk on the wild side with a canopy walk between the treetops of Nyungwe Forest. Suspended high above the forest floor, this thrilling adventure will leave you breathless as you take in panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. This is the perfect opportunity to connect with nature and witness the majesty of the forest from a whole new perspective.
- Get ready for the ultimate adventure as you embark on a Chimpanzee trekking adventure. You will get to meet the animals that are closest to us: our genetic cousins. As you observe their playful antics and watch them interact in their natural habitat, maybe, you'll find a piece of yourself in our similarities. This is an experience that goes under the skin.
