Off-limits for years due to the 1994 genocide, Rwanda has slowly opened up to tourism and in recent years has grown as a top emerging destination in Africa. The hospitality industry came a long way and now offers an eclectic mix of eco-lodges, boutique hotels and 5 stars hotel either family owned and run or, especially in the capital city Kigali, part of international groups. Choice and quality of accommodations vary a lot according to the region. The area of Volcanoes National Park, the most famous and visited park in Rwanda, has attracted major investments and offers quite a wide choice of accommodations, including some luxury eco-lodges such as Sabyinyo Silverback and Virunga. Throughout the rest of the country the choice is more limited and quality standards are generally lower.
