Rwanda is a relatively stable East African country, and easily accessible from Kenya and Uganda. It is landlocked, surrounded by Uganda to the north, Tanzania to the east, Burundi to the south, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. Rwanda is not only the land of a thousand hills, but also a country rich in flora and fauna and stunning natural beauty in its scenic rolling and breathtaking green savannah. The country hosts some rare species of animals like the silverback mountain Gorillas as well as unique birds and insects in the tropical forest of Nyungwe.

Malaria – Extremely high transmission occurs throughout the year. Chemoprophylaxis is recommended throughout the country.
