Despite its painful past, Rwanda has come a long way over the last two decades to become one of the most stable and welcoming countries in eastern Africa.
Dubbed the “Land of a Thousand Hills” for nothing; the scenery is rugged, wild and never less than stunning. Famously, Rwanda is one of the best places in Africa to see mountain gorillas in their natural environment.
Landlocked between the DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo), Tanzania, Uganda, and Burundi, Rwanda has a jungle climate that lends itself to flourishing wildlife and nature. Travellers come from all over to see the world-famous gorilla and chimpanzee sanctuaries scattered throughout the land. Lush rainforest are remarkably well preserved allowing endangered mountain gorillas to roam freely.
To the far west of the country, the shores of Lake Kivu boast idyllic beaches and luxury resorts cater to those desiring a bit of pampering and relaxation after the gorilla treks! The two most famous national parks are the Parc National Nyungwe Forest and the Akagera, both havens for animals and birdlife.
From jungle, to lakeside beaches, buzzing capital of Kigali to the beguiling Musanze caves, Rwanda bursts with exciting options.
