Foreign Travel Advice

Travel to Rwanda and Tanzania, two must-see destinations on the East African overland circuit.

On this trip we'll enjoy the classic East Africa safari experience, visiting some of the most famous game parks in the world, including the Serengeti National Park, Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. We hope to see elephant, lion, leopard, giraffe, and other big game during our drives here. We also have an optional hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti which many people say is an absolute highlight of their trip.

We also have three days to follow part of the Congo Nile Trail, a 227km trail which winds along the coast of Lake Kivu in Rwanda, stopping off at local villages and coffee plantations and wild camping on the way.

Rwanda is of course also famous for the genocide against the Tutsi which took place in 1994, and in Kigali we visit the very moving memorial centre. This is a country which has made enormous progress in rebuilding since this tragedy, and which is quickly acquiring a reputation for the warm welcome offered to visitors.
