Rwanda - A New African Dawn

Rwanda, nestled in the heart of the African Continent , is emerging as a new destination in East Africa for the Indian Outbound Travel market.

Apart from being home to the Mountain Gorillas, this beautiful land of a thousand hills offers a host of tourism products in an exceedingly clean and peaceful environment.  New attractions are being added in a systematic and phased manner. Coupled with these attractions, is the warmth and friendliness of the people in Rwanda which one can experience right from the time of arrival at the Kigali International Airport.

Volcanoes National Park

The Volcanoes National Park is where a visitor can have a breath-taking experience of seeing the mountain Gorillas at very close quarters - literally at an arm's length. As the mountain gorilla is an endangered species, these tours take place only in small groups of tourists and require the procurement of  a gorilla permit, in advance.

Akagera National Park

Located in the Eastern Province of Rwanda, the Akagera National Park is the largest park in Rwanda and abounds with hippos, giraffes, zebras and crocodiles. What is interesting to note, is that this park also has more than 500 bird species.

Nyungwe National Park

A recent addition to the tourism products is the now famous Canopy Walk where one can enjoy Rwanda's natural beauty while walking on the canopy suspended between two high mountains. This park also has around thirteen primate species and several half and full day tours are available to cater to one's needs. This Park also offers good camping opportunities for adventure tourists.

Thousand Hills Trail

One of the latest attractions in the country is the 227 km long Thousand Hills Trail - a hike stretching from Rubavu to Rusizi with various activities like biking , camping , sightseeing and many others . The Trail is a unique experience as one walks along the divide of two major African rivers - the Congo and the Nile. This hike also includes a visit to tea plantations, fisheries along the lake, historic sites like the Shangi Post and even a visit to a model Orphanage - L'esperance Children's Village. An interaction with the local population completes the uniqueness of the Thousand Hills Trail.

Lake Kivu

This large Lake situated in the Western Province offers tourists a variety of resorts situated right on its banks . There are also boating and water sports which add flavour to this location.

Good tourism infrastructure

 With a capacity of more than 5000 rooms, spread over 227 hotels , Rwanda caters to all categories of tourists and visitors. As tourism is the largest foreign exchange earner for the country, Rwanda Tourism is constantly upgrading its tourism products and services. The Rwanda Tourism University College and the Akilah Instituite for Women ensure that there is an adequate and well trained work force to service international tourists.

Indian cuisine

Kigali, the capital city, has some excellent Indian restaurants, which serve both vegetarian  and non-vegetarian delicacies right from  starters to typical Indian deserts.

Vibrant Night Life and Good Shopping

Rwanda offers a vibrant night life and good shopping outlets , where a host of international brands are available  at competitive prices.

Air Travel

 Kigali is well connected with flights from Nairobi, Addis Ababa and Johanesburg among other destinations.  


 Visas are very easily available from the Rwanda High Commission in New Delhi or on arrival at Kigali International Airport by simply making an online application prior to departure by visiting the web:
