Things to see on this Rwanda map

Firstly, note the scale in the bottom-left of the map: Rwanda is relatively small – it covers less than half the area of Scotland! Because of this, it's generally fairly easy and quick to get around!

See also that Kigali, the capital and main gateway to the country, is roughly in the centre; effectively it forms something of a hub, and often to travel from one area to another, you'll travel through Kigali.

In the north-east of the country, you'll see the blue marker for the Volcanoes National Park. This is often known by its French name, Parc National des Volcans, and this is the area where the country's famous gorilla safaris take place.

To dig deeper for much closer views of the various areas and national parks, click onto any of the markers. Then follow the links inside the bubbles, for maps of these areas with precise locations for the various safari camps, lodges and hotels.
