Rwanda holidays. Tours & holidays in 2015 & 2016


Rwanda holidays

Visiting Rwanda is a bit like doing a triathlon. It’s challenging, exciting, tiring and emotional. It also has three important aspects: people and culture, national parks and gorilla watching. It is most celebrated for its gorilla populations and strictly managed safaris in Volcanoes NP. However, Rwanda’s other two national parks are also habitat havens. It is the people and culture that will make your heart skip a beat or two, however. Read more in our Rwanda travel guide.

Gorilla Safari & the Masai Mara
Every day was fabulous always something different... travelling with like minded people was also a good thing. (more)Valerie Koppi
Gorillas!!!!!. Interacting with them was the most exceptional experience elf my life and the biggest adrenaline rush I have ever had. Its is without comparison. The Masai Mara was amazing, will decamping was a buzz and White water rafting on the Nile was an amazing experience but being close to the African people(especially the happy kids) and not isolated in 5 star resorts made the trip a once in a lifetime experience. (more)Mark Asquith
It was excellent. I would go again tomorrow... it was such a fabulous trip from the start in Kigali to the end in Nairobi. Seeing the gorillas was obviously so special and memorable and the rafting in jinja was an unexpected highlight. Also the people in my group and our fabulous exodus team who were to efficient, friendly, patient and organised. (more)Sally Knowles-Jackson

Rwanda and Uganda wildlife holiday
An excellent holiday. We loved the itinerary and Eric our guide was helpful, knowledgeable and very patient. Everything was arranged beautifully by the holiday provider in advance and we had a fantastic holiday. (more)Emma Easton
From email communication to booking to arriving to meeting our driver/guide to exploring wonderful Rwanda to meeting the mountain gorillas and many more animals to staying in comfortable places to returning to the airport, it was all just perfect and smooth. (more)Julian King
Tops!!!! No problems, no hitches, well organized, great guide! It was one of those vacations where almost every single moment is memorable. Certainly meeting the mountain gorillas is a very big deal, but I was also just driving through villages and watching warthogs dig in the grass. (more)Lori Blumenthal
From £2400 - £3500 including UK flights

Overland tour of Kenya to Rwanda, gorillas and gameparks
Memorable parts? Seeing the gorillas. Visiting the Pygmy village. Tips? Bring long trousers and T-shirts to cover up in Uganda. Pack lightly as there is laundry at the campsite. Local benefits? Yes, particularly when visiting the Pygmy village and the Kenyan school. My trip was the first 19 days of a longer 75 day tour. Whilst I did not go on this activity I know that later in the longer tour they go on a lion walk. I would urge you to research the company that runs this... (more)Genevieve Isherwood
