Responsible tourism: Gorilla safari & vacation in Rwanda, tailormade

Rwanda is a country which has made leaps and bounds in rebuilding itself after the horrors of the genocide in 1994 and tourism plays a crucial part in contributing to its economy. We use Rwandan guides and drivers throughout our itineraries and choose our accommodation carefully to ensure they are employing local people in the hotels and are sensitive to the surrounding environment.

A visit to the Gisozi Genocide Memorial at the end of your trip will give you a good opportunity to learn the people's presentation of what happened in 1994 and your entrance fee goes towards supporting orphans, widows and widowers from the genocide.

The gorilla tracking permits which cost US$750 per person per day provide enormous support to the Volcanoes National Park, paying for park rangers who do anti-poaching patrols, educating the people who live near the national park about the importance of gorilla conservation and employing the rangers who accompany you on the gorilla tracking excursions. Whilst the cost of the permit is relatively high, without this funding it would be impossible to stop the poachers and protect the habitat of the gorillas for future generations to enjoy.
