Destination Information for Rwanda
Home to a population of rare silverback mountain gorillas, Rwanda is also a top destination for monkey lovers. Not only are there gorillas, but visitors can see 12 more species of primates, including chimpanzees and colobus monkeys.
You wouldn’t expect a landlocked country like Rwanda to have any coastal like areas, but the large Lake Kivu, which borders the west of the country, offers just that. With both beaches and coves, there’s plenty for sun seekers to enjoy.
The capital city Kigali is up and coming, with a nice selection of hotels, bars, clubs and restaurants for tourists to enjoy. Outside of the cosmopolitan city, there are three national park which are highly recommended, with stunning wildlife a safari tour is a must.
Rwanda might not be the first destination that comes to mind when planning a trip to Africa, but that has started to change over recent years. This country is both beautiful and generally safe and welcoming to tourists.
