Rwanda vacation

In addition to exporting coffee and tea, this developing country is benefiting from fast-growing tourism. Rwanda has great lakes, mountains, savanna and a huge number of hippos. But the mountain gorilla is the big attraction. This highly endangered specie has suffered great losses in the past partly because of poaching and the genocide in the 90s, but now numbers are slowly increasing.

Rwanda has chosen to position itself as a high-end travel destination. By avoiding the backpackers and attracting fewer, money-spending tourists, the impact is lower and more money can be spent on reservation. If you plan on taking a tour, make sure your guide is respectful towards the animals by not letting you go anywhere near them. Make a conscious decision and admire these beautiful creatures from afar!

We had an excellent 5 day experience, first seeing the gorillas in Bwindi, and then having some fun game drives in Queen Elizabeth. My absolute favorite part was the chimp trekking in the gorge. Our driver was professional and friendly, our accommodations were comfortable, and the food was fantastic! Thank you for a great time!

An amazing experience. Booked a 5 day trip with Hajarah and he was very helpful. Already from the airport pick-up I was warmly welcomed by Katie and Alex, they have done everything to make it as pleasant as possible for my trip. Nothing was too much and they even made proposals. The lodges of Bwindi and Queen Elizabeth were well cared for with excellent meals. Friendly and helpful staff. The visit to the gorillas / chimpanzee, game drive and everything else was anamazing experience in this beautiful country.
