Today, Rwanda is a far cry from the nation it was in the mid-90s, consistently crowned the ‘cleanest country in Africa’. Rwanda has emerged from the shadows and has much to offer visitors, most notably the tracking of endangered mountain gorillas in the lush Volcanoes National Park, which extends across the peaks and jungle-covered slopes of the volcanic Virunga Mountains. Other major attractions include expansive Lake Kivu, ancient Nyungwe Forest with its rich population of primate species, and the game-rich savannah lands of Akagera National Park.
