EAST AFRICA Rwanda
The many great peaks and valleys of “the Land of a Thousand Hills” will be at your fingertips when you visit remarkable Rwanda. The wonderful savannah, the many stunning hills, and the beautiful capital city of Kigali all offer plenty of opportunities for the photographer who loves to explore.
Sometimes, it’s not the wildlife that is the most fascinating part of a photography expedition. Kimironko Market provides you with an incredible slice of Rwandan culture– filled with market stalls for as far as the eye can see, this vibrant marketplace features fruits, vegetables, and traditional Rwandan fashion.
Volcanoes Natural Park
While the name may imply that the volcanoes are the main attraction in this park, that’s probably not the case for the birdwatchers among you. Volcanoes National Park is home to approximately 165 bird species, offering plenty of chances to capture some stunning birds in flight. Those who explore the park’s many trails may also be fortunate enough to find golden monkeys and mountain gorillas in their natural habitats.
A rainforest like no other, Nyungwe Rainforest is one of the few high-altitude rainforests on the African continent. Canopy walking trails can take you right to the tops of the trees, offering you the chance to snap some shots of a sprawling forest. The diversity of flora and fauna in the rainforest could lead to you spending days there with your camera in hand.
Akagera National Park
Another perfect location for birdwatchers, Akagera National Park is home to an amazing 500 bird species. It’s also one of the few places in Rwanda where you’ll have a chance to grab some shots of the Big Five.
Snap Some Stunning Shots
Rwanda’s many hills and valleys are perfect for those who love landscape photography. But for those who wish to get up close and personal with some wildlife, Rwanda offers ample opportunity with its national parks and the stunning Nyungwe Forest. A bird lover’s paradise, Rwanda is a stunning vacation destination.
