Rwanda has no railways but is linked by road to the Uganda-Kenya railway system. Most of Rwanda's imports and exports are routed through the port of Mombasa, Kenya.

Mountain Gorillas

About half of the world's mountain gorillas are estimated to live in the Virunga Mountains of northern Rwanda.

Dr. Dian Fossey set up a fund in 1978 to study mountain gorillas and protect them from poachers. This dedicated work eventually cost the American zoologist her own life.


The capital of Rwanda is situated in the centre of the country, just south of the equator. Its altitude of 1,829 m. gives the city a mild climate all year round.

A trunk road connects Kigali with Burundi to the south and Uganda to the north.

Kigali was part of German East Africa from 1899 to 1916. After Word War I Belgium were given a mandate over the Territory of Ruanda-Urundi.

When the trust territory was divided in 1962 to form the independent nations of Rwanda and Burundi, Kigali became the capital of Rwanda.
