Getting There

Flights
Nairobi in Kenya would be your entry point into East Africa from outside of Africa. From here you can get a flight to Kigali in Rwanda. Airlines that service this route include Air Burundi, Ethiopian Airlines, Kenya Airlines and South African Airways.

Land & water
Main entry points into Rwanda from other African countries include Burundi (Butare/Kayanza), Tanzania (Rusumo) and Uganda (Gatuna).

When to Go

Avoid the rains which fall from March to May and visit Rwanda during the dry season which ranges from May to September. It is easier to track mountain gorillas when it is dry.

Highlights not to Miss

Parc National Des Volcans
This national park offers the best location to track the captivating mountain gorilla in Africa. It is along the border with Congo and Uganda. There is a chain of seven volcanoes and the highest one being Karisimbi of more than 4 500 m. The slopes of these volcanoes are covered in bamboo and rainforest vegetation and where you will find the gorillas. A visit to these fascinating animals is a must for every traveler to Africa. The experience is unforgettable but getting there through these forests and to the volcanoes is not for the feint hearted but rather the curios that will go the mile.

Nyungwe Forest National Park
One of the leading attractions in Rwanda and one of the largest protected mountain rainforests in Africa, covering 970 sq km with superb scenery overlooking the forest and Lake Kivu. You can view the volcanoes of the Parc National Des Volconoes from here. Here you can view large groups of black and white Angolan colobus monkeys with up to 400 in a troop. Other primates include the chimpanzees and you can go on hikes through the forest, which boasts about 270 species of trees, other mammals and birds.
