The extraordinarily beautiful, small country is home to more than one third of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas, who live in the high-altitude cloud forests of the iconic Virunga Massif. The optimistic energy of the people has earned their country the moniker ‘Remarkable Rwanda’. In the heart of Africa, just south of the equator, Rwanda’s relatively high altitude provides it with a remarkably pleasant tropical highland climate, albeit also with plenty of rain. It is pretty easy and straightforward to get around in the small country of Rwanda, with most places of interest located within a few hours drive from the capital Kigali. Rwanda has one of the best road systems in Africa, with a well maintained network of paved two-lane roads. The only gravel roads you’ll encounter are those in the more remote areas or within the national parks.
Nicknamed ‘the land of thousands hills’, Rwanda lies within the Great Lakes region of Central Africa, bordered by Uganda to the north, Tanzania to the east, Burundi to the south, and the Democratic Republic of Congo to the west. Despite being one of Africa’s smallest nations, Rwanda has an incredible treasure trove of biodiversity. Mountains dominate the center and west of the country, while the east consists of savanna, plains and swamps.
There are many reasons why Rwanda should be on your bucket list:
