East Africa - Rwanda (Chapter)
This is the Rwanda chapter from Lonely Planet’s East Africa guidebook.
Today Rwanda is a country of tribal unity, political stability and a promising future. Tourism is once again a key contributor to the economy and the industry’s brightest star is the chance to track rare mountain gorillas through bamboo forests in the shadow of the Virunga volcanoes.
- hike the forested slopes of the Virungas for a close encounter with mountain gorillas and golden monkeys in Volcanoes National Park
- watch an Intore dance performance at the National Museum of Rwanda, the finest museum in the country, in Huye (Butare)
- kick back with a locally brewed Bralirwa on the sandy shores of Lake Kivu at Gisenyi or the equally beautiful Kibuye further south
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Kigali, Northwestern Rwanda, Musanze (Ruhengeri), Volcanoes National Park, Gisenyi, Huye (Butare) & around, Nyanza (Nyabisindu), Nyungwe Forest National Park, Cyangugu, Kibuye, Eastern Rwanda, Akagera National Park, Understand and Survival Guide.
