Akagera National Park.

The spectacular Akagera National Park in Rwanda is home to some of the most impressive species on the earth, including elephants, zebras, buffalos, baboons, leopards, and hyenas, who have found a home among the stunning savannas, towering mountains, lush grasslands, and tree-fringed lakes. Now that poaching rules have been greatly reinforced, there are plans to restore lions and black rhinos here, and with over 1200 kilometers to explore, tourists may lose themselves for days in the awe-inspiring natural splendor.

Lake Kivu

Lake Kivu, which is part of the Great Rift Valley, serves as the boundary between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A fantastic relaxing place where travelers may visit and swim safely and it is also quite gorgeous. Try to explore towns such as Kibuye and Gisenyi near the Congo border with Rwanda.

Lake Kivu is one of only three known “exploding lakes” in the world. That is, this body of water has been known to produce limnic eruptions, which are unusual natural disasters caused by carbon dioxide spewing from deep lake water.

Even though these explosions have traditionally suffocated any living creature close, no recent eruption has been documented, and visitors are more likely to encounter a stinking heated cloud of combusting methane than anything lethal. The lake is one of the world’s 20 biggest, and its plush shoreline and stunning tropical foliage raise it to one of Rwanda’s most attractive places.

Tea Estate Tours.

Visiting a tea plantation may not be the most apparent thing to do in Rwanda, but it is one of the greatest things to do in the province of Gisenyi. Pfunda plantation’s tea production is in full swing during the rainy season, and a tour of the grounds allows visitors to amble around the surrounding crop fields and soak up some knowledge on the art of tea brewing, from plucking and drying to cutting and shipping. Pfunda is one of the region’s most sustainable tea firms, using local community people to guarantee that the region benefits directly from the business.

Volcanoes National Park

Since the 1988 Hollywood film Gorillas in the Mist, monkeys in all their fascinating, hairy beauty have been one of Rwanda’s most popular lures for visitors. Dian Fossey, who was slain here roughly 30 years ago, made the mountain gorillas of East Africa renowned, and they continue to flourish.

The national parks that house gorillas in this region have substantially improved in recent years, with more efficient road networks, an increased number of rangers, and enhanced animal protection procedures. Volcanoes National Park in the Virunga Mountains, a beautiful stretch of green overflowing with breathtaking landscape and rich, verdant foliage, is home to an estimated 300 of the 1063 gorillas thought to be left in the wild. Visitors must acquire a permit to enter the park, and while this may be fairly expensive at times, it is well worth it once you see enormous gorillas thriving in their natural habitat.
