Rwanda

Rwanda is so small, you might struggle to find it on the map of Africa at first. But don’t be fooled by the size, this petite princess of East Africa is leading the way on this continent, looking back on a tumultuous history, but looking towards a bright, progressive future.
OVERVIEW

We’ve left no stone unturned to pick out the best local gems and properties for you in Rwanda. Arrive in Kigali and explore the heartbeat of the country: this city is clean, safe, vibrant on its way to become the “Silicon Valley” of Africa. Dive into the stirring history by visiting the Kigali Genocide Museum or absorb the impressions of a country on the rise in the energizing city centre, its markets or restaurants.

Leaving the urban jungle behind, it’s time to venture out into a real one: in the northwest of Rwanda lies the famous Volcanoes National Park. The lush rainforest encompasses the Virunga Mountains and is home to the mountain gorilla. The primates share this beautiful habitat surrounding ancient volcanoes like the Bisoke and Gahinga with other monkeys and a myriad of bird species. Some mistakenly call it gorilla walking, but not even gorilla trekking does it justice as it’s so much more.

If you feel like disconnecting from the world completely, we recommend a stay in Nyungwe Forest National Park. This fairy-tale land of impenetrable jungle, waterfalls and low-hanging mist is the ideal place for introspection and the pure absorption of the elements. We at AMADI are happy to combine your journey with some of the beautiful Uganda safaris in the neighbouring country.
