Volunteer in Rwanda

Rwanda – The Land of a thousand hills!

The “land of a thousand hills,” a direct translation from the French “Pays des Mille Collines,” is an apt description for the verdant country of Rwanda. Come for the mountain gorillas, stay for humanitarian service and culture exchange!

Rwanda is the travel world’s phoenix rising. From a devastating genocide more than two decades ago, it has emerged as one of East Africa’s premier travel destinations, with a capital city transformed and world renowned national parks, which teem with birds and big game—minus the tourist hordes.

From the volcanoes, to the jungles housing a third of the world’s remaining gorillas, to the largest rain forest in Africa, Rwanda has a history of environmental conservation. Many travelers may first associate the country with the Rwandan Genocide in 1994, but a visit is often an eye-opening experience as guests discover today’s Rwanda, a peaceful land of friendly people who are highly optimistic about their country’s future.

Savvy travelers have been coming to Rwanda for years to see the country’s stunning gorillas. While Uganda and Congo also provide gorilla tours, the professionalism and ease of doing so in Rwanda make it the top destination. Unfortunately, too many visitors swoop in; see the gorillas, and then fly out—missing out on the country’s many other treasures.
