Rwanda is now the second fastest growing economy in Africa with significant focus on growing tourism and this is where the 'Visit Rwanda' campaign originated from. Rwanda is truly the hidden gem of Africa and bound to get much attention in the coming years.
The Rwandan government and its people realised that after the mass genocide of 1994 it would take much hard work, forgiveness, growth and partnership to achieve a thriving Rwanda. It is certainly well on it's way to achieving this.
Many great companies, including Volkswagen have invested in Rwanda and expanded their business ventures here. But one noticeable and proud partnership is with Arsenal Football Club from the United Kingdom. The Rwanda Development Board together with the backing of Arsenal are promoting Rwanda as not only a favourable country to invest in, but more importantly to grow its tourism market and create unity in sport with the focus on football at grassroots level.
We have travelled and explored extensively in Rwanda with the Rwanda Development Board and are extremely passionate about promoting travel to this stunning and diverse country.

Rwanda is not just about the Gorillas, so plan a visit to Volcanoes National Park, but we recommend including it's two sister parks - Akagera National Park for wildlife including Lions, Elephant, Giraffe, Hippo and more, and Nyungwe National Park for the variety of primates including Chimpanzees and of course relaxing and exploring beautiful Lake Kivu. With plans to add a tourist lodge in Rwanda's newly established 4th National Park - Gishwati-Mukura National Park - conservation and tourism are thriving in Rwanda.
Rwanda, known as the land of a thousand hills, its stunning scenery and warm, friendly people offer unique experiences in one of the most remarkable countries in the world. It is blessed with extraordinary biodiversity, with incredible wildlife living throughout its volcanoes, montane rainforest and sweeping plains.
Travel enthusiast visit Rwanda to catch a glimpse of the magnificent gorillas, but there is now so much more to see and experience in Rwanda.
Rwanda is ranked as the second easiest place to do business in Africa by the World Bank. Rwanda has also been awarded for its leadership in tourism and economic competitiveness by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) and the World Economic Forum.
Rwanda is also a convenient hub for meetings and events, with world-class facilities – the Kigali Convention Centre (KCC) has been chosen to host the next Commonwealth Heads of Government Summit in 2020. The KCC offers a premium environment for regional and international conventions, exhibitions, festivals, meetings and other events.
The west of Rwanda forms a branch of the Great Rift Valley known as the Albertine Rift. It has many unique, endemic species and is teeming with life. Chimpanzees, golden monkeys and other primates live alongside hundreds of brightly-coloured birds, orchids and butterflies.
This is only scratching the surface of what the Rift Valley has to offer.
As guardians of many iconic species, Rwanda is committed to safeguarding their existence within the four National Parks. We are constantly working to ensure we can live in sustainable harmony with our environment, with a clean and green mindset. We banned plastic bags in 2008, and our lands are possibly the cleanest in Africa thanks to efforts throughout every community.
Ten percent of the income derived from gorilla, safari and other tourist permits, as well as park fees, is spent in partnership with local communities to change lives for the better.
Rwanda’s dramatic vistas are endless, with a fresh perspective around every corner. The country is full of beauty and managing to explore it all is easy, thanks to an excellent road network linking the core areas.
Visitors can rest assured the country is safe as well as stunning – Rwanda was ranked the 9th safest country in the world by the World Economic Forum.
What makes Rwanda truly special are the warm and friendly, Rwandans. They are so respectful, thoughtful and committed to the idea of progress, starting at the grass roots and running all the way to the top. From the ancient kingdom to the modern day, creativity is something to be celebrated, whether through traditional dance, unique architecture or works of art.Enquire Now
