The endless mountains of this scenically stunning small country have helped it earn the nickname of, "Land of a Thousand Hills," or as they say "Le Pays des Mille Collines" in French. The mountains get to a new majestic level in Virunga Mountains which are a chain of volcanoes housing critically endangered mountain gorillas. Rwanda National Park takes you on a different route than traditional African Wildlife Safari.

With an area of just 26,338 square kilometers, it is the fourth smallest country in Africa. The whole country is in high altitude where mountains dominate the central and western part of the country. The eastern part is layered by savannas, plains, and swamps which accommodates most of the bird life of this place. The country has diverse wildlife as well which are concentrated mainly in three national parks of the country.

Here Are The Major Rwanda National Parks We Provide:

  • Volcanoes National Park. This is the main national park of Rwanda known for impressive gorilla population and Gorilla Trekking Tours. It is considered one of the oldest Africa National Parks after it was gazetted way back in 1925. It is part of the great Virunga Volcano Conservation Region which stretches to Congo and Uganda. Besides that, you can also easily spot golden monkeys, Spotted Hyenas, buffalos, elephants, and black-fronted duiker.
  • Virunga Mountains National Park. The Rwandan part of Virunga Mountains is adjudged as a wildlife paradise which houses famous mountain gorillas, and abundance of bird species. It is distinct in its own ways from its counterparts in Rwanda and neighboring countries. The eight volcanoes situated in the range also accommodate different plants and animals, many of which are endemic.

It wouldn't be wrong to state that Rwanda is unique in its gorilla concentration in its national parks. These highly endangered species find a perfect breeding ground in the mountains of Rwanda.
