Welcome to the “Land of a Thousand Hills.” The lush mountainous terrain of Rwanda, with ancient volcanoes towering above surrounding foothills, is home to endangered mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, and rare golden monkey. Rwanda’s emerald-green rainforests have a truly magical air.
Care for the environment is an integral part of Rwanda’s ethos. The capital, Kigali, was the first city in Africa to receive the United Nation’s Habitat Scroll of Honor Award for its cleanliness and commitment to conservation.
With its mix of mountainous terrain, rainforest, and savanna, Rwanda is a delight for birdwatchers. Grab a good pair of binoculars and take advantage of unparalleled opportunities to spot some of its 670 feathered species.
