Rwanda is green and clean.
Not only are its forest-covered mountains verdant in the extreme, but it is in fact illegal to bring plastic bags into the country. The signage around Kigali says ‘Keep Town Clean’ and once a month there is a day devoted to ‘Keep Rwanda Clean’. The whole population gets involved in keeping their country tidy. This is just one aspect of the people and the pride they have in the high end tourism that is developing.
Rwanda is incredibly picturesque and is famous for its mountain gorillas. Safari companies from southern Africa are investing in new exclusive lodges for gorilla trekking and my daughter Kitty and I have just returned from a refresher trip visiting new lodges so that we can match clients who wish to explore this stunning country with the best accommodation for them.
There is an easy scheduled flight which links Kigali with the Serengeti so a few days exploring Rwanda fits easily within a safari itinerary.
