Tourist Destinations, Attractions and Wildlife Parks in Rwanda
Mention Rwanda to anybody with a little measure of geopolitical heart, and that person will undoubtedly recall images of the terrible genocide that brutalized this tiny nation in 1994. Anyway, since those dark days an extraordinary transformation has been wrought and today the nation is one of tribal unity, political stability, and a promising future.
Tourism is once again the main contributor to the economy and the industry’s brightest star is the opportunity to track rare and endangered mountain gorillas through bamboo forests in the shadow of the Virunga volcanoes. These conical mountains are covered in equatorial jungles and helped earn Rwanda the merited moniker of ‘Le Pays des Mille Collines’ (Land of a Thousand Hills).
Thus, while Rwanda’s scars may run deep, this is the ideal opportunity to help the country look to its future and embrace its new-found optimism.
