    It is known to every one that African countries are blessed with diverse varity in flora and fauna.. It’s nice to experience that diversity of Rwanda, as a representative of Africa, with large varieties of animals, birds and trees..

    I agree with Jagriti that Rwanda is known for is dense nature and Kibira national park just proves that! The forest is absolutely dense no wonder wildlife around there is too much. Anyway,the park looks green and beautiful!
