Discerning Rwanda Safari Trips Experiences
In the heart of Africa lies the breathtaking wilderness of Rwanda (reasons to visit), a country that experienced a brilliant transformation since the 1990s to become an emerging travel destination. Bordered by Tanzania, Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Burundi, Rwanda possesses a variety of habitats that support creatures large and small. Tourism has become a key factor in the country’s development, and Rwanda’s people are diligently working to find innovative ways to protect their natural and cultural resources while providing economic opportunities for now and for the future.

AfricanMecca Safaris invites you to explore Rwanda and discover the country’s true character. Our wildlife safaris take you to the country’s famed national parks: the forests of Volcanoes and Nyungwe for a primate safari experience, and the savannah plains of Akagera, where you can see iconic African species such as elephants, giraffes, rhinos, hippos, zebras, elands, buffaloes, and other herbivores that are carefully watched by lions, leopards, hyenas, and other ferocious predators. Approximately 40 percent of Africa’s mammal species can be found in Rwanda, more than 400 in all.

AfricanMecca will develop a perfect blend of activities to bring you up close to the wildlife species that are often on the must-see list in Africa. If primates are at the top of your list, Rwanda is the place for your dream tour of the African jungles. It is one of only three countries on the planet where you can see mountain gorillas in their natural habitat—the dense forests of Volcanoes National Park. Aside from this primate preserve, Nyungwe National Park is a forested home to chimpanzees, golden monkeys, blue monkeys, grey-faced mangabeys, and more.

Our Rwanda Gorilla, Chimpanzee, and Primate Safaris take you on treks to locate these amazing animals and spend time observing their natural behaviors.

In addition to the primates, Rwanda offers guests unparalleled birdwatching experiences. The country is home to more than 650 species of avifauna, including some that are endemic to the Virunga and Rwenzori mountains. From the rainforest canopy of Volcanoes and Nyungwe national parks to the savannah plains and wetlands of Akagera National Park and the shores of Lake Kivu, the beautifully colored feathered inhabitants of Rwanda are always close at hand, and their distinct melodies and calls can always be heard. A birding safari in Rwanda is certain to be one of your most memorable African holiday experiences. Thanks to the efforts of local communities who have partnered with like-minded organizations to find sustainable ways to protect both flora and fauna, our guests are able to immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Rwanda.

A Rwanda Cultural Safari with AfricanMecca allows you to personally meet villagers of the Tutsi, Hutu, and Twa people, the three primary cultural groups in the country. Rwandans are known for their hospitality, warmth, and gracious character, and they always welcome an opportunity to share their traditions with our guests. Our cultural tours take you into local villages where you can sample Rwandan food, participate in arts and crafts, witness tribal ceremonies, watch dance and drumming performances, and even meet with elders to learn their ancient techniques for making medicines. Visiting local schools and community projects will give you insight into how tourism revenue is helping to build a bright future for the people of Rwanda while protecting its magnificent wildlife.

AfricanMecca also offers safaris that encompass all of your favorite activities, such as our Rwanda Hiking and Trekking Safari. Volcanoes and Nyungwe national parks both have well-developed networks of trails that allow our guests to enjoy the ultimate adventure vacation in the forests of Central-East Africa. Trails range from leisurely strolls below the rainforest canopy to multi-day treks to the summit of a volcanic mountain. You can even step back in time and role-play being a Rwandan king or discovering the source of the mighty Nile River.

The country is a photographer’s paradise, and our Rwanda Photo Safaris are tailored to your experience level and desired subject matter. Let our guide take you to the best vantage point, where our professional photography instructor will guide you in the elements of lighting, composition, aperture, shutter speed, and much more. You may want to create a partially blurred image that documents the swiftness of a lioness chasing her prey, or perhaps use depth of field to highlight the details of a silverback mountain gorilla or chimp. Every aspect of a Rwanda Photo Safari with AfricanMecca is intended to enhance your ability to take home photographs that are not just ordinary snapshots, but rather intensely powerful images that tell the story of your personal experience in Rwanda.

If a high-end safari is your idea of heaven, we suggest an upscale Luxury Safari in Rwanda. We will recommend the most opulent and exclusive accommodations in exquisite settings—the type designed for a small number of guests so that your every need is met with personalized and discreet service. Bush activities and tours are tailored to your premier desires and schedule, and your personal guide takes you to some of the best locations for wildlife viewing, hiking, and many other private experiences!

The cultures, history, geology, and biodiversity of Rwanda make it an exceptional place for families. Parents can explore the rainforest in search of mountain gorillas while their children are entertained by local staff who teach them about pottery, tracking, and other local traditions. Our Family Safaris in Rwanda will help ensure a memorable experience that you and your children will share for a lifetime. Meanwhile, you can rest assured that AfricanMecca will recommend child-friendly accommodations and manage the details of activities that will meet your children’s needs and interests.

Rwanda is known as the “Land of a Thousand Hills” and is considered one of the most romantic destinations in Centra-East Africa. What better place to exchange wedding vows than in the midst of a rainforest, on the beaches of Lake Kivu, on a coffee plantation, or in the metropolitan setting of Kigali. However you envision your marriage trip, simply share your dream with an AfricanMecca planner and we will manage every detail to create the perfect Wedding Safari in Rwanda. After your nuptials, whether exchanged in Africa or elsewhere, escape on a Honeymoon Safari with an itinerary tailored to the personalities of you and your partner. Your post-wedding getaway can be private and intimate, adventurous and thrill-seeking, or perhaps a combination of the two. You can spend your days in an African rainforest listening to the calls of primates and birds, lounging on the Kivu shore, or at a camp on the savannah plains, where the hunter-prey story unfolds before your very eyes.

Our goal at AfricanMecca Safaris is to exceed your every expectation, and our Private and Custom Tailor-Made Safaris in Rwanda will meet the needs of even the most discerning guests. We can combine aspects of our other African safari itineraries or develop a bespoke vacation uniquely tailored to you. Intimate wilderness encounters, dedicated transfer services, top-notch facilities and amenities, and crafted private tours where possible are just some of the features of our custom trips.
