Rwanda is the world's premier gorilla-tracking destination and was made famous as the setting for the film Gorillas in the Mist. However there is much to see beyond magical encounters with gorillas: Lake Kivu, the mountain-ringed inland sea; the immense Nyungwe Forest National Park with its chimpanzees, monkeys, and rare birds; and the wild savanna of Akagera National Park. Written in an engaging and colourful style this new edition is packed with personal anecdotes of people and places met across the country. With an emphasis on eco-tourism, there is a dedicated chapter to each of the national parks outlining all the practicalities: how to get there, how to obtain a permit; where to spot wildlife; how to identify flora; and how to identify the best trips offered by tour operators. Rwanda provides the most comprehensive coverage of any English-language guidebook on the market.

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
