Rwanda

The lens has shifted on this veritable jewel of the African continent and is now firmly glittering. The ‘Land of a Thousand Hills’ was for many years blighted by the legacy of the awful events of 1994, but now - following concerted and determined effort to recover and rebuild - tourism outpaces any other part of the economy. It celebrates in its breath-taking scenery and rich wildlife – whilst not shying away from its troubled past; indeed, tourism is positioned as one of the roads of its recovery. Although tiny, Rwanda has the largest remaining single tract of montane forest anywhere in East and Central Africa and it boasts three national parks, including Volcanoes, home to the mountain gorillas - arguably one of the top animal sighting privileges in the world. Luxury accommodation and low visitor numbers make Rwanda a compelling option for those seeking an exclusive and exhilarating Africa experience.
