Welcome to Rwanda

Rwanda is a landlocked republic in east-central Africa. The country has borders to its north with Uganda, to its east by Tanzania, to its south by Burundi, and to its west by the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Steep mountains and deep valleys cover most of the country. Lake Kivu in the north-west, is the highest lake in Africa. Extending north of it are the Virunga Mountains, which include the volcano Karisimbi. The interior highlands consist of rolling hills and valleys which has earned it the name ‘land of a thousand hills’.

Rwanda appeals to adventurous travelers interested in hiking the hills and mountains, inhabited by a large population of silverback gorillas. The country is relatively safe easy, and simple to travel around.
