The East African nation of Rwanda has metamorphosed into a country of stability and prosperity. Although most famous for gorilla tracking excursions in the bamboo forests of the Vicuna volcanoes, it has much more to offer. It earned the nickname "Land of a Thousand Hills" because of its lush green mountains.
Kigali is the capital city of Rwanda, well known for its beauty and quaint charm. It is one of the cleanest cities in Africa. Umuganda is a universal service that takes place once a month when people work on community projects such as keeping the streets clean, tending to gardens and helping neighbors. Additionally, plastic bags are banned in Rwanda.
