A central African country of unbelievable natural beauty. Scenes of rolling green savannahs, hills smothered with tropical rainforests and bamboo forests, falling to lakes (Lake Kivu is one of the African Great Lakes), then rising to dormant volcanoes and home to three protected national parks (Akagera, Volcanoes and Nyungwe).
The foremost reason for many who come to Rwanda is to spot its golden monkeys, and see Rwanda’s rare mountain gorillas and silverbacks in the wild. Defying its troubled past, Rwanda’s stability and hospitality is going from strength to strength.

One of the most picturesque and green places in Africa, the valleys of Rwanda are an enchanting place. Seeing the gorillas in the tiny areas that we, as humans, have left them is a privilege that not many people get to experience in their lifetime. It is also one of the most important things you can do as a responsible tourist.
