New tour launch: RWANDA ~ Gorillas and the Renaissance of a Country

RWANDA ~ Gorillas and the Renaissance of a Country
This small country, known as the land of a thousand hills, still evokes memories of the genocide committed during the 1990s. Join us as we discover the resurgence of one of Africa’s hidden jewels and visit the original ‘Gorillas in the Mist’ of Dian Fossey. We travel throughout the country, staying in its vibrant capital, Kigali, three National Parks and on the shore of one of Africa’s Great Lakes.

Gorilla permit numbers are restricted and all bookings for this tour are subject to availability checks.
