Rwanda, commonly referred to as the land of athousand hills and mountains has become one of the greatest tourism destinations in Africa. This is simply because the country has long embarked on tourism conservation efforts which is greatly paying off at the moment. Some of the most common Rwanda safaris include wildlife safaris to Akagera National Park, golden monkey and gorilla encounters in Volcanoes National Park Musanze, chimpanzee tracking in Nyungwe Forest National park and more. Gorilla tourism remains remains the brightest star in the Rwanda tourism industry and one of the biggest sources of the country's annual revenue. Thousands of tourists travel each year to trek mountain gorillas along the Virunga Conservation Area (VCA). In fact, so may tourists prefer having their gorilla encounters in PNV to Bwindi, partly because of the short distance between Kigali and Musanze (where Volcanoes NP is found). Rwanda has one of the best road networks in East Africa! All roads that lead to national parks are smooth, tarmacked and well maintained. This is not the case with countries like Uganda.
