Group Safaris in Rwanda

Rwanda over the past 10 years has emerged as one of the epic tourist destinations on the African continent. The “land of a thousand hills” has achieved this through meticulous and devoted efforts to improve its tourism image which had been tainted prior to its being this beautiful destination to visit in East Africa. Rwanda now offers the best luxurious gorilla trekking among other countries that offer the gorilla experience and this has attracted many travelers to visit it.


Rwanda is coined by many as “the land of a thousand hills” for its countless picturesque hills that are beautifully strewn across the country. Scenic landscape added up with beautiful culture, amazing wildlife from mountain gorillas, the African big five in Akagera national park and other species lead to the creation of packages that cater for different needs of guests from group tours, solo or family packages. Most guests wonder what group tours are? Their benefits and what travelers can do during a group safari in Rwanda.


What are group safaris?


Group safaris are tour packages often generated for separate individuals that share the same travel interests but due to different reasons like high prices cannot afford a certain trip on private basis. These separate individuals are added together to form a group of people who have the same interests and can achieve more by joining a group than if they decided to go solo travelling. The groups created are normally of 3 to 10 or more people, pre-set itineraries, with scheduled departure dates and do not have a lot of flexibility.


Group tours can also apply to members who love to travel together for instance families, researchers or friends. For the first group of people who prior to the trip did not know each other, it's very crucial to keep at the back of your mind that individual character traits, beliefs and a few others exist and you should be ready to adapt with the members you find yourself with.


Activities you can do on group safaris in Rwanda


The activities of a group safari are no different from those of a solo traveler though you experience these with a section of people you share interests with and all of your travel together. Rwanda has several intriguing activities, which groups of various sizes can indulge in. these include but are not limited to:


Gorilla trekking


Rwanda is famous for its unsurpassed gorilla trekking adventure amongst all destinations that offer this precious gorilla activity. Gorilla trekking is where guests take on African rainforests found in or near the Virunga Massif in search of the splendid and gentle giants of Africa - the gorillas. This takes usually a 4 to 6 hours of trekking the beautifully sewn tree canopies, challenging hikes and insects and sensational bird songs. The arduous trek and your effort are greatly rewarded when you eventually meet these magnificent beasts in their natural abode.


Visitors get to spend an hour of bliss observing the gorillas eat, play, check you out through their deep gaze as you learn more about the history of gorillas, their struggle for survival and what important role they play in the world of conservation. This is one of the epic activities you can’t miss on a Rwanda group safari.


Wildlife viewing


This involves scenic game drives in the Akagera national park where you can meet African big five with ease as well as other mammals like elephants, hippos, buffalos and bird species including a few Albertine endemics like the Rwenzori turacos among others.


Wildlife viewing covers the exhilarating adventure of tracking chimpanzees, the man’s closet relative in the Nyungwe national park. An encounter with these raucous, intelligent, curious and playful creatures is one of the best safari experiences you can carry back from a group safari in Rwanda.


Cultural and historical tours


Travelers on group safaris always have an opportunity to relish the experience of having a first-hand encounter with beautiful Rwandan culture and people. The locals are one of the most hospitable and friendliest communities you can find on the African continent.


Here you can also taste their cuisine, dance and music as well as visit the famous museums and memorial grounds to learn of the awe-striking history of how a dark age of terror and death was turned around to create the gorgeous country you see of Rwanda today.


When to go for group safaris in Rwanda?


The country of Rwanda is one of the handful of countries where you can enjoy a group safari throughout the whole year in Africa. This is due to its favorable climate that favors tourism operations to run from the beginning of the year to its last day. However, it's more advisable to plan to join a group safari in the dry season when game viewing is at its best and animals are in abundance.


Embark on a Rwanda group safari and experience travel in a different aspect and marvel at Rwanda’s beautiful hills with people you share the same interests with.
