Driving Directions Rwanda
RWANDA is a small, landlocked republic in the heart of central Africa. Its predominant feature is a central high plateau with an average elevation of about 2,000 meters or 6,000 feet from which streams flow west to the River Congo and east to the River Nile.
High mountains rising to 4,507 meters or 14,786 feet dominate the north and west of the country sloping downwards to the basin of Lake Kivu on the western border. East of the plateau, the land drops downwards to a region of marshes and lakes surrounding the River Kagera.
