Travel tips


The land of a thousand hills and a million smiles.

Anyone visiting “The Land of a Thousand Hills” is in for a multitude of surprises. Rwanda has 5 volcanoes, 23 lakes and numerous rivers, some forming the source of the River Nile. Rwanda has something for everyone!

Fancy a safari? Akagera National park is where you have to go! Every game drive is a present and holds new surprises as nature reveals its treasures in form of buffalos, Maasai giraffes, elephants, hippos, crocodiles, zebras, monkeys, savannah birds, civets, leopards, hyenas, as well as the serval cats. Not to forget about the lions!

Always wanted to stand eye to eye with a gorilla? It’s possible! Volcanoes National Park has 13 families and you can meet one! A once-in-a-lifetime experience..

The majestic Kivu Lake in the West of the country provides breathtaking landscapes. Go kayaking, fishing, island hopping or enjoy the beautiful scenery from the shore.. Tried night fishing before??

Nyungwe forest is probably the most preserved forest in Africa. Some say it is the most important site for biodiversity in Rwanda. It is home to over 1000 species of creation after all. You can go chimp-spotting or if you’re more of a thrill-seeker walk the canopy bridge!

Any fashionista’s out there? We organise fashion tours where we take you the country’s hottest clothes and shoes designers. You can even design your own bag and pick it up a few days later..

About host

I fell in love with the country in 2013 when I first set foot on African soil for an internship in children psychiatry. Little did I know how intense and life-changing those 4 months would be. My time there was an emotional rollercoaster, it was though at some points and I just had to come back to see, taste and learn more of this intriguing interesting country and its people. In June 2014, I came back for 18 months and I had the chance to travel all over the country. That is when I learned how strong and resilient the Rwandese are, how peaceful Lake Kivu and how impressive its volcanoes and wildlife.

I got under my skin and never let go.

– Astrid –

I was born and raised in Byumba, a small city in the green hills one hour North of Kigali. I studied ‘Journalism and Communication’ in Huye and worked as a sports journalist on radio and TV. Beside journalism there is another – even bigger – passion in my life: volleyball! I’m proud to say that I represented my country in the National Team. I learnt that hard work and teamwork are a recipe for success.

I want to show other people the beauty of my country.

We want to create a warm place where everyone feels welcome. A relaxing spot for those who are on the road, or, when in your own country, a window on the world.

Let us take you on a journey.
