Destinations around Rwanda
Rwanda, officially the Republic of Rwanda, is a landlocked country in the Great Rift Valley, where the African Great Lakes region and East Africa converge. One of the smallest countries on the African mainland, its capital city is Kigali.
Well known as the heart of Africa and land of a thousand hills, Rwanda’s stunning scenery and warm, friendly people offer unique experiences in one of the most remarkable countries in the world. It is blessed with extraordinary biodiversity, with incredible wildlife living throughout its volcanoes, montane rainforest and sweeping plains.
With four national parks in total, a holiday travel to Rwanda offer something different in terms of wildlife or ecosystem. The volcanoes national park for examples has mountain gorillas while Akagera is the only park where all the big five mammals can be sighted. Nyungwe forest has the oldest and most pristine montane forest in Africa and is arguably the best for chimpanzee trekking in Rwanda. Apart from having its own chimpanzee population, Gishwati is being positioned to become the best eco-tourism site and the best birding destination in Rwanda.
From the ancient kingdom to the modern day of Rwanda, creativity is something to be celebrated, whether through traditional dance, unique architecture or works of art. Travellers come from far and wide to catch a glimpse of the magnificent gorillas, yet there is so much more to see and experience in Rwanda.
