Review quote

"Rwanda is excellent; it captures the mood of the place and gives a positive and accurate account of a fantastic country." - Art of Travel"Every now and again you come across a guidebook which goes far above and beyond the humdrum list of exchange rates, visa requirements and one-line descriptions of sights and amenities. This guide is just such a book. It gives the prospective visitor real and detailed insights into the country, its people, history, flora and fauna. Even if you end up never going to Rwanda, you will feel you know the place quite intimately by the time you get to the final page." - Wildside"At last, a well-written and dedicated guide to Rwanda." - Footprints"Rwanda is an excellent book that I have recommended to all the visitors who come to Rwanda and who want to know more than just the superficial accounts from the press. This guide presents a clear and balanced overview of events in Rwanda's recent past, considered by many Rwandans to be one of the fairest representations. The book also describes the charm and attraction that make this country so different." - Dr Annette Lanjouw, Director of the International Gorilla Conservation Programme
