Rwanda welcomed 1.3 million visitors in 2016 attracted by the incredible scenery, opportunities to visit mountain gorillas and big game safari. The recent arrival of black rhino in the country means that Rwanda is now offering one of the most comprehensive safari experiences anywhere on the African continent.

Thanks to the new route, nature lovers can access Rwanda’s diverse ecosystems in its three national parks more easily than ever before. Volcanoes National Park, along the Congolese border, is famed for its mountain gorillas but also home to the endangered golden monkey. In the east of the country, the Akagera National Park is home to all of Africa’s most famed game animals with the new black rhino arrivals in addition to elephant, African buffalo, leopard and lion.
