Landlocked in East Africa and one of the smallest countries on the African mainland, Rwanda (officially the ‘Republic of Rwanda’), is fast becoming a tourist draw card. It boasts four National parks, numerous hills, stunning scenery and warm, friendly people. The country has experienced a dynamic transformation since the tragic genocide that took place in 1994. Memorials are scattered throughout the country, but the people of the “Land of a Thousand Hills” do not let history control their destiny, and visitors have the opportunity to develop a deep appreciation for the growth and unity of the Rwandan people.
Let’s Talk Logistics.
Kenya & RwandAir frequently offer the best deals to Kigali, the capital city.
Rwanda offers a host of head-rest options from unique and luxurious to familiar and comfortable. The Bisate lodge is one such, and one of the most breath-taking lodges in Africa, with just six en suite bedrooms built into the hills. A design icon, with the roofs of each room echoing the famous King’s Palace at Nyanza. There’s also the Nyungwe House; the first One&Only hotel in Rwanda and set in a tea plantation on the edge of Nyungwe Park, and more common-place accommodation includes Radisson Blu, located within the Kigali Convention Centre site. It is ideal for larger groups spending time in the city, and offers guests many facilities for relaxing, eating and doing business.
What’s to see?
Rwanda’s dramatic vistas are endless, with a fresh perspective around every corner. The country is full of beauty and managing to explore it all is easy, thanks to an excellent road network linking the core areas. Visitors can rest assured the country is safe as it is stunning.
The west of Rwanda forms a branch of the Great Rift Valley known as the Albertine Rift. It has many unique species and is bursting with life. Chimpanzees, golden monkeys and other primates live alongside hundreds of brightly-coloured birds, orchids and butterflies. And that is only scratching the surface.
Gorillas!!! Rwanda provides an amazing infrastructure that provides the privacy and support these creatures need to not only survive in the modern world, but thrive for generations to come. The Rwandan government restricts the number of visitors allowed to view the gorillas, and this means that securing your premium spot for a mountain gorilla trek is a privilege few people experience.
There are so many reasons to visit this beautiful place. So plan a trip today. Visit Rwanda.
