Rwanda- the “Land of a Thousand Hills”- is a country of verdant beauty and abundant fauna and flora. The country is flourishing, and tourists love to visit this safe and popular little country that has invested heavily in tourism and infrastructure over the last two decades.
Many visitors are lured to Rwanda by the Silverback Mountain Gorillas, who make their home in the staggeringly beautiful Virunga volcanic chain, an area made famous by the American gorilla researcher Dian Fossey.
Among Rwanda’s special attractions are its three national parks: Akagera National Park, Volcanoes National Park – home of the mountain gorillas, and Nyungwe National Park, all of which are phenomenal destinations for nature enthusiasts. The movie “Gorillas in the Mist” was filmed in Volcanoes National Park, the authentic location of the Karisoke Research Centre that was founded by famed primate researcher Dian Fossey.
Forest birding, crystal clear lakes, savannah safaris and authentic traditional culture encourage visitors to the tiny country of Rwanda to stay longer. Rwanda’s incredible natural wealth and biodiversity make the country a prime destination for nature lovers and people who wish to gain an authentic African experience.
Why not combine a trip to Rwanda with a visit to neighboring Uganda?
