Rwanda sits at the hub of Africa. Here, at the center of the Albertine Rift, where deep volcanic forces are pressing the continental plates apart, you will find a world of exquisite beauty as well as unsurpassed biodiversity.
Rwanda is the bridge between the forest ecosystems of the Congo basin along with the great rift valleys of the east. It shares in the biological riches of both worlds, offering a concentration of biodiversity found nowhere else in Africa. The country boasts of a wide variety of wildlife. The Volcanoes National Park in northern Rwanda is home to rare mountain gorillas which are in hundreds. The gorillas live in a protected area, free from poachers.
An absolute guide has been developed covering Rwanda’s wildlife, history as well as culture along with practicalities such as travel, cost and accommodation – and, of course, how to visit the mountain gorillas.
