I dint know the extent of which war can damage a country until i visted Kigali Rwanda where millions of innocent people mostly women and children lost their lives through genocide.


Rwanda is a beautiful country in the central africa. The capital city is Kigali. As i approched the airport i could see small houses from the air . The drive form the airport to the city is not so pleasant. I spent the night a Chezlando hotel which costs about 40USD.............. The next three days i spend them touring the country, i went to nyanza.....The land of the king, Here i visited the kings palace. Nyungwe rain forest is awesome, there is a waterfall and the birds singing is memorable, i also had a chance to see the columbus monkey. I visited lake kivu and spent the night in a town called gisenyi. on coming back i went up the virunga mountain to see the Gorillas. The primates are big and very friendly........as long as you dont scare them with flash lights from your cameras........ Visiting kigali cannot be complete without visiting the Genocide memorial. The visit to the memorial made me realsise that we need more love and peace for each other to make a better world. Rwanda should be visited by anyone with love for culture.

Favourite spots:
Virunga mountain and Nyungwe mountain- this two places are very green though its abit chilly but you will love the experience. I would definately go there, thanks to my travel agent, silverback africa safaris.

What's really great:
the friendly people of rwanda- the rwandese dance very entertaining. the beutiful gals with faces full of joy and when you see them smile you thank God that they finally found laughter and peace in their hearts after what they went through during the genocide

Sights:
Virunga mountains
Volcanoes in gisenyi

Accommodations:
Chezlando
Gorilla hotel

Restaurants:
Havana
Fidodido

Other recommendations:

NO PHOTOS NEEDED!
As a first report *** very good. Thank you so much Caroline for submitting this very short but first report of Rwanda. Only two members briefly passed through that country and of all of us serious travelers we can till now only show a few gorilla pictures. On behalf of the GLOBO community thanks and I apologize for the comments below, they may have cameras but have no idea of life outside the western world!

Pictures always improve a report but a report without any is better than no report at all.
What you say is very interesting but it would help if you tell us more about the hotels and restaurants.
I always love to see a new member writing a report straight away and I reckon that should give you an extra star.

Caroline,
Good to see your first report. It is a very personal account and I can imagine what impression this made on you. It would be nice if you could add some more specific detail so that your report could be used as a guide for travellers visiting Rwanda. Maybe you could upload some photos.
