Just a few degrees south of the equator lies the Republic of Rwanda, bordered by Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. To say that Rwanda is a country rich in biodiversity would be something of an understatement. From general game viewing in Akagera to the forests of Nyungwe, magical Lake Kivu and, of course, the mountain gorillas of Volcanoes National Parks there is an abundance of lush and vibrant flora and fauna, much of which is unique to this country.
