7 Days Rwanda Culture and Wildlife Safari


Rwanda is an African stronghold with a high level of language coherence among its people. The Tutsis, Hutus, and Twa make up its three main tribes; they all share the same language, Kinyarwanda. These three tribes may be distinguished based on their physical characteristics, but they also have a distinct religious identity and are evenly distributed over the entire region. However, they have significant political differences that are said to have contributed to the genocide in 1994 in Rwanda. The refugees in the diaspora, particularly those in the neighboring nations of Uganda and Congo, who still have strong ties to their mother country, Rwanda, have also had an impact on the culture of the country. The 7-day Rwanda culture and wildlife tours safari take you to the most popular cultural sites, including memorials to the genocide, pygmies (Batwa), the twin Lakes, and Lake Kivu, allowing you to experience eco-tours.

Itinary in details

Upon arrival at Kigali International Airport, meet a Dav Safaris representative and travel to your Kigali hotel for dinner and an overnight stay.

After breakfast, the driver guide will pick you up from the hotel and transport you for two hours to Akagera National Park, which is close to the Tanzanian border. Along the journey, you’ll see some stunning scenery. After that, we’ll check into your lodge and have a break. After lunch, you’ll go on one of Akagera National Park’s most amazing game drives in search of a variety of wildlife, including lions, elephants, Uganda Kobs, warthogs, water and bush bucks, giraffes, and buffaloes, among other species. You should expect to see a variety of birds while driving.

After an early cup of coffee, go on a dawn game drive to spot predators leaving their lairs and early risers returning. You will have opportunities to observe a variety of animals during the game drive, including elephants, buffalo, lions, Masai giraffe, gazelles, impala, baboons, oribi, Butchel’s zebra, topi, bush baby, leopard, and bushbuck. After breakfast, go back to the lodge and unwind until lunch. After that, take a boat ride on Lake Ihema where you may witness hippos, enormous Nile crocodiles, and a diverse bird population with 525 different species.

After breakfast, take a trip to the Genocide Memorial before returning to Kigali. After lunch, continue to the Volcanoes national park by traveling along the border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo through lovely terraced hillsides.

After an early breakfast, we will travel to Kinigi Station for a briefing on gorilla trekking in Rwanda before continuing directly to the forest’s slopes. We deploy an advance team so you may travel directly to the location where the advance team has located the gorillas, making gorilla trekking less taxing than it once was. The maximum time spent with gorillas is one hour; then, go back to the resort and rest. We might go on a quick cultural tour to several nearby towns, depending on the tourist’s schedule. Return to the lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.

We’ll go see Dian Fossey’s grave, who spent 20 years as a well-known mountain gorilla researcher. On the journey to the Grave, take in beautiful surroundings and up-close views of numerous species of wildlife. Return to the lodge for dinner and an overnight stay.

Enjoy a morning of calm relaxation. You might eat lunch at the Lodge before going to the airport for your trip, depending on the timetable. The Rwanda eco tours, gorilla safaris, tours, and adventure gorilla trekking are now complete.
