Rwanda is Uganda’s smaller, southern neighbor and boasts a similar landscape and array of wildlife that visitors are excited to learn about.

Luxury travel in Rwanda is still a somewhat rugged experience, but Absolute Travel has comprehensive Rwanda travel information and first-hand Rwanda travel tips to make your vacation amazing.
The most common reason to visit Rwanda is to visit the rare, critically endangered mountain gorillas that are found exclusively in the volcanic forests of Uganda, Rwanda, and the Congo. Enjoy views of the five extinct volcanoes of Parc National Des Volcans and trek through the lush forest trails with expert guides. You will be awed by a safari experience unlike any other as you observe majestically massive gorillas in their natural habitat—a truly sublime experience, and an extraordinary glimpse into the lives of these dwindling creatures so closely related to mankind. You can also search for Chimpanzees and Colobus Monkeys in Par National Nyungwe Forest.
Beyond the fascinating wildlife experiences, Rwanda is blessed with a number of other interesting features that make it an appealing country to explore. Head to Lake Kivu for the beautiful inland beaches and enjoy some tranquility in Gisenyi. Pay tribute to the victims of genocide of 1994 at the Genocide Memorial in Kigali or the Ntarama, or Nyamata Genocide Memorials. Learn about Rwanda and travel to the National Museum of Butare in Huye or learn about traditional life from the friendly locals and schoolchildren.
