About Rwanda

Rwanda is an East African country, one among many countries in Africa that have had some of the most grotesque and sad histories, but that is a thing of the past now. Rwanda has more than made up for its gruesome past through creating a highly vibrant tourism industry that has attracted tourism activity from allover the world. Rwanda has a variety of activities to offer to tourists, since its also home to the nearly extinct mountain gorilla species. Most of Rwanda's tourism is dominated by gorilla trekking, an activity that is truly remarkable and that has earned its reputation as one of the must-do adventures on any escapade to Africa! A permit to track gorillas in Rwanda goes for USD 750 for non-Rwandese (peanuts compared to the gorilla experience, right?) and USD 350 for foreign Rwandese. There is so much more to discover in Rwanda, from the Genocide Memorial, the Chimapanzees in Nyungwe forest, the canopy walk and many others.

Things to do

Trekking Golden Monkey happens in Volcanoes National Park. Typically, a guide will drive to Kinigi headquarters in the morning because trekking takes place only once a day. Gazing at these striking primates are a treat for the eyes. With their bright orange fur contrasting the green rainforests of the Virunga Mountains – it's a photographer's dream!

These Monkeys can be found in Nyungwe Forest. Their second name is Ruwenzori Colobus and live within sizable groups (one of the habituated troops has more than 200 individuals). An encounter with Colobus Monkeys in Rwanda often exceeds sightings anywhere elsewhere in Africa.
