More than gorillas: The 'Land of a Thousand Hills' offers breathtaking landscapes and sumptuous luxury

If you’re looking to find a safari honeymoon destination away from the crowds and with a remarkable twist, Rwanda is the choice for you. 

Known as “The Land of a Thousand Hills”, Rwanda is a verdant paradise which is eagerly embracing its reputation as a stunning safari and eco-tourism destination. Its luxury lodges are superb for newlyweds seeking romance amidst discreet environs, and the wildlife experiences on offer will create a truly unbeatable safari honeymoon.

The tourism industry here has been geared towards responsible travel at every level, making it the natural choice for couples wanting to indulge in sumptuous luxury, without compromising on their convictions. Since gorilla conservation efforts are often written in to the very foundations of the hospitality industry here, you can rest assured that your honeymoon is of direct benefit to the beautiful, gentle creatures you’ve come to see.

So what does a honeymoon in Rwanda look like? Typically guests begin by heading to Virunga National Park to trek through dense and luscious jungle for the ultimate wildlife experience: an encounter with a silverback gorilla family. Thanks to Rwanda’s conscientious conservation efforts, originally spearheaded by none other than Dian Fossey, Rwanda can tell a welcome and remarkable success story where its gorillas are concerned. In 2018, it was announced that the gorilla population had increased by 25% since 2010, signalling that numbers are now above 1000. For those lucky enough to go on a gorilla trek, this means one incredible thing: more chances of a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

But Rwanda is not all about the Gorillas. In Akagera National Park in eastern Rwanda you can enjoy a ‘Big Five’ style safari experience, and for those with more time we recommend heading south to Nyungwe Forest where you can encounter chimpanzees face-to-face.

What's more, thanks to easy flight links from Kigali, a gorilla trek can be combined with an East African destination like Tanzania or Kenya for the 'ultimate' combination safari experience.

One thing’s for certain: choose Rwanda, and you’ll be setting trends for years to come.
