Mountain Gorillas, Virunga and Akagera
Rwanda is known for its evergreen hills - hence its nickname 'land of a thousand hills' - and its mountain gorillas . Rwanda is one of the few countries, along with neighboring Uganda, where mountain gorillas still live. They live in the Virunga Mountains, in the northwest of the country. This Parc National des Volcans also offers ideal opportunities for mountain hikers. In addition, Parc National Nyungwe Forest with over a hundred species of orchids and about three hundred different bird species is more than worth a visit.
Thanks to the right climate and enough altitude, Rwanda is also one of the rising stars in the world of specialty coffee . It has proven itself over the years to belong to the absolute top of terroirs. Take a walk on a coffee plantation, be informed about the process from planting to grinding and taste!
