Rwanda is among the smallest countries on the African continent. This landlocked country is located in the eastern part of Africa, and the entire surface of the country lies in the Great Rift Valley. It borders Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The predominant relief of this country is hilly, so you can often hear the description of the Land of a Thousand Hills. Rwanda is rich in lakes, of which the largest and most famous is Lake Kivu. In addition to all this, Rwanda is one of the last two countries in the world where mountain gorillas can still be found in their natural habitat, so many visitors decide to look for them in the hilly forests of this beautiful country.
