'Rwanda is excellent; it captures the mood of the place and gives a positive and accurate account of a fantastic country.' Art of Travel 'Every now and again you come across a guidebook which goes far above and beyond the humdrum list of exchange rates, visa requirements and one-line descriptions of sights and amenities. This guide is just such a book. It gives the prospective visitor real and detailed insights into the country, its people, history, flora and fauna. Even if you end up never going to Rwanda, you will feel you know the place quite intimately by the time you get to the final page.' Wildside 'At last, a well-written and dedicated guide to Rwanda.' Footprints 'Rwanda is an excellent book that I have recommended to all the visitors who come to Rwanda and who want to know more than just the superficial accounts from the press. This guide presents a clear and balanced overview of events in Rwanda's recent past, considered by many Rwandans to be one of the fairest representations. The book also describes the charm and attraction that make this country so different.' Dr Annette Lanjouw, Director of the International Gorilla Conservation Programme 'The excellent Bradt Guide to Rwanda includes detailed sections on the national parks.' The Sunday Telegraph 'Recommended reading' Conde Nast Traveller magazine
A practical guide with insight into the people of Rwanda, their history, culture and aspirations, this guide covers all three of Rwanda's Parks, including a visit to the amazing mountain gorillas in the Volcanoes National Park. Nyungwe Forest, the largest single tract of mountain forest remaining in east or central Africa, is home to many other primates as well as orchids, reptiles and birds; while Akagera Park offers a range of savannah wildlife including giraffe, buffalo, zebra and antelope. Hippos, huge crocs and water-birds populate its lakes. The guide also visits the most scenic of Rwanda's other lakes, including Kivu with its many islands. Nor are Rwanda's history and culture forgotten, with displays of traditional dance and handicrafts, and visits to historic sites. Rwanda in 2004 is safe, stunningly beautiful and among the most welcoming of countries.
