Rwanda

 
Rwanda’s dark past is behind it, and in recent years the proud East African nation has become an increasingly popular destination for tourists wishing to see the majestic mountain gorillas in the wild. This relatively recent development as a tourism destination means that the country is still very much unspoiled, but that doesn’t mean you have to rough it. Rwanda has everything from five star resorts all the way down to budget backpacker accommodation. Rwanda is not only home to the enigmatic mountain gorillas, but also another thirteen species of primate and a dazzling array of birds representing fully one third of Africa’s bird species.

A green and eco-friendly tourist destination, Rwanda is also a great place to hike, go caving, and – you guessed it – go on safari. While its mountain gorillas may be the main attraction, Rwanda’s Akagera National Park is a perfect place to try your luck at spotting three of the Big Five in the wild.
