Rwanda, the Land of a Thousand Hills, is famed for its mountain gorillas and as the setting for the film Gorillas in the Mist. Fifteen years on from the tragic genocide of 1994, this compact country is rapidly emerging as one of Africa's most exciting ecotourism destinations, boasting three diverse national parks.
