Why Rwanda Should Be On Your 2017 Bucket List

I visited Rwanda recently and was thrilled to see how developed, organized and exciting this small East African country had grown to become. The people and government of Rwanda have certainly achieved giant strides in making their country hospitable for visitors despite the effects of the genocide war of the nineties. I had a great time in Kigali, Gisenyi, Cyangugu and made great friends whom I’ve been in touch with. I certainly look forward to going back someday. So if you’re thinking of a new destination to explore this year, Rwanda is surely the way to go. Among others, here are the reasons why Rwanda should come up top on your bucket list this year.

  • Rwanda has an amazing road network despite its largely hilly terrain
