Rwanda, is a landlocked country in the Great Rift Valley where the African Great Lakes region and East Africa converge and one of the smallest countries on the African mainland. It is surrounded by volcanic mountainous ranges with interior highlands of green rolling hills which is why it is famously known as the land of a thousand hills.
This peaceful and beautiful country offers the visitor many attractions like the majestic Virunga volcanoes where hidden among the bamboo forest are some the world’s last remaining wild mountain Gorillas, or the shores of Lake Kivu with some of the most picturesque inland beaches of Africa.
The entire country is at a high altitude which makes it enjoy a temperate tropical highland climate year round. Its natural beauty makes it a perfect destination for travellers who enjoy majestic landscapes of volcanoes, forests, lakes and mountain ranges, as well as very unique primate encounters with endangered mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, and golden monkeys.
