Amazing Rwanda

Why you should go to Rwanda with Apatite Hills

Travel to Rwanda — the country of mountain gorillas

The tiny state is almost lost on the tourist map among its giant neighbors. And if the words “safari” and “ancient tribes” no longer make your heart beat so often, but you still continue to passionately discover the black continent, then Rwanda deserves a place in your African collection.

Rwanda is the most atypical African country for our understanding. Contrary to stereotypes, the climate here is very comfortable and there is no sweltering heat, there are no mosquitoes and snakes, there are stunningly clean streets, kind smiles and European service in hotels.

Rwanda is a country of tropical forests, hills and volcanoes. Unimaginable landscapes will open to the eye as soon as your plane descends from fluffy clouds to land: a green carpet covers its entire surface, giving way only to rare blue lakes.

Among the reasons to visit Rwanda, one important point should be put in the first place: half of the world’s mountain gorilla population lives in the local national park. To meet face to face with King Kong is almost your childhood dream!

These giants, though many times smaller than the hero of the movie, are still incredibly powerful, although friendly, and the experienced guide accompanying you knows everyone here “by sight”.

Nearby, framed by volcanoes, lies the picturesque Lake Kivu, compensating for the country’s lack of sea. Cozy hotels have grown up around the lake, forming small resorts for those who want to relax for a few days with a view of the volcanic lake, and possibly swim in it.
