lady and gorilla looking at each other in Rwanda

Dark past, bright future

Most people know Rwanda for all the wrong reasons: war, poverty, political instability, and tragedy. Few know how far it has come in a very short time. The new Rwanda is one of reconciliation, recovery, and renewal, much of it built from travellers eager to explore and understand. Home to a staggeringly beautiful landscape of grassy slopes and misty mountains that shield shy mountain gorillas from all but the most curious travellers, Rwanda is rewriting its troubled history one visa at a time. Come write a brighter future.
