Attractions in Rwanda


overview


Rwanda

Rwanda, officially the Republic of Rwanda, is a country in central and eastern Africa with a population of approximately11.4 million. Rwanda is located a few degrees south of the Equator, and is bordered by Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. All of Rwanda is at high elevation, with a geography dominated by mountains in the west, savannah in the east, and numerous lakes throughout the country. The climate is temperate, with two rainy seasons and two dry seasons every year.

Rwanda

Rwanda has recovered significantly since the 1994 genocide. Visitors to Rwanda are astounded by the level of tranquillity, order and productivity that can be observed throughout the country. Kigali, the capital has turned from near ruins to a vibrant, clean and beautiful modern city. The population is young and predominantly rural, with a density among the highest in Africa. Rwandans share a common culture and language and are classified as social groups rather than tribes. Christianity is the largest religion in the country, and the principal language is Kinyarwanda, spoken by most Rwandans.

Rwanda

The economy is based mostly on subsistence agriculture. Coffee and tea are the major cash crops for export. Tourism is a fast-growing sector and is now the country's leading foreign exchange earner, the most popular activity being the tracking of mountain gorillas. Music and dance are an integral part of Rwandan culture, particularly drums and the highly choreographed Intore dance. Traditional arts and crafts are produced throughout the country, including imigongo, a unique cow dung art.

Our fly-in safaris will land at the Kigali International airport from where we by vehicle do a short yet inspiring city tour and then head into the mountains. We travel through amazing landscapes, viewing the source of the Nile River and an amazing buzz of the local population working in their fields and plantations. We reach the Volcanoes National Park at over 7000 foot elevation where we lodge and next morning do our Gorilla trekking expedition.
