Thousands of tourists fly to Rwanda yearly for its unique charm and beguiling characteristics. One of the most lovable facts about the country is it's compact, so it's easy to explore. Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda, is near the famous Volcanoes National Park. Families of gorillas are abundant at the park, which why gorilla tracking is the area’s top attraction. City tour of Kigali is also a staple in a Rwandan itinerary, where you can learn more about the culture, traditions, and life of people in the region. The Nyungwe Forest National Park is another must-see, which homes countless chimpanzees, as well as a wide selection of birdlife. If you wish to unwind, head to Lake Kivu. Bask in the sun while riding a boat or paddling on a kayak as you explore the stretch of water while having an idyllic view of the Rwandan slopes.
