Known as The Land of a Thousand Hills, Rwanda is home to some of the most breath-taking scenery in Africa, including the dramatic volcanoes that are home to wild mountain gorillas

Highlights of Rwanda

Located in the heart of East Africa, the rolling hills form a patchwork of lush forests and farms, including tea and coffee plantations.While tracking the gorillas would be the highlight of Rwanda for many, it has much more to offer the adventurous traveller. The shores

of Lake Kivu conceal some of the best inland beaches on the continent, and Kigali is a surprisingly cosmopolitan and clean city – you might even see the President sweeping the streets on monthly volunteering day.Rwanda was brought to the world’s attention during the

horrific genocides in 1994. Two decades later the country has made giant strides forward to become an extremely welcoming and friendly place to visit, but to appreciate the impact and scale of the events, guests should not miss the touching genocide museum in Kigale.
