About Rwanda

Rwanda is a small mountainous country in central Africa and is bordered to the north by Rwanda, to the east by Tanzania, to the south by Burundi and to the west by the Democratic Republic of Congo. Rwanda is divided by great mountain peaks of up to 3000m (9842ft), which run across from north to south and it’s no wonder the destination is commonly referred to as ‘The Land of a Thousand Hills.’ Rwanda has also a good climate. Rwanda has rich and beautiful attractions. Among these include the Akagera National Park, Nyungwe National Park, and the Parc Nationale des Volcans or the Volcano National Park – famed for its Silverback Mountain Gorillas. The destination has three official languages, namely Kinyarwanda (vernacular), French and English. Most Rwandese are multi-lingual or at least bi-lingual. Swahili and other dialects from the region are also spoken especially in major commercial centres.
