Rwanda is a little landlocked country in eastern Africa. Due to its geography, it is also called the "land of the thousand hills". Rwanda is popular for tourists who want to watch the very rare mountain gorillas in their natural environment, which is possible in some areas here.

Why Rwanda?

Rwandas gorillas, the gentle giants of the rain forest, welcome you!

The land of the thousand hills - as Rwanda is also called - stands out due to its special abundance of species and the possible encounter with its mountain gorillas. They are the last ones of their kind and can be found in the foothills of the jungles and rain forests of the Virunga Mountains and in Bwindi National Park. The region runs between Rwanda, Uganda and Congo offers unforgettable experiences with the gorillas.

Rwanda's popularity has lots of reasons:

  • Easy availability with only little time difference (+ 1 hour during winter)
  • Good flight connection with Ethiopian Airlines via Addis Abeba or Brussels Airlines directly to Kigali. These flight connections can easily be combined with other destinations like Nairobi, Mombasa, Kilimanjaro or Zanzibar.
  • Uncomplicated entry regulations: Germans don't need a visa, Austrians and Swiss can obtain their visa at the border. For this you will need an online registration in advance (here) or you contact your Embassy directly.
  • Central location on the African Continent with lots of volcanos in the north, beautiful beaches at Lake Kivu in the west, savannah landscapes at Akagera National Park in the east or the Nyungwe National Park in the south which protects the largest connected mountain rain forest in East and Central Africa.
  • Home of the rare mountain gorillas and golden long-tailed monkey
  • Possibility to watch primates, wild animals and birds from near distance
