Why go on Rwanda tours
Unfortunately, there isn’t so much to see on Rwanda tours except for mountain gorillas. Other safari activities include Iby’Iwacu cultural visit, Twin lakes visit, Golden Monkey tracking, Dian Fossey trekking, wildlife viewing in Akagera, and Chimpanzee trekking and canopy walk in Nyungwe, beach holidays in Gisenyi – Lake Kivu plus a few other activities. Good thing is you can summarize all these Rwanda travel activities in just a few days because the country is very small in size.
When to visit Rwanda for a safari
The best time to go on a Rwanda safari is between June to September and December to February. December to February is the most recommended but also one of the busiest months of the year. Visiting between these months will reward you lots of wildlife sights. Perhaps, your gorilla trekking experience will be much easier too because the parks are dry and you won’t have to worry about sliding whilst trekking. This however, does not mean you should not visit outside the months mentioned above. This is Africa (TIA). Even if it rains, the sun will always come out to dry the soil and the day get back to normal like every other day.
Rwanda gorilla permits
A Rwanda gorilla trekking permit costs $1500 each and can be purchased either in person or through a local tour operator from the Rwanda Development Board (http://www.rdb.rw/home.html). These gorilla tour permits are sold on first come - first serve basis hence, ought to be booked several months in advance to avoid missing out on specific dates. Ever since the double increment on permits, Rwanda automatically became a luxury gorilla safari destination.
Choosing your Rwanda travel package
Three things will help you determine the kind of Rwanda tour package you should book – Available Budget, Safari Activities and Schedule. If your budget is low, you might have to consider visiting specific destinations, lowering your days and carrying out specific activities. If your preferred safari activity is gorilla trekking, you can even spend as little as two days in Rwanda. Lastly, if your schedule favors you then you can go ahead and book a long safari else you reserve one that should last for only a few days.
