Rwanda is an undiscovered incredibly beautiful country with ever changing landscapes that offers outstanding flora and fauna and spectacular scenery. Misty, moody rainforest in the south gives rise to lushly forested volcanoes and bamboo in the north. Dugout canoes ply the tranquil waters of Lake Kivu in the west and undulating grass plains of Akagera in the east are interspersed with light acacia woodlands.
One of the ultimate highlights of Rwanda is tracking the elusive Mountain Gorillas of the Volcano National Park in the West of the country, but though this is an undeniably wonderful experience there is a great deal more to the country and it can easily be combined with some time game viewing at Akagera, relaxing along the shores of Lake Kivu or chimpanzee and Colobus monkey tracking in Nyungwe Forest. To add to the ecological diversity of the country Rwanda also boosts 670 species of birds in its small boundaries of a country half the size of Scotland.
Although Rwanda has become synonymous with the terrible genocide in 1994, the country has transformed itself into a stable, vibrant, confident and, above all, welcoming nation. A Rwandan safari will introduce you to its lovely people who are wonderfully friendly. They have courage and warmth and yet there is an innocence to them that is not always so evident in the rest of Africa.
