WHY: This tiny landlocked country in East Africa sure does pack a punch! Most well-known for its access to gorillas living in the wild, it is also home to chimpanzees, monkeys and the big five. For wildlife-lovers it is a dream come true. It is also a country with a complex recent past that is worth acknowledging and understanding at the genocide museum in the capital city of Kigali. Starting your time here will help you look at the country differently as you venture out to more rural areas to explore. From rainforests that are home to picturesque tea plantations and Rwanda’s iconic terraced rolling holls, to lakes and volcanoes, to safari reserves and national parks, Rwanda is a great destination for first-timers to Africa. Its people are warm and welcoming, its policies progressive and its streets clean and tidy. All of which helps to make Rwanda a very appealing country to visit on your next trip.
