Why visit Rwanda
Rwanda is a country located in Central Africa without any access to the sea. Its territory is mainly mountainous and hilly, this is why, it is often called "Country of thousand hills". The most important mountain range is Virunga chain situated to the North-Western part of the country; it also hosts many active volcanoes.
Being set just below the Equator, the weather in Rwanda is pleasantly warm during the whole year and shows two seasons: a dry one, from June to August, and a rainy season, which spans from March to May and from September to November. Although the temperatures are quite high, the sun never shines too often, due to the white clouds that often cover the sky.
