Rwanda: Land of a Thousand Hills

It is hard to type ‘Rwanda’ into your search engine without it adding the word ‘genocide’ into the search suggestion. But it is good to see that the landlocked East African nation has recovered from the gruesome national tragedy of 1994, where about one million people were killed between April and July in a mindless bloodletting orgy.

Described as the land of a thousand hills, due to its topography, Rwanda has become one of Africa’s emergent tourists’ destinations, and now proudly wears the tag, Remarkable Rwanda.

While some are drawn to the country to see the various memorials erected in memory of the victims of genocide, many others are attracted by the opportunity of embarking on what has been tagged ‘the best adventure on the earth’ – Gorilla Trekking, and a chance to spend an hour with a gorilla family.
