Rwanda is nothing like the country it once was because now it is scarred by arguably the most genocide of the post-war period and beset by political tumult for much of the 20th century. Presently, despite some claims of low-key corruption and human rights abuses, Rwanda remains a beacon of hope for many Central African nations that are trying to shed a painful past. So, without wasting much of your time, let us take you through some of the best places to visit in Rwanda:
Since the darks days of the Rwandan genocide, Kigali has done a U-turn. Anciently, marauding gangs and death patrols roamed, presently there are busy markets and spice-scented streets stalls.

Huye was once popularly known as Butare, and most people call this place by this name only. Huye is the home of the National University as well as the National Institute of Scientific Research with the endless other reversed learning centers.
While most African hinterlands away from the Great Rift Valley are forced to fight with the likes of Kruger & Maasai Mara, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro. All around these craggy volcanic peaks, visitors discover lush montane forests and thick groves of African redwoods.
