"The land of
a Thousand Hills", Rwanda is a green undulating
landscape of hills, gardens and tea plantations. It
offers tourists a one of a kind journey - home to
one third of the world remaining Mountain Gorillas,
one third of Africa's birds species, several species
of primates, volcanoes, game reserve, resorts and
islands on the expansive lake Kivu, graceful dancers,
artistic crafts and friendly people.
Rwanda is a thriving,
safe country with one of the lowest crime rates in
Africa. All major attractions are located within 1-5
hour drive from the capital, Kigali.
In a short vacation,
a tourist can reach volcanoes, rainforests, savannah,
lakes and the beautiful city of Kigali.
Located in the
heart of Central and East Africa with easy access
to bordering countries of Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi
and Democratic Republic of Congo as well as to Kenya,
Rwanda is an ideal location for travel within the
region for conference tourism. A visit here can easily
expand to include many of the great African destinations.
Rwanda is all too
often associated with the horrific events that unfolded
in 1994. It has been etched into the world’s
consciousness as one of the most savage genocides
in history. What happened is beyond belief, but the
country has taken giant strides towards recovery.
