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.

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.
