Remarkable Rwanda is a scenic landscape of green undulating hills, popularly known as ‘Land of a Thousand Hills’, Rwanda is a small, verdant country in central Africa. Its rolling hills are dotted with tea plantations, rugged mountains and towering volcanoes, with the shimmering Lake Kivu in the west. The northwest is dominated by the magnificent Virunga Mountain range – a group of six towering volcanoes standing sentry along the border of Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. Located inside the Volcanoes National Park, they are surrounded by over 150 km2 of mountain forests.
The real appeal of the country can be discovered outside of urban areas, with explorations of the lush national parks. The most popular activity in Rwanda is gorilla trekking and meeting these gentle giants in their natural habitat is widely acknowledged to be one of the most profound wildlife experiences in the world. Rwanda is today a very peaceful African country, scenically stunning destination that is rich in culture and wildlife, boasting fine food and one of the friendliest welcomes in Africa.
