Also known as Le Pays des Mille Collines (Land of a Thousand Hills) thanks to the endless mountains in this scenically stunning little country.
Nowhere are the mountains more majestic than the Virunga volcanoes in the northwest, and hidden among the bamboo forests are some of the world’s last remaining mountain gorillas. For a change of scene, the shores of Lake Kivu conceal some of the best inland beaches on the continent, while Nyungwe Forest National Park protects extensive tracts of montane rainforest, and is home to many primates.
When to visit
The best time to visit Rwanda is during the dry seasons from June to September and December to February. These months offer pleasant weather, ideal for outdoor activities and wildlife encounters, including gorilla trekking. Birdwatching is good during the wetter months of March to May and October to November. Consider regional variations and consult local operators for accurate planning.
