Rwanda’s World Heritage site, the Albertine Rift is one Africa’s most biodiverse regions. The Virungas massif is a staggeringly beautiful rainforest home to half the population of the world’s Mountain Gorillas, an iconic endangered species. With surrounding views of the volcanic peaks, only a handful of travelers are permitted to trek into the wilderness to seek out habituated groups of Gorilla families, about 604 individuals, amongst other primate species accompanied by our experienced local rangers who are residents and accredited guides exclusively employed by the Volcanoes National Park.
“To someone who has never been to Rwanda, and within an-hour-and-half of entering the forest on their first morning, being in the midst of a Gorilla family... it’s truly the thrill of a lifetime.”
The Nyungwe Forest is rich with flora that has thrived for millions of years, remaining within the lush even through the Ice Age. In the heart of magical Rwanda, this biodiverse region is home to 13 primate species including the rare Mangabey monkey, lively Chimps, delicate orchids and exotic birds and butterflies.

Located on a high altitude, just south of the Equator, Rwanda offers a temperate tropical climate. With the lush rainforests intermittent light rainfall occurs throughout the year in warm weather. The heavy wet season occurs from March to May and October to November. June to September and the festive season from December to February are drier and offer splendid viewing conditions.
