"The land of a Thousand Hills", Rwanda is a green undulating landscape of hills, gardens and tea plantations. Situated at the heart of Africa, Rwanda is the bridge between the ecosystems of the Congo Basin and the Great Rift Valley of Eastern Africa, and thus shares the natural riches of both worlds resulting in a country of exquisite beauty and unsurpassed biodiversity.

It offers tourists a one-of-a-kind journey. It is home to one-third of the world's remaining Mountain Gorillas which is truly one of the most awesome wildlife interactions in the world. It is also home to one-third of Africa's bird species, several species of primates, volcanoes, game reserves, resorts and islands on the expansive lake Kivu, graceful dancers, artistic crafts and friendly people.

Rwanda is safe and easy to get around, with short distances to diverse destinations. All major attractions are located along a circuit within a 1-5 hour drive from the capital, Kigali. In a short vacation, a tourist can reach volcanoes, rainforests, savannah, islands, lakes and the beautiful city of Kigali. There is also easy access to bordering countries of Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Kenya.
