Rwanda Ranked 6th in the 'Top 10 Countries' List of 'Rough Guides' -
In 2014, it will be twenty years since the Rwandan genocide, a sobering anniversary but one that emphasizes just how far the country has come; the economy has rebounded and peace has, by and large, been restored. Today, Rwanda’s dizzying natural assets are pulling in visitors once more: the mountain gorillas in Volcanoes National Park, of course, but also the rainforests of Nyungwe National Park and wildlife of Akagera National Park. Check with your embassy for the latest advice if you’re travelling near the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.
According the Governement, tourism continues to be the top foreign exchange earner. Between January and October this year, Rwanda received over 714,000 visitors who injected 217 million dollars into our economy, a 4% increase over 2012. Several hotels such as Mariott or Radisson, will open their doors in Rwanda, this year.
