About us
About us

Paws Africa Rwanda offers products that encompass accommodations on a full-board basis in carefully selected hotels and lodges. The safari lodges we have use are individually designed and are usually situated in unique remote locations, providing you the traveller with opportunities to experience Rwanda at its best.

Ground transport is by Jeeps , which are air conditioned, 4-wheel drive vehicles, allowing our visitors to see the very best of the country and wildlife comfortably.  It is called the land of a thousand hills hence this is the best mode of traversing the different parks.
