Known as “The Land of a Thousand Hills,” Rwanda is a green, undulating land of hills, gardens and tea plantations. Along with its spectacular scenery, Rwanda has a unique gift to offer: it is home to one third of the world’s remaining population of Mountain Gorillas. As if this were not enough, it also boasts one third of Africa’s bird species, several other species of primate, volcanoes, game reserves, resorts and islands on the expansive lake Kivu, graceful dancers, artistic crafts and friendly people. Despite a decade of war and environmental devastation, Rwanda has made a remarkable recovery, and now continues to honour its long, proud history of conservation.
Rwanda’s high altitude allows for a pleasant tropical highland climate, with an average daily temperature range of less than 2° C. Temperatures vary considerably from region to region because of the variations in altitude. At Kigali, on the central plateau, the average temperature is 21° C. Rainfall is heaviest in the southwest and lightest in the east. A long rainy season lasts from February to May and a short one from November through December.
