Rwanda Honeymoon

Rwanda would have to rank as a pretty offbeat choice for a honeymoon or romantic holiday destination. That said, active outdoors-oriented couples might find it an ideal place to combine activities such as gorilla tracking, mountain hiking and game drives.

While Rwanda has a strong sense of adventure, it also has a high level of luxury. In that sense, it’s a true safari destination. Couples may cuddle up in wonderfully private lodges and camps located in stunning surroundings with fauna, unlike anything you’ll find stateside—not to mention Pinterest-worthy décor and superb cuisine—on this bucket-list excursion.
