Rwanda has long been looked at as an extension for safaris from within because tourists believe there is not so much to spot there. This is wrong! There is just a lot you can see on your Rwanda safaris. Gorilla trekkers usually give it an edge over Uganda because of the short distance between Kigali City and Volcanoes National Park (just 3 hours away) and the smooth road network to all the national parks. If you are planning for a Rwanda travel holiday, below is some of the useful information that you ought to know.
Why take Rwanda Safaris?
Your primary reason for visiting Rwanda should be gorilla trekking or Chimpanzee trekking. Despite having a good number of wildlife in Akagera National Park, Rwanda is not so good for wildlife viewing compared to the rest of the East African countries. Trekking Mountain gorillas in Rwanda is one of the best experiences you will ever get and a must do. The experience is better than the one of Uganda and Congo because of short distance and good road networks.
Best time to travel to Rwanda
Despite being an all year round destination, the best time to go on Rwanda tours is definitely during the dry season. Rwanda apparently has two dry seasons which are; mid-December to early February which is the short dry season and June to late September which appears to be the long dry season. Any safaris arranged during this period of time will guarantee you the best hiking conditions. One good thing with Rwanda is their road network is very good and cars do not get stuck in mud while driving to national parks just as it is in Uganda. Schedule your Rwanda safari tours for this period if you want the best experience.
