SPECIAL DEPARTURE: Indonesia: Raja Ampat Snorkeling
Dynamic landscape. Breathtaking at every turn. Adventure hub. Rwanda experienced great tragedy during the genocide of 1994, but the last 20 years have brought a remarkable transformation to this beautiful nation. The country might be most widely known for its endangered mountain gorillas. Indeed, gorilla tracking in Rwanda is an experience that is unmatched. With fewer than 900 gorillas left in the world, making your way to their habitat in the bamboo-covered slopes of the Virunga Mountains in the “Parc National de Volcans” (Volcanoes National Park) is a truly awe-inspiring encounter. But Rwanda is so much more.
Visit Nyungwe National Park, an untouched natural rainforest that is home to chimpanzees and other primate species, as well as dizzying array of birds and mammals. Or for a more traditional safari experience, explore the labyrinth of lakes, papyrus swamps, savannah plains, and rolling highlands of Akagera National Park—one of the most scenic reserves in Africa and home to many large plains game species including elephant, buffalo, zebra, and predators including leopard, hyaena and side-striped jackal. Or for a more urban experience, make your way to the dynamic capital of Kigali. Nestled along picturesque hilltops, with its bustling streets, pretty boulevards, and award-winning museums, it is a city transformed, gaining a reputation for being clean, green, and decidedly safe.
