Rwanda

A visit to the safest of the African countries should be on everyone’s bucket list of safari experiences.  Gorilla trekking in Rwanda is an unforgettable experience and repeated by several of us at Accent on Travel. To stand in front of a silverback as he gently wipes the lashes of a newborn forces you to take a look at our own humanity.  Less often talked about, far less rigorous of a climb, and just as special of an experience is the Golden Monkey Trek where stunning faced monkeys, quietly walk on two feet and gather berries if you are patient enough to wait.  Rwanda has breathtaking scenery, friendly locals, and a thriving upcoming community of highly educated residents.  For those interested in the history that has propelled Rwanda to be the most gender-neutral country in Africa, a visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial will stay with you for a long time. The self-guided tour takes visitors through insights and similarities of the genocides around the world.  Lastly the museum highlights the remarkable reunification of today’s Rwanda that has closed the wounds for so many future generations.  It is a remarkable country that is well worth adding to your East Africa journey.  Accent on Travel’s portfolio of recommended African safari companies where a customized experience or small group guided safari includes Micato Safaris, Tauck Vacations, African Travel, CC Africa, Abercrombie & Kent, TCS Jet Journeys.
