About this book

Language: English

Want to gaze into the eyes of a mountain gorilla, or marvel at the almost-human antics of chimps? Have you dreamed of seeking out the mysterious endemic birds of the Albertine Rift Mountains? Are you looking for a destination that is still firmly African, but is completely different from the normal "safari circuit"? If so, then Rwanda is your destination, and Wild Rwanda will guide you to the best natural sites in this gem of a country. Despite its tragic past, the Rwanda of today is one of Africa's safest, cleanest, and most stable countries.

A far cry from the dull, text-heavy site guides of the past, Wild Rwanda is copiously illustrated with over 160 spectacular photos that show the region's beautiful landscapes, mammals, and birds. There are detailed maps, full chapters on biogeography and trip planning, a specialties section covering the region's best mammals and birds, and indexed species lists. Wild Rwanda is concerned not only with guiding you to the species that you want to find, but also with enriching your understanding of Rwanda. Even someone with no interest in travel with enjoy this glimpse into the mountainous heart of Africa. And Wild Rwanda is indispensible for anyone planning or considering a trip to Rwanda, whether you are spending a couple of days tracking mountain gorillas, or weeks seeking out the country's avian riches.
