More About Rwanda

The landlocked country of Rwanda is surrounded by Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and Congo. It’s small but has a lot to offer travellers who wish to experience nature at its best. If you’re travelling to Africa for business or pleasure and are looking for quality accommodation and exciting travel experiences, then consider heading to Rwanda. There are many things to do in Kigali like visiting Bumbogo-Rwanda’s National Museum which has a collection of artifacts from around various parts of Africa. A visit to Nyamata Genocide Memorial Centre will give you an insight into what happened during those dark days. You can also go on safari tours that take you through Parc des Volcans, Nyungwe Forest National Park and Akagera National Park.

History of Rwanda

With its capital, Kigali, located on a plateau between steep hills and volcanoes, and landlocked by Tanzania, Burundi, Uganda and Congo, Rwanda is one of Africa’s most densely populated countries. This small country—almost twice as big as Denmark—only became independent in 1962. In 1994, after years of ethnic conflict that killed more than 800,000 people (about 20 percent of its population), it emerged from genocide to become one of Africa’s safest and fastest-growing economies. Today Rwanda is home to an incredible amount of biodiversity: It has over 500 species of birds alone!

Top Destinations in Rwanda

Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, home to over half of Africa’s mountain gorillas and one of only a handful of places in Africa where you can still track gorillas. Nyungwe Forest National Park, also called The Land of a Thousand Hills for its towering Virungas, is where you can go on safari at night. Lake Kivu, which borders Rwanda and Congo, is known as one of Africa’s clearest lakes. Volcanoes National Park contains five active volcanoes including Mount Karisimbi (14,787 feet), which offers some of the best views in all of Africa. Akagera National Park is home to rhinos as well as hippos and lions while Gishwati Nature Reserve boasts large herds of elephants that are frequently seen by visitors.
