a few practical tips


Rwanda Eco-Tours takes the health and safety of its clients seriously, and takes every measure to ensure that trips are safe, fun and enjoyable for everyone. We recommend that all clients check with the national travel advisory organization for the latest information before departure. But we will do our best to let you know just in case.


Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi are safe countries, but we recommend you get updated information from us in this regards. We advise you to get a travel insurance but if you don’t have it don’t hesitate to let us know so that we can advise you accordingly.


We believe giving something back is essential. We therefore work with our customers and the people we visit to ensure the benefits go directly to contribute to local cultures and environmental conservation. This is not only good the communities we visit but it also gives our clients more enriched adventures.


We have volunteer and internship opportunities in areas of ecotourism, community based tourism and other areas related to conservation and community development. If you are interested in any volunteer or internship opportunities, do let us know.


We encourage you to travel with an open mind to learn and share your experience with local people. Local people always love to share their living experiences with you and we would love you to share with them your life stories as well.
