The country is small and landlocked, bordered by Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and Democratic Republic of the Congo. Despite its size, Rwanda has an abundance of natural beauty, and is famous for its variety of ecotourism ventures and conservation projects, which have revolutionised the future of this nation.
