A hidden gem for adventurous souls
Rwanda is a small country with a big heart; it has been rebuilt and transformed into an African leader in development and education.
The capital city, Kigali, is uncommonly safe and cosmopolitan. Travel north, and the motive behind the country's nickname, "the land of a thousand hills," becomes quite clear. Socially-responsible and ethical tourism has helped shape a positive future for conservation in Rwanda. Some of the last remaining mountain gorillas reside in Volcanoes National Park, where you can trek to see these critically endangered creatures.
Working in partnership with local communities, we strive to ensure that any volunteer experiences we arrange are beneficial for the well-being of the people and environment of Rwanda. Visit non-profit organizations such as the Nyamirambo Women’s Center in Kigali, where you can engage with community projects and share lunch in the home of local women from the center. Cultural and historical evolution, entrepreneurial innovation, and excellence in nature preservation make Rwanda a fascinating and multifaceted destination.
