Service Beyond Expectations
Hospitality and kindness are at the heart of everything we do. As our guest, we will take care of you every step of the way. Our tours are customized to the needs of each of guests so you can be confident that you will receive unparalleled service and experiences throughout your trip.
Destination Rwanda tours and safaris staff are local to Rwanda, fluent in English and French, and trained in all aspects of tourism. We look forward to sharing our knowledge of the wildlife, culture, and history of Rwanda with you.
Our business is staffed with Rwandans, and the hotels, restaurants, and attractions we visit are Rwandan owned unless specified in the itinerary. In the case of foreign owned organizations, we ensure they are supporting and empowering local communities.
Destination Rwanda is committed to investing in local businesses and giving back a percentage of our profits to organizations that support conservation efforts and survivors of genocide.
Traveling with Destination Rwanda means your presence and money will support conservation efforts and have a positive impact on local communities.

Meet Our Management
Heather O’Halloran, Managing Director
I firmly believe in exploring, being curious, and building community. I’ve traveled in over 70 countries and across Africa in just about all levels of comfort. From luxurious 1st class seats on jumbo jets to overnighting in rustic guesthouse rooms – I’m all about seizing the day and living life in full color. We are all surrounded by experiences ready to be enjoyed and there is no better place to experience the wonders of natural beauty, a rich history, and the kindness of community than Rwanda.
Gilbert Iradukunda, Chairman of the Board
My nearly 20 years of experience in tourism and hospitality has taught me that anything is possible with a positive approach. Rwanda is a warm and friendly country, and that’s exactly what I enjoy sharing. My goal is to make all visitors feel like well cared for guests while helping them have the vacation experience of a lifetime.
