Rwanda is a small East African country that draws visitors from all over the world, primarily to see its endangered mountain gorillas.
Rwanda is in East/Central Africa, east of Democratic Republic of the Congo, with Uganda to its north and Burundi to the south. Rwanda also shares its eastern border with Tanzania.
The best time to visit Rwanda is from June – September (during the dry season).
Tracking Mountain Gorillas – Rwanda’s tourist economy is centered around tracking mountain gorillas in the Parc National Volcans (PNV), and it is well worth the trip. Add on extra days to see the golden monkeys, and trek to Dian Fossey’s grave/research site.
