Africa’s oldest national park, Volcanoes National Park, has long been a destination for travelers to East Africa. It’s known for being one of the best places to encounter mountain gorillas and is full of a plush, beautiful world of nature. If you find yourself embarking on a trip to East Africa, it’s definitely a destination worth visiting.


To be in the natural environment of gorgeous creatures in the rainforest is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Not only will you potentially come face to face with a mountain gorilla, but also a vast range of birds and wildlife that you couldn’t from your home. Appreciating the beauty of another place is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself.


Enjoying Rwanda


Volcanoes National Park is located in Rwanda, a popular travel destination in East Africa. Many solo travellers in particular choose to go to Rwanda because it is known to be one of the safest locations in Africa. It is a clean country with an active environmental focus from the government.


Though Rwanda is landlocked, it is often called “Le Pays des Mille Collines,” which translates to the Land of a Thousand Hills. It is a lush landscape that includes vast bamboo forests nestled within a wide array of gorgeous mountains. If you’re looking for a more urban experience, Kigali is one of the most popular cities to travel to within Africa.


Mindfulness and You


Many people find that traveling gives them a stronger connection with themselves, and allows for time for peace and reflection. Taking time away from work and the stresses of your daily life to explore is a beautiful way to reconnect with your inner thoughts, dreams, and goals.


Mindfulness therapy is a form of therapy that gives people the opportunity to connect to themselves on a deeper level. Before or after a travel adventure, you may find that you want to look deeper into who you are as a person and what you want from life. Living in a completely different environment can open your eyes to a lifestyle that you had never thought of before.


Why Traveling Is Good for You


Traveling not only gives you a chance to enjoy other cultures, but also a chance to reconnect with yourself. Taking some time to take a break from day-to-day life can give you better insight into what you want from life and how you want to approach the world. Whether you decide to take a trip with friends and family or on your own, enjoying the beauty of East Africa can only going to benefit you in the long term.


The memories, stories, and life experiences that can come out of travel are irreplaceable. Though it can be scary sometimes to step outside your comfort zone, travel experiences will help you see a life outside of the world you know, and experience cultures that you would never come across otherwise.


Why East Africa is the Perfect Travel Spot


Not everyone understands the beauty of East Africa. There are beaches, safaris, cities, rural areas – you name it. Depending on what you’re looking for, it could be the perfect travel destination for you.


Though the home is a beautiful thing, finding beauty in other parts of the world is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. There is so much out there for you to explore beyond your day-to-day life!
