For all of you seeking a bit of travel inspiration here is a best of Rwanda guide complete with Tarzan references – enjoy!
Follow in the footsteps of Dian Fossey as you set off in search of the beautiful gorillas of Rwanda. Prepare to experience your very own version of ‘Gorillas in the Mist’ mixed with ‘Tarzan’ trekking through the verdant Volcanoes National Park accompanied by some of the best guides. Witness change and progress in action with ex-poachers now supporting gorilla conservation as porters on your foray into the unknown. As you come face to face with a silverback, looking into his eyes there will be no doubt that you’ve met mankind’s closest living relative.
After a long day trekking followed by an emotionally charged meeting with these gentle giants head back to the luxurious Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge for some much deserved rest and relaxation. If you’re one of the hirwa – meaning lucky one to those of us whose linguistic skills aren’t quite up to scratch! You might make it in time for a naming ceremony for the furry newcomers, a truly heart warming event where locals and tourists come together for an epic celebration.
You’ll not only be awe-inspired by the natural beauty and animals Rwanda offers but also by the rich cultural heritage it possesses. So leave the mountains behind and return to Kigali, the stunning capital that showcases the strength of this beautiful country, which has rebuilt itself completely after the painful events of the past.
