Although most visitors come to see the gorillas, Rwanda has so much more to offer besides with spectacular mountain scenery, a thriving capital and friendly people. The vast rainforest of Nyungwe Forest National Park has incredible biodiversity and is home to a large population of chimpanzees, while the shores of serene Lake Kivu feature sandy beaches and fishing villages.
The genocide of 1994 looms large in Rwanda's modern history, but the country has since united to become the peaceful optimistic place that it is today. A visit to Kigali's Genocide Memorial is worthwhile to learn about the events of this horrific period.
