The optimistic energy of the people has earned their country the moniker 'Remarkable Rwanda,' and it regularly features on must-visit lists.
Rwanda is a rainforest haven and one of Africa's most biodiverse regions, but, of course, its most celebrated wild mammal is the iconic, critically endangered mountain gorilla.
Rwanda is, of course, infamous for its comparatively recent 1994 genocide, where around one million people perished. Remarkably, today's Rwanda is very different, friendly, and safe, with one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa. Rwanda has shown great courage in recovering from the memory of the 1994 genocide to emerge into the stable, well-run, and peacefully united country that Rwanda is today.
Rwanda continues to heal from this horrific interlude in its history by openly discusses its past and confronts its mistakes by reconciling survivors with perpetrators, many monuments, and several museums, including Kigali's must-visit, poignant Genocide Memorial - which leaves a lasting impression. Additionally, the Rwandan's you will meet are very open to discussing the country's past and are often very proud of their present.
Rwanda has opened up the world to organised and safe primate viewing, especially when measured against the experience available in its neighbours. The gorilla trekking here caters to many individual levels of fitness and can be tailored to your needs. Some stunning, luxurious and exciting new accommodations are now available, and visitors are guaranteed unspoiled wilderness, pure luxury, and exceptionally high chances of seeing the protected mountain gorilla.
A vibrant and friendly culture with an incredible story to tell. Rwanda holds much in her peoples' history, and the value of tourism and conservation to this incredibly diverse land is positively unquantifiable.
