Rwanda is a small country that you can easily explore in a short time. But it is worthwhile as it offers wonderful scenery, very polite and helpful people, cheap and good food and the opportunity to visit the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.

The greatest part of the country is covered by beautiful green hills, lakes and volcanoes. There are nice views from the top of the hills and an amazing scenery in lake Kivu, the largest lake of the country.
Main roads are good and transporting is easy and relaxing.

The most striking feature is its cleanliness! The people have taken it seriously and they are cleaning the whole country with their own hands every day!
Also they try to educate themselves as best as they can and the result is obvious in their behavior. Many speak both English and French and they are eager to help you and make you feel most welcome.

    Wonderful tips on Rwanda!
    We may have an opportunity to go over the Christmas/New Year period, and your tips and gorgeous photos have certainly made a persuasive case!

    Hi Elsa, a wonderful page, I really enjoyed your writing, and all the beautiful pictures! Rwanda is one of my dream destinations, I very much hope to get there one day! It looks so green and nice in your pictures. My favourite tip is the one about your bumpy bus journey, I felt as if I was travelling with you :-)
