The Perfect Honeymoon in Rwanda
Rwanda's mix of gorillas, and spectacular scenery make it the perfect honeymoon destination
For those after some light adventure in a spectacular setting combined with stunning wildlife experiences, we highly recommend Rwanda as part of an East Africa honeymoon. What better combination could there be than the gorilla experience followed by luxuriating off the coast of Kenya or Tanzania?
Rwanda's most visited park is the stunning Parc National des Volcans, where Virunga Lodge with its stone and tile bandas and cosy log fires must surely be voted as the most romantic of all of Rwanda's lodges. Just 45 minutes drive from the gorilla headquarters, the lodge is located atop a hill that offers spectacular vistas of the Virunga Volcanoes, Lakes Ruhondo and Bulera, and the surrounding villages. The cottages at Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge, 15 minute drive from the gorilla headquarters, are spacious and provide seclusion and privacy. Other recommended lodges for honeymooners include Nyungwe House, owned by The One & Only. This modern, stylish and sophisticated remote hotel, set on the edge of the Nyungwe Forest and surrounded by an expanse of lush green tea plantations, is the perfect haven of luxury, and Karenge Bush Camp, a seasonal camp Akagera National Park offering a truly intimate authentic camping experience in Rwanda's only 'Big 5' protected area.
Rwanda combines really well with any beach destination on the coast of East Africa. Our recommendations for beach properties include the small intimate luxury Kinondo Kwetu Hotel located on the south Kenya coast; Fanjove Private Island a short boat ride from Songosongo island with 11km of intact coral reef; Kilindi on the northwest coast of Zanzibar with its whitewashed domed pavilions and private plunge pools; and the picturesque Zuri Zanzibar Hotel and Resort, with its stunning white-sand beachfront on Zanzibar's northwest shoreline.
These are just a handful of what we can offer - call us to find out more about our honeymoons to Uganda. We'll discuss which locations/regions would be best to visit and we'll recommend the best time(s) of the year to travel.
