    Signature

    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

    Bistro

    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Immerse yourself in modern Rwanda

Contemporary Rwanda is a country moored by its recent past, yet firmly set on its future. Everywhere you look, the country is churning and forward-looking. With this influx of optimism the exceptional beauty of Rwanda has never been more intriguing: cloud forests that house some of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, burgeoning coffee production which carpets the hills with shiny green leaves as far as the eye can see, incredible mountain ranges comprised of volcanoes, National Parks ripe for discovery, hidden inland beaches—and most importantly, people who are welcoming and eager to share the story of their country and their resiliency.

Activity Level What’s Included Gear Extend Your Trip

Enthusiast

This trip is appropriate for travellers who take long walks once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat. It includes moderate to challenging walking on a variety of surfaces. On occasion the golden monkey & gorilla tracking can lead through untamed forest and steep, slippery terrain.

The Traveller

“I go on a long walk once a week, and I don’t mind a little sweat.”

The Terrain

Rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.

Walking Sticks & Hip Holsters

Walking Sticks

trip pool Sometimes your B&R trip simply isn’t long enough! Extend your stay for the best vacation possible. If you wish to spend a few days in region either before or after your official B&R trip, and need assistance making those plans, your B&R Travel Advisor can help.

Call us to create an independent travel experience that fits your needs—we can also arrange for a local guide.

Spend more time in Rwanda

If you would like to add on another night at Singita and a second gorilla trek please let us know at time of booking. If you'd like to extend your trip elsewhere, we recommend a trip to Akagera National Park for two or three nights. You’ll get a taste for a vastly varied landscape from the rest of Rwanda. In the 1990s the land here was nearly destroyed until a revival project proved that a bit of drive, education and dedication can bring places back from the brink. It's a beautiful compliment to the theme of our Rwanda Walking trip, where we investigate the revival of the mountain gorilla.
