Rwanda is becoming increasingly popular for wildlife enthusiasts who are keen on witnessing the endangered Mountain Gorilla sheltering in the forests of the Parc National des Volcans. Tourism has rebounded well since the infamous genocide of 1994 and tourism is encouraged, as the best way of saving the magnificent Gorillas is to come and see them.
Rwanda is a beautiful mountainous, green land located near the Equator and home to over 670 bird and 100 orchid species – a paradise for bird watchers and botanists.
Rwanda has a rich culture, evidenced in the diversity of fine crafts and strong traditions. These include music and dance, and a variety of arts and crafts. Sought after crafts include pottery, basketry, painting, jewellery, wood carving and metalwork, and Kigali boasts a number of excellent shopping opportunities where one can view and purchase these articles.
