Rwanda - The Land of a Thousand Hills
Known as the land of a thousand hills, Rwanda's stunning scenery and warm friendly people offer unique experiences in one of the most remarkable countries in the world. It is blessed with extraordinary biodiversity, with incredible wildlife living throughout its volcanoes, montane rainforest and sweeping plains. Many visitors are lured to Rwanda by the Silverback Mountain Gorillas, who make their home in the staggeringly beautiful Virunga volcanic chain, an area made famous by the American gorilla researcher Dian Fossey. Among Rwanda’s special attractions are its three national parks: Akagera National Park, Volcanoes National Park – home of the mountain gorillas, and Nyungwe National Park, all of which are phenomenal destinations for nature enthusiasts. The movie “Gorillas in the Mist” was filmed in Volcanoes National Park, the authentic location of the Karisoke Research Centre that was founded by famed primate researcher Dian Fossey. Forest birding, crystal clear lakes, savannah safaris and authentic traditional culture encourage visitors to the tiny country of Rwanda to stay longer. Rwanda’s incredible natural wealth and biodiversity make the country a prime destination for nature lovers and people who wish to gain an authentic African experience.
The two primary tribes in Kenya that have kept their traditions are the Maasai and Samburu. The other intriguing tribes are the Turkana, Rendille and the Pokot. Anthropologists and other scientists believe that both tribes share a common ancestry. The Maasai and Samburu follow a nomadic pastoral lifestyle that is deeply rooted in nature. They do not hunt wildlife for food. Instead, their sustenance historically has included milk and their treasured cattle blood and meat, and sometimes preferred roots and plants. Our Tours will take you on a journey to more about them. You have a chance to visit their homes to see their lifestyle.
