Known as ‘The Land of a Thousand Hills’, Rwanda’s green undulating hills, gardens, and cascading tea plantations hold hope for the nation and the remarkable wildlife that calls it home.
The legendary Virunga Mountains in the north are home to active volcanoes, forests shrouded in clouds and half the world’s total population of critically endangered mountain gorillas. To the west lies Lake Kivu, one of the world’s deepest lakes. The country supports impressive diversity in its national parks, including Akagera, Gishwati-Mukura and Nyungwe National Park. Aside from the thousand plant species, 670 bird species and a myriad of reptiles and amphibians, Rwanda is home to 150 mammal species, amongst them 15 primates.
Considered the most densely populated country in Africa with a predominantly rural population, Rwanda is known for the traumatic genocide of 1994, as well as its courageous recovery to become a united country with a truly inspiring story. Dive into the stirring history by visiting the Kigali Genocide Museum in Kigali and feel the country’s energy in the city centre, its markets and fine restaurants.
