Ebola is one of the most dangerous diseases in the world which spreads through air. This disease has claimed very many life of people especially those from West Africa a thing that has negatively affected the tourism industries of almost all the countries on the continent. However, there are some visitors who cannot just be stopped by a disease outbreak and they cannot sacrifice their safaris to adventurous countries especially Rwanda where one experiences a lifetime feel.
To keep the country free from the deadly disease, the Rwandan government through its Ministry of Health has embarked on an exercise which will see all visitors being tested for Ebola at the airport before being allowed to continue with their safaris. All tourists with interests of entering this East African country are to be thoroughly checked for the deadly disease to avoid taking risks and also protect the local people.
With country nearing its annual tourism peak season in which the number of visitors rapidly increases, there have been worries that some visitors my unknowingly carry the Ebola virus to the country and many organs of the government came out and criticized the government for not taking action. This forced the Ministry of Health to come up with this new programme so as to protect both the tourists and the local people.
Rwanda is commonly known for its unique hard-to find tourism fraternities which are breathtaking and full of adventure. One of the leading activity carried out in the country hard to find elsewhere if mountain gorilla tracking. Many people from different countries travel to this East African country to view these interesting creatures in the rainforests of Volcanoes National Park. Also termed as “a land of thousand hills’ , Rwanda is covered with great natural wonders ranging from hills, plains, cultural wonders, wildlife experiences and many more. It is this reason that tourists are fond of this small country and actually one gets enticed to make repeated safaris to Rwanda simply because he/she can’t have enough of it.
