Luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent has opened an office in the Rwandan capital of Kigali. This is the company's 10th office in sub-Saharan Africa and its 53rd worldwide.

Gorilla tracking in Rwanda has grown to become a popular option for travelers in East Africa, according to the company. Rwanda often complements an East Africa safari itinerary that might include Uganda, Tanzania or Kenya.

Popular visits include Rwanda's Nyungwe Forest, home to 13 primate species, some 300 bird species and 75 mammal species. The country's Akagera National Park is a popular safari park with diverse landscapes and wildlife.

"I first visited Rwanda in 1969 and it is wonderful that all these years later to see Rwanda becoming a luxury travel hotspot," stated Abercrombie & Kent founder, chairman and CEO Geoffrey Kent.

The new Abercrombie & Kent office in Kigali is taking bookings for gorilla tracking and Rwandan safaris.
