Discover Rwanda's Iconic Destinations 

At Aura Safaris Africa we truly believe Rwanda is a tiny country at the geographic heart of Africa bordering Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda and Tanzania. Just over 10,000 square miles, “In the heart of Central Africa, old volcanoes towering up almost 15,000 feet, covered with rich, green rainforest—the Virungas." On Rwanda’s western border with Congo, home to the mountain gorilla. Trekking from cultivated foothills into vine-tangled depths in search of these magnificent creatures is not just a safari highlight, but a high point of a lifetime.

Rwanda is home to a diversity of species including mountain gorilla, chimpanzee, golden monkey, hippo giraffe, zebra, leopard, crocodile and more than 600 species of birds. Ten percent of Rwanda is designated as Important Birding Areas. Plains and lakes dominate the eastern borders while Rwanda’s western mountains are draped in forest.
