Popular Routes – Rwanda
Popular Routes Where Wildlife Viewing Is a Major Part of the Tour
Rwanda is a very small country with just a few parks and the scenic Lake Kivu. If you are visiting only Rwanda, there is one obvious loop to follow taking in Nyungwe Forest National Park and Volcanoes National Park via Lake Kivu. This loop can be done in both directions. The only savannah reserve, Akagera National Park, doesn’t fit into this loop. It can be visited first, or at the end, as a separate side trip from Kigali.
The Wildlife Circuit (1 to 2 weeks)
After arriving at Kigali International Airport, you can spend the night in Kigali, the small capital city straddling several hills and valleys. The genocide memorial and a bustling market are just some of the activities on offer.
