Rwanda is a landlocked East African country, to the south of Uganda and the to west of Tanzania with a green, mountainous landscape. Its renowned Volcanoes National Park is home to mountain gorillas and golden monkeys. The park encompasses 4,507m-tall Mt. Karisimbi and 4 other forested volcanoes. In the southwest is Nyungwe National Park, with ancient montane rainforest that's a habitat for chimpanzees and other primates.

The things to do in Rwanda are not many, but very unique.  The country is long passed its war torn days and now is one of the safest countries to visit in Africa. Unlike other East African countries there is strict law and order, there isn’t any garbage on the streets, and lawns are manicured to impossible perfection.

The country is extremely small and there is one thing that everyone knows you can do in Rwanda, gorilla trekking. Most people think that the only thing to do in Rwanda is to see the Gorillas.  A very unique experience when you can get inches away from Gorillas is something that you can’t put a price on.  The largest group of gorillas are in Uganda but you can also have a great experience in Rwanda.

A Rwanda tourist attractions list wouldn’t be right without adding the list of national parks in the country.  Rwanda is a host to a great variation of animals aside from gorillas including chimpanzees and a variety of birds as well.  Some of the popular parks are Akagera and Nyungwe.

Part of the Great Rift Valley, Lake Kivu is the border between Rwanda & DR Congo.  A great relaxing region where tourists are safe to visit and swim (ask locals where) and its also extremely picturesque.  Make sure that you try to visit cities like Kibuye and Gisenye near the DR Congo border.

This is the cultural hub for the country and was once the most important city before 1965.  Here you will find a great national museum that will show the great history of Rwanda and also it’s entrance into the modern world.  Visit the nearby Nyabisindu (Nayanza) where you can find the impressive royal palace of Rwanda’s fuedal monarchy
