Rwanda and Tanzania

Most people planning an Africa vacation want to see the continent’s unique wildlife, from the Big 5 you can see on safari to the gorillas and other incredible species that inhabit eastern Africa’s rainforests. By visiting Rwanda and Tanzania, you can see all of these for a truly unforgettable African wildlife experience.

Rwanda is a small and mountainous country with diverse geological features, including dense rainforests, several lakes, and the stunning Great Rift Valley. The big draw are the mountain gorillas that live in Volcanoes National Park, along with chimpanzees and countless other unique creatures. Gorilla trekking in Rwanda is an experience like no other.

Tanzania is a country full of amazing landscapes, extraordinary wildlife, and fascinating cultures. Go on wildlife safaris, climb the renowned Mt. Kilimanjaro, relax on the white sandy beaches that fringe the Indian Ocean, or explore the sleepy coastal villages and explore Swahili culture. Tanzania has something for every traveler.
