RWANDA The land of one-thousand hill, Rwanda, has dealt with its past tragedies and has a lot to offer to intrepid travellers and wildlife enthusiasts.<br /> Africa's easiest and most accessible gorilla trekking is the main draw card of a Rwandan safari.<br /> Rwanda is the home of the Virunga Mountains, where Dian Fossey researched and habituated mountain gorillas in the 1960s, but this country has a lot more to offer than gorilla trekking.<br /> Rarely experienced in isolation, a Rwandan gorilla safari combines well with other East African destinations in Uganda, Kenya or Tanzania but there is more to green and hilly Rwanda than meets the eye: it is also home to the primate-filled Nyungwe Forest National Park where there are chimpanzees and fantastic bird-watching opportunities. Akagera National Park, on the other side, offers a classic breathless safari in search of the Big Five. Rwanda is still worth visiting as an up-and-coming destination offering primate walks, volcano hikes and bird-watching in Volcanoes National Park and Nyungwe Forest National Park.<br /> Lake Kivu is a gorgeous expanse of water surrounded by Rwanda's gently rolling , is a great place to enjoy boating, hiking, kayaking and chimp trekking.
