Volcanoes National Park
“In the heart of Central Africa, so high up that you shiver more than you sweat,” wrote the eminent primatologist Dian Fossey, “are great, old volcanoes towering almost 15,000 feet, and nearly covered with rich, green rainforest – the Virungas.”
The Volcanoes National Park fall on one side of the Virunga Massif, home to mountain gorillas, golden monkeys and much more.
Rwanda is easy to explore by car. The popular circuit between the national parks passes through magnificent scenery, with a new vista and warm smiles greeting travelers around every corner.
Culture & Heritage
Warm and friendly, Rwandans are also respectful, thoughtful and committed to the idea of progress, starting at the grass roots and running all the way to the top.
From the ancient kingdom to the modern day, creativity is something to be celebrated, whether through traditional dance, unique architecture or works of art.

The land of a thousand hills can be explored in any manner of ways – by foot, cycle, kayak and car.
For an aerial view, there’s a canopy walkway across the rainforest, helicopter tours and even tandem flights by paramotor.
