Travelers visiting Rwanda will only tell back home stories of the robust, courageous and quite amazing mountain gorillas in the north, the beautiful scenery of Akagera national park – home to the big five or the stories of traditional culture of Rwandan dancers, leave alone canopy walkway in the Southern province, just to mention some samples in the country’s heavy tourism package.
