Arsenal fan Richard Hall won a trip to visit Rwanda after taking part in the Visit Rwanda Champion’s Challenge competition. Find out what Richard and Mara got up to during their incredible 8-day adventure.

“When I won the Visit Rwanda Champion’s Challenge, not only did I win a trip to one of the most naturally beautiful countries in the world, with its thousands of hills and almost unrivalled biodiversity, but also to one of the safest and cleanest. I had known a little about Rwanda. The sponsorship of Arsenal awakened my interest in a country I knew because of its tragic past, and as one of the few places in Africa you could visit the mountain gorillas – a dream I had had since I was a child since reading Gorillas in the Mist by Dian Fossey.” said Richard.

If you’re interested in seeing the natural world, culture and visiting some of the most majestic animals that we have on this planet, I would encourage you to Visit Rwanda. Rwanda offers a safe, secure and vibrant entry into Africa with great people and food to top it off.
