6 Most Popular Tourist Attractions in Rwanda; Top Sights in Rwanda. Rwanda is one of the best holiday destinations in Africa that will bring out the adventurer in you, with awesome wildlife & cultural experiences. A land of a thousand hills, with Savannah, many lakes, rainforests, birdlife, and wildlife. Discover the Mountain Gorillas living in the Volcanoes by hiking through the bamboo and dense jungle forests. The majestic peaks will offer you a lifetime experience that will make you want to come back.

The unique culture and people are exciting, especially the traditional dancers. Different types of dances but the one where you get to see ‘Men’ wearing grass wigs jump up high in the air and Women with a ‘Cow dance’ all singing beautiful songs – very overwhelming and exciting.

Rwanda’s gorillas were made famous by the movie Gorillas in the Mist – a film about an American Zoologist, Dr. Dian Fossey who dedicated her life to conserving the endangered gorillas in Rwanda during the 1980s. Her gravesite is located next to the other gorillas that were killed by the poachers.



For another special encounter – enjoy seeing the Chimpanzees in Nyungwe forest, one of Africa’s most pristine rain forests with several activities to enjoy including canopy walks. Apart from Chimps, several other primates can be seen as well as birds too. The Akagera Park has the ‘Big-five’ status now so you won’t miss out on seeing some of these animals including the Rhinos.

Rwanda is generally a small country but there are plenty of ways to explore the varied landscapes whether you drive through the savannah-like plains of Akagera National Park Kayak in Lake Kivu or climb the Misty slopes of the Virunga Volcanoes to see gorillas or relax on the Lakeshore beaches.
