Introduction

Rwanda will often be remembered for the 1994 genocide, which lead to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and caused around 2 million Hutus to flee the country. It is the natural beauty, however, that Rwanda is known for today, which has helping to build a fledgling tourism industry.

Matador guides you through the many sights in Rwanda, one of the smallest African countries: from gorilla watching, hiking in the highlands or a visit to the Kigali Memorial Centre.

In addition Matador offers pieces looking back at the country’s history and collects first hand accounts of the country’s tragic past as well as visiting social projects aimed at helping local communities.
