Rwanda is gearing up for the 2019 opening of a new national park, as luxury accommodation providers continue to invest in the country.

Rwanda is gaining more of a tourism profile, with Visit Rwanda signing a three-year deal as Arsenal football club’s official tourism partner this summer.

The Gishwati-Mukura national park will open to the public next year in Rwanda’s north-west. It is situated on the highest ridges of the Congo-Nile Divide along the bio diverse Albertine Rift and will be a venue for bird watching, hiking and trekking to see chimpanzees and colobus monkeys.


Meanwhile, a new luxury accommodation option from One&Only, Nyungwe House in the forested Nyungwe national park, opened in October. This will be followed by a second property near Volcanoes national park, a gorilla-trekking destination, at the end of the year.


Also at the end of 2018, Wilderness Safaris will be expanding in Rwanda with a new six-tented camp, Magashi, overlooking Lake Rwanyakizinga.

The country saw a 21% increase in UK visitor numbers last year with more than 16,000 business and leisure travellers arriving.


RwandAir will add a fourth weekly flight from Gatwick to Kigali over the peak Christmas period between December 14 and January 11.


The carrier launched direct London flights last May and has confirmed plans to fly to Addis Ababa, Guangzhou, Tel Aviv, Guinea and New York, bringing the airline’s number of destinations to 31.
