Rwanda – Gorilla safari & Wildlife tours, Africa safari destination

Primate Watch Safaris welcomes you to Rwanda!


Rwanda is a small country on the highest African plateau about the size of Wales. It is a land locked country in the heart of the African continent. It is generally known as a land of a thousand hills where few volcanoes stretch in the horizon. The undulating hills and mountains ever covered by mist every morning form a good scenery-hence the saying “the gorillas in the mist”. Rwanda is bisected by the Rift valley forming enclaves and good natural forest habitats for over 600 bird species and the famous mountain gorilla National Park that houses the last surviving gorillas on earth. The Akagera National Park is in the northern part of the country bordering Uganda and Congo.
