Africa - Rwanda (Chapter)
This is the Rwanda chapter from Lonely Planet’s Africa guidebook.
The mention of Rwanda recalls images of the horrific genocide of 1994. But since those dark days a miraculous transformation has brought relative political stability and a new-found air of optimism. The tourism highlight is tracking rare mountain gorillas through bamboo forests in the shadow of the Virunga volcanoes.
- avert your gaze as a mighty mountain gorilla ambles towards you in the Parc National des Volcans
- hike through steamy rain forests on the trail of colobus monkeys and chimpanzees in the Nyungwe Forest National Park
- kick back with a locally brewed Bralirwa in Kibuye or Gisenyi, on the sandy shores of Lake Kivu
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Kigali, Northwestern Rwanda, Musanze (Ruhengeri), Parc National des Volcans, Southwestern Rwanda, Huye (Butare) and Nyungwe Forest National Park.
