According to wholevehicles, Rwanda is a small landlocked country located in central Africa. It is bordered by the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Tanzania and Burundi. The country has an area of 26,338 square kilometers and is divided into four provinces: Northern Province, Southern Province, Eastern Province and Western Province. The topography of Rwanda is dominated by its mountainous terrain. The highest peak in the country is Mount Karisimbi which stands at 4,507 meters above sea level. Other mountain ranges include the Virunga Mountains which straddle the border between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo as well as the Burera Range which lies close to the Rwandan capital Kigali. The lowlands are found in the western part of the country where two large lakes – Lake Kivu and Lake Rweru – can be found. These lakes are part of a chain of six major African Great Lakes that form part of both Rwanda’s and neighboring countries’ borders. The climate in Rwanda varies depending on altitude but generally it has a temperate tropical climate with two rainy seasons from February to June and from September to December respectively. Average temperatures range between 15°C (59°F) – 25°C (77°F). Much of Rwanda’s terrain consists of grassland savanna with some areas being covered by thick forestation due to its high levels of rainfall throughout most parts of the year. Rwanda’s population is estimated at just over 12 million people with most living in rural areas around the capital city Kigali which itself has a population estimated at 1 million people. The official language spoken in Rwanda is Kinyarwanda but English and French are also widely spoken throughout much of the country as well as Swahili in some areas near its borders with Tanzania and Burundi respectively.
