Why visit Rwanda? What to see in Rwanda

“Rwanda is a beautiful little country most known for the genocide of 1994. The good news is that the country is way beyond recovery from its past. And is now very safe and ready to welcome tourists.

Gorillas in Rwanda are one of the major attractions on the continent. So, trekking gorillas is a major highlight for most people who come for Rwanda tours. However, there is a lot more to do on a  Rwanda  Safari than just gorillas.

Other attractions include; golden monkey treks and climbing volcanoes.  Nyungwe Forest National Park has 13 different primate species including chimpanzees. Akagera National Park is Rwanda’s only savanna park in Rwanda and it offers that wilderness experience

Best Time to Visit Rwanda

Rwanda safaris and Rwanda Tours”  are generally done throughout the year. Equally important, the best time according to us is when the rains are less or during the dry season. Besides when it’s easy to hike and chimpanzees tend to be much on the ground.

Most people come to do Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda. Rains and wet weather can make it a challenge to trek mountain gorillas that’s during March, April, October to November. Although your safari in Rwanda and Gorilla trekking in Rwanda can be done all year long.

We recommend you come in the dry season in January, June, July, August and December. Likewise, the driest months (June to August) are best for the Rwandan gorilla trekking and Rwanda safari. And these months are also recommended for hiking in Nyungwe Forest National Park.

Moreover chimpanzee trekking in Rwanda, It’s easy to see chimps during the wet season. Likewise, the availability of forest fruits is plenty but during the dry season. They walk deeper into the jungle so it becomes difficult to follow them.

Now the choice is yours to choose what time you want to do your Safari in Rwanda. Besides, if you have nice hiking boots, a good waterproof jacket and a Laba Africa Expeditions  guide, you’re good to go at all times
