Rwanda

Rwanda is a small country in comparison to its neighbors with an area of just 26,338 square kilometers, even less than the Serengeti ecosystem which spans approximately 30,000 sq km stretching out in Tanzania and Kenya. The whole country is located at high altitude, with the lowest point of the country being 950 above sea level. So because of this high altitude, most of the country is covered with mountains. All of these mountains are part of the Albertine Rift Mountains which is home to some of the endemic plant species. While the central and western part of this country is dominated by mountains; savannah, swamps, and plains are major landforms in central part, thus giving it a diverse touch.

Even though Rwanda Safari has fewer wildlife population, nevertheless it is quite varied and in fair number given the area of this country. Apart from housing one-third of world’s gorilla population, savannah animals like giraffes and elephants are common in this region. Lately lion population is increasing in this country. On the other hand Rwanda seems to be an avifauna paradise with 670 distinct bird species inhabiting this small country, 26 of which are endemic to the Albertine Rift.
