An adventure safari in Rwanda
Rwanda is a great destination for adventurous travellers. Gorilla tracking in the Virunga mountains is one of the world’s most thrilling - and physically demanding - wildlife encounters. More hardcore still are the steep day or overnight hikes to four of the volcanic Virunga peaks, most notably the 4,507m Mount Karisimbi, which is not only the tallest point in Rwanda but also the sixth-highest mountain in Africa, and the 3,711m Mount Bisoke, which is topped by a beautiful crater lake and slopes swathed in giant lobelias. A diverse selection of hiking trails also traverses the densely forested slopes Nyungwe National Park, while Akagera National Park ranks among Africa’s least crowded Big Fave safari destinations.
