Tourism is a key contributor to Rwanda’s economy, the most popular of this is the opportunity to track rare mountain gorillas through the bamboo forests of the Virunga volcanoes. These conical mountains are shrouded in equatorial jungles and helped earn Rwanda the well-deserved moniker of ‘Le Pays des Mile Collines,’ Land of A Thousand Hills.
