This one is for the Mountain Gorilla enthusiast with very limited time. Remarkable Rwanda is one of the world’s most captivating and sort after destinations. From near destruction in the tragic 1994 genocide to a never before seen reconciliation, recovery and period of peace and stability, Rwanda is now considered a leader in the region and an innovative developing country which bans plastic bottles, is the 7th safest place to walk alone at night in the world and has the world’s highest representation of women in Parliament. Home to some of the most special animal encounters on the planet you will get to trek and spend time with rare and critically endangered Mountain Gorillas and the unique and playful Golden Monkeys. To make the tour just that little bit more memorable we have a series of cultural and local experiences which often surprise as being some of the most memorable parts of a tour. Rwanda truly earns it title of being Remarkable.
