The land of a thousand hills

Landlocked Rwanda is characterised by undulating hilly and mountainous terrain, with rainforest on the western heights and heavily-cultivated fields in the valleys below. From the central areas, the land slopes away to the savannahs and marshes of the east. Considered the most densely-populated country in Africa with a predominantly rural population, Rwanda is as well known for its traumatic history, including the 1994 genocide, as for its courageous recovery to become a stable, well-run and united country with a truly inspiring story. Today, it is characterised by revival, recovery and renaissance!
