Rwanda is an amazing country. It’s a country of thousands hills and more than a million smiles. We visited Kigali, tracked chimpanzees, saw Lake Kivu and tracked the golden monkeys at Volcanoes National Park. We…
The next day we were about to track Golden Monkeys in Volcanoes National Park. The park is known for the Mountain Gorilla research that Dian Fossey did.
After relaxing for a bit in Kigali we headed west towards one of Rwanda’s national parks. Not just any park but one where we could track chimpanzees! It was 5AM sharp when we reported to the gate of the guesthouse. Chimpanzees sleep in their nests at night and start to become active in the morning.
All the books were right: it’s a huge and highly developed city with big modern buildings where you can walk the streets on one of the sidewalks or eat something at one of the many fancy restaurants. A way more serious subject you simply have to visit while in Kigali is the Kigali Genocide Memorial Museum.
After about four weeks of staying in, sometimes luxury, hotels and lodges it was time to camp again! This time at a grassy area at the Mwanza Yacht Club. Proper campings are scarce in Tanzania. After that we drove to the border and camped at a German Fort. The next day we passed the border of Rwanda.
