Creating spectacular ways to explore, discover and journey in Rwanda

Set in the shadow of the Virunga Volcanoes and the Albertine branch of the African Rift Valley, Kingfisher Journeys is the adventure activity tour operator and DMC for Rwanda.

An incredible destination

To visit a family of mountain gorillas will always be the unmissable highlight of an immersive tour of Rwanda with Kingfisher Journeys. However, in a land full of adventures, there are also safaris, wildlife experiences, numerous quality outdoor activities and cultural experiences that bring a visit to Rwanda to life. Surrounded by the lush, green hills for which it is so famous your clients will journey in quality vehicles and stay at incredible lodges, resorts and boutique hotels, as they connect with insightful people and gain an appreciation of this remarkable destination in new and interesting ways.

Our primary focus is designing and operating professionally guided tailor-made itineraries for individuals, couples, families and private small or large groups. However, we also operate scheduled fixed itinerary small group tours and supported self-drive itineraries.
