Have you ever imagined visiting a place known as the "land of a thousand hills"? This is Rwanda, a small country located in the heart of Africa, whose history and culture are as rich as its landscapes.


The trip begins in the vibrant capital, Kigali, known for its impressive cleanliness and organization. Afterwards, we headed to Akagera National Park, the largest protected area of savannah in the country, full of hippos, elephants and giraffes. Next, we visited Volcanoes National Park, home to the rare mountain gorillas. Nkombo Island, in Lake Kivu, and Butare Cathedral are also mandatory stops on this journey.


You may know that the official language of Rwanda is Kinyarwanda, although English and French are also spoken. The local currency is the Rwandan franc and yes, Brazilians need a visa to enter the country.


Now, you may be wondering: what is the socioeconomic and political situation like in Rwanda? Despite experiencing a devastating genocide in 1994, Rwanda has made remarkable progress. It has one of the fastest growing economies in Central Africa and, surprisingly, has more women in parliament than any other country in the world.
