In its rebirth, tourism is among the sectors that has recorded a flourishing growth. The tourism in Rwanda is mainly based on some unique attractions across the Country. Rwanda is made a unique destination by various attractions but the most coveted being gorilla trekking in the Volcanoes National Park. It is unique in that these endangered species are only found in the great lake region only in Rwanda, Uganda and the DRC.

Thousands of tourists from all around the world come to visit these apes said to be sharing 98% of their DNA with human beings.

However, tourism in Rwanda is not only about Gorilla trekking. Other attractions that make Rwanda a unique destination includes the game drive in Akagera National Park, the only savanna park in Rwanda, whereby when visiting it, you will be rewarded by a view of the big five animals including lions, Leopards, elephants, rhinoceros and buffalo. All of these are made possible by the rejuvenation of the Park and the reintroduction of Lions and rhinoceros among others that have disappeared from the Park during the liberation war of 1990-1994 and the deforestation of the Park in search for farms for cattle keeping and farming.
