There are fewer sights more spectacular than seeing the Silverback Gorillas, the most magnificent beast on Earth, in their natural habitat. Trek to the Virunga mountain range where the rolling green scenery is almost as spectacular as the wildlife itself. Take the time to sip on the local banana beer in Kigali while chatting with local entrepreneurs. Learn about the blossoming world of social-enterprise that has moved the country from a painful past to a hopeful future. Hear stories of reconciliation, forgiveness, and strength.
When to go: June - September
"My trip with Thandeka travel has irrecoverably transformed my perspective of not just Africa, but humanity as a whole. My eyes were opened to a world of warmth, friendliness and compassion the like of which I've never seen before. Such a privilege to be able to immerse oneself in another's culture, particularly one as rich as Rwanda's. I was touched every day, and I was put out of my comfort zone every day, but indeed that's where life begins. My immeasurable thanks to Erin for making it all happen... What a wonderful world.”
