Rwanda, which is also referred to as the Land of a Thousand Hills, has been seen as one of the prime destinations for mountain gorilla tracking. Today, there are far more reasons for intrepid travelers from around the world to extend their stays in Rwanda. Besides the share of about one third of the remaining mountain gorillas, thirteen species of primates and the famous canopy walk in Nyungwe Forest are just as exciting as Akagera National Park. Lions have recently been reintroduced to the national park in the east of Rwanda, which increases the country's potential as a full safari destination. Rwanda makes for an exciting addition to Instinct Safaris' panel of journeys to Uganda and DR Congo.
