Rwanda Highlights
 Parc National des Volcans PNV  (Volcanoes National Park)

The Mountain Gorillas ( "gorilla gorilla beringei") are a rare and protected species ; half of the remaining population of mountain gorillas lives on the Rwandan slopes of the Virunga Volcanoes; this is where you will be able to" meet" 7 families of "habituated" gorillas, in groups of maximum 8 people, accompanied by professional guides and trackers.

The PNV is also home to a group of delightful golden monkeys (cercopithecus  kandti) well worth a visit.

  
 Parc National de l'Akagéra (Akagera national Park)

The Akagera River is actually the highest source of the Nile!

Like a huge inland sea, it is surrounded by lovely green terraced slopes.

 Nyungwe Forest

 Butare / Nyanza

The National Museum at Butare houses an exceptional ethnographic collection: photos and articrafts present Rwanda’s evolution from pre-colonial times to the modern African nation it is today. The remarkably restored Royal Palace of Nyanza (Nyabisindu), seat of Rwanda’s feudal monarchy, is well worth a visit.
