Safari in Rwanda
Rwanda is a beautiful country with an incredible culture that has seen troubled times in the last 20 years; however, a fantastic tourism industry has emerged from this strife, putting Rwanda on the map as a premiere adventure destination in East Africa that should not be missed.
Visitors and tourists mainly come to Rwanda to see the famous mountain gorillas. Though many do this trip as an add-on to a Kenyan or Tanzanian safari, typically staying only 2-3 days, this length of time does not do this amazing country justice, as there are many things to see and do on a Rwandan holiday.
The country has three national parks, a vibrant capital city, majestic mountains, and a very diverse wildlife population with plenty to explore. Travelling around Rwanda is very comfortable, as most of the roads have been paved in the last 15 years with the government making serious strides in tourism infrastructure.
Rwanda’s troubled history:
Rwanda is truly an inspiring country for a holiday because of the remarkable way it has united after the horrific genocide against the Tutsis in 1994. A holiday in Rwanda gives you a great sense of the way in which the Rwandese people have come together and the way they view national pride. A visit to the genocide memorial is important when passing through the capital of Kigali, as it is a testament to the strength and commitment of Rwanda to reconciliation.
