Prediction: Rwanda will become the new Croatia.
Reason: Mountains, gorillas, and a stark decrease in violence will make this long-shunned African nation the next hot spot.

As people look to ever-more exotic destinations, more airlines will fly to Kigali and upscale lodges (paging Richard Branson) will start looking seriously at property.
