Rwanda

About Rwanda

Known as the Land of a Thousand Hills, Rwanda has successfully put the civil war and the genocide of the 1990s behind it. Today, Rwanda is considered a safe and stable country, perhaps best known as home to one third of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas.

Tourist Information
In the east of the country, Lake Kivu has some of the best inland beaches in Africa; while the Nyungwe National Park is made up of the largest rainforest in the region, with 310 species of birds.

Rwanda’s cosmopolitan capital, Kigali, is now promoting itself as a tourist and conference hub for the east African region.

The East African Tourist Visa, launched this year, allows you to visit Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda with a single visa.
There are three international airports in Rwanda: at Kigali, Nyamata in the east and Cyangugu in the west.

Transport
Rwanda has a good road network, and is well served by minibuses.  Kigali has an international airport and there is a domestic air service from Kigali to Cyangugu.

Languages
Kinyarwanda, French and English are spoken in Rwanda.
