When thinking of Rwanda, the first thing that likely comes to mind is the horrific genocide that took place there in 1994. However, what many people don’t know is that Rwanda is a country full of natural beauty and adventure opportunities. From mountain gorillas to volcanoes to golden beaches, Rwanda has something for everyone. Here are some of the highlights:

Volcanoes National Park: This park is home to Mount Karisimbi and Mount Visoke, two of the eight volcanoes in the Virunga Mountains. Visitors can hike to the summit of Mount Karisimbi or take a guided walk around the base of Mount Visoke to see the mountain gorillas living there.

Lake Kivu: This stunning lake is located on the border of Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is known for its clear turquoise water and beautiful sunsets. Visitors can enjoy a variety of activities on the lake, including boating, fishing, and swimming.

Akagera National Park: This national park is home to a wide variety of animals, including lions, elephants, zebras, and hippos. Visitors can go on safari drives or boat tours to see these animals in their natural habitat.

Nyungwe Forest National Park: This park is famous for its vast array of plant life, including over 1,000 species of trees. It is also home to chimpanzees, colobus monkeys, and more than 275 bird species. Visitors can enjoy canopy walks, nature hikes, and bird watching tours in the park.

Golden beaches: Rwanda has a number of beautiful golden beaches, including Gisenyi Beach, Kibuye Beach, and Lake Bunyonyi Beach. Visitors can relax on the beach, go swimming, or take a boat tour on the lake.

When planning a trip to Rwanda, be sure to add at least one of these destinations to your list. You won’t regret it!
