Revel in Rwanda's revival
Perhaps best known today for its infamous recent history, Rwanda is now setting forth in a new direction. We pay respect to the country’s troubled past and then experience its forward-looking development. We explore the vibrant city of Kigali and diverse verdant countryside: mountain forests that are home to Silverback gorillas, tea and coffee plantations and lake islands with traditional fishing villages. Along the way we meet people who share with us their optimism of a new Africa: seamstresses proud of their colorful dress, reformed poachers making a living by productive, sustainable means and everyday people farming, planting coffee and tea, improving their situation in whatever means are presented. Everywhere there is determination to create a country that is peaceable, viable, and authentic—and remains true to what makes Rwanda a truly special place.
