How about safari holidays in Rwanda?

Rwanda is now a stable country and a place where people may consider visiting, according to one writer.

Those looking to book safari holidays may be particularly interested in the views of Chris McIntyre, writing for the Telegraph, as he noted that Africa's most densely populated country is prospering.

While on a safari in the nation he came across several gorillas during a hike and added: "Looking into the eyes of a sizeable silverback male transcended any other wildlife experience I had known. He stared right back, clearly conscious that I was another individual."

Mr McIntyre also noted that the average income in the country is increasing and tourism has played a vital part in improving its situation.

In addition, other fascinating sights of nature could be achieved in Kenya and one writer for the Straits Times managed to spot "brilliantly coloured" birds and tubby warthogs when in the country.
