Rwanda
Known as land of a thousand hills
Gorilla Trekking in Volcanoes National Park
Big-5 Safaris in Akagera National Park
Rwanda is known as Africa’s Switzerland – this tiny ‘land of a thousand hills’ is green and mountainous.
The country is clean and safe and offers a good, functioning infrastructure. Aside from the beautiful landscape, the main reason guests visit Rwanda is to track the rare Mountain Gorilla in the Volcanoes National Park. We also recommend Nyungwe Forest for the chimpanzees, Lake Kivu and Akagera National Park for a proper safari and game viewing.

Rwanda is an equatorial country in Eastern Afrika. The country is rather small (only about half the size of Switzerland), but with about 13 Mio people one of the densiest populated in all Africa. Rwanda is bordered by Burundi to the south, Uganda to the north, Tansania to the east and the Democratic Republic of Congo to the west.
