Rwanda's tourism revenue reached $445 million in 2022, an increase of 171.3% from the previous year.
Gorilla trekking alone generated $113 million, according to the Rwanda Development Board (RDB).
The country attracted about 110,000 visitors to its national parks in 2022, an increase of 142.4% compared to 2021.
“We have also seen a 40.5% increase in total goods and services revenue in 2022. This is a sign of positive movement in the economy, despite the disruption to global supply chains,” said Clare Akamanzi, director RDB overview.
The RDB added that Rwanda aims to increase tourism revenue to $800 million by 2024.
