Rwanda holidays go glam
Chris McIntyre, Managing Director of Expert Africa says: “There’s a generous sprinkling of luxury properties opening in Rwanda, causing a marked change in the kind of trips we’re arranging there. Until 2017 the accommodation options were fairly basic but comfortable. Then, when gorilla permits doubled in cost (they’re now $1,500 pp), a number of sophisticated lodges opened and now we’re mostly putting together high-end trips to luxury camps. The recently-introduced direct flights from Gatwick to Kigali have added to its appeal.”
Expert Africa offers the six-day Volcanoes Gorilla Safari, staying at the exclusive Bisate Lodge, priced from £8,111 pp (two sharing), including international flights, full-board accommodation, a private guide and 4WD vehicle for the duration of the safari, one golden monkey tracking permit, two gorilla tracking permits, transfers and park fees.
