 Places to Visit

 In Rwanda you can visit the Genocide Memorial Centers

The Nyamata Genocide Memorial which is complement to the Gisozi Memorial Centre in Kigali. Located in the town of Nyamata, 40 minutes south of Kigali on a newly paved road, the memorial is in a church where over 10,000 people were killed during the 1994 genocide.

The Ntarama Genocide Memorial just 20 minutes away from the Nyamata memorial, is also worth visiting. Like the Nyamata memorial, this site was a church before the genocide, and was nationalized to serve as a memorial after thousands of people were killed within its walls. The church itself is different than Nyamata, with victims' clothing eerily displayed from the rafters of the church as a grim reminder of what happened there.

You can also visit the Mountain Gorillas or visit the Nyungwe Forest, in the southwestern region of Rwanda, is one of Africa's oldest and largest protected mountain rainforest. It is home to one of the largest concentrations of chimpanzees and 12 other primate species.
