Volcanoes National Park
Tailor-made Volcanoes National Park Holidays

Soaring ancient peaks cloaked in emerald greenery vanish into the clouds. Lush rainforest echoes with the haunting cries and calls of rare golden monkeys and countless birds. And somewhere in this awe-inspiring, prelapsarian setting are some of the last remaining mountain gorillas in the world. In the circumstances, it’s no surprise that Volcanoes National Park is Rwanda’s dazzling headline act; indeed, for many, this 62-square-mile pocket paradise in the country’s north-west is Rwanda. 

Trekking through stunning-if-challenging terrain to spend a precious hour within sniffing distance of a troop of our primate cousins is the dream that will lure you here, but there’s so much more to savour. One day you could be making a pilgrimage to the forest base where primatologist Dian Fossey carried out her vital research and where she’s buried, the next plunging underground through volcanic caves formed 62 million years ago. And when you’ve done that, you can learn from the local villagers what it’s like to live here or sit out under a night sky so laden with stars it’s a miracle it doesn’t collapse under the weight.     

Let our in-the-know Rwanda specialists help you put a tick on your bucket list by sorting out everything from the perfect lodge to the most authentic local treks and tours.
