Arsenal Women Visit Rwanda – Up close and personal with gorillas in the jungle

Arsenal Women Visit Rwanda – Up close and personal with gorillas in the jungle by Michelle

Jen Beattie, Katie McCabe, Jordan Nobbs and Catline Foord of Arsenal Women team took some time out after their stunning 9-1 win over Zurich in the Champions League, to go crazy in Rwanda.

Our Gunners swapped the pitch and footballs for activities such as archery and gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park.

It’s nice to see some of the team relaxing and enjoying the jungle before they headed off to their respective countries to enjoy the Christmas break with their family and friends.

Arsenal end 2022 on a high with their Women’s Super League campaign looking very healthy as they sit at the top of the table, second only to Chelsea.  While their last group match of the Champions League saw them go top of their group as they head into the quarter-finals of the competition.

Can’t wait to see what our Gunners have to offer on the pitch when we face out next WSL challenge at Emirates Stadium, welcoming Chelsea on 15th January!

  1. Don’t Rwanda have human rights issues?
    Not a good look for these players imo.

    Did they have to visit as part of the sponsorship I wonder? Would be interesting to know.

  2. True but “Safari” tourism is a great thing.the money it generates, goes straight back to wildlife organisations which help with the protection of rare species.not only that but the people also benefit from it. tourism create employment (hotels..), tourists are also known for buying souvenirs from the need to separate the government and the people.
