Rwanda has become a very popular destination in East Africa mainly due to Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park. Rwanda is mountainous, diverse, and just all around beautiful and your Gorilla trekking can also be combined with a visit to Nyungwe Forest, Akagera National Park as well as Lake Kivu.
Kigali, located in the centre of the country, boasts the famous Hôtel des Mille Collines which played a significant role in Rwanda’s genocide movie, Hotel Rwanda. Some of our preferred places to stay in the capital are Heaven as well as the more luxury The Retreat which has a wellness center, ideal for some pampering after a long international flight. In the direction of Lake Kivu we really like the small and rustic Paradis Malahide located on the waters edge. For Gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park there are many options of which some of our favorites are listed below. Akagera National Park and Nyungwe Forest have less choice and our preferred accommodations are Ruzizi Tented Lodge and The One&Only Nyungwe House.
