Kigali- Clean City

Le Rwanda choisi parmi les 15 meilleures destinations touristiques en 2015

Posted on 20 January 2015 by peter

Les routes de Kigali sont éclairées, les trottoirs carrelés, les espaces verts partout….

« Condé Nast Traveler », le magazine Britannique de luxe et voyage (UK Luxury and Lifestyle Travel Magazine) a révélé que malgré le génocide contre les Tutsi  en 1994, le gouvernement rwandais est parvenu à reconstruire le pays et le tissu social.

Les  touristes qui se comptent par milliers et qui augmentent chaque viennent au Rwanda pour decouvrir le pays des Mille Collines. Le Rwanda a réhabilité ses parcs nationaux de la savane et de hautes altitudes  et voir les gorilles de montagnes, les lacs, Kigali la capitale du Rwanda. Le Rwanda s’est doté aussi des Musées à travers le pays et le nombre de visiteurs ne cesse d’augmenter.

A voir la propreté, l’environnement et la décoration de la Ville de Kigali, les visiteurs n’hésitent pas à qualifier Kigali de « la plus propre ville africaine ». Selon Caroline Anne, une volontaire anglaise, « c’est une ville propre comme Paris, c’est une ville sûre, où les blancs puissent vivre tranquillement. Si la Reine venait à Kigali, de l’aéroport jusqu’à l’Hôtel Serena, elle ne peut pas croire qu’elle est dans un pays en voie de développement, elle peut penser qu’elle dans un pays riche », a-t-elle souligné.

Kerry Gill, un autre volontaire a quant lui été impressionné de voir  « une ville africaine, où l’on ne peut pas voir les ordures, les cadavres des chats et des chiens le long des routes de la ville ».

Raison pour laquelle le Rwanda a mis en place une stratégie pour générer 150 millions de dollars par an en provenance des conférences internationales en 2015, alors qu’il gagne actuellement 49 millions de dollars.

Même les jeunes Rwandais qui étudient à l’étranger reviennent chaque année pour passer une période de trois semaines pour apprendre la culture de l’hygiène et de l’auto-dépendance.

Aujourd’hui, Murekatete, balayeuse de la route dans les sociétés qui s’occupent de la propreté dans la ville de Kigali, résidant à Kimihurura, banlieue de Kigali, a encore des souvenirs de la façon dont les citadins y compris même les intellectuels, ignoraient l’hygiène, jusqu’en 1990.

Joselyne Murekatete, âgée  de 40 ans, se rappelle de son premier jour à l’école où elle a été punie par son enseignant parce qu’elle portait les souliers. Les chaussures étaient interdites à cette époque. « Dès lors, j’enlevais mes souliers à quelques mètres de l’école pour éviter les réprimandes ». L’enseignant ne voulait pas que les autres qui n’en avaient pas soient jaloux et ceux qui en avaient pouvaient les porter après les cours.

Quel est le secret du Rwanda pour devenir de plus en plus un pays attrayant ?

Apres le génocide contre les Tutsis en 1994, le Rwanda est qualifié de «  nouveau pays » avec un « nouveau peuple ». Actuellement, dans les établissements scolaires, l’hygiène et l’assainissement, le port des chaussures etc. sont obligatoires. Après avoir stoppé le génocide, le Front Patriotique Rwandais(FPR) a travaillé sur le développement de la société rwandaise, en impliquant les citoyens dans la prise de décisions. Le jour des travaux communautaires « Umuganda », les connaissances indigènes et les pratiques traditionnelles ont été renforcées.

Chaque dernier samedi du mois, toutes les activités  socio-économiques sont suspendues de 8h à 10h pour permettre les habitants de faire Umuganda à un site donné. Les autorités et même les visiteurs participent tous à ces travaux. Après, ils se rassemblent pour discuter sur la politique actuel du pays, les projets du village, les problèmes du village et les travaux du mois suivant. « Quand les citoyens sont impliqués dans un programme, ils réussissent sans contraints », affirme Omar Khalfan, professeur de sciences politiques à l’Université du Rwanda.

Kigali- Clean City

Clean Kigali Street. Condé Nast Traveler a UK based luxury and lifestyle travel magazine has included Rwanda among the top 15 picks for where to go in 2015. The magazine says Rwanda is the place to travel due to beautiful high-altitude forests, its lakes, and Kigali, its capital city.

En plus de l’Umuganda, la ville de Kigali a adopté un système de collecte des déchets des ménages et dans des lieux publics. Il y a des compagnies privées qui disposent de camions qui balaient les routes toute la nuit. Par exemple, pour nettoyer 200 km, la Ville de Kigali a signé des contrats avec 15 coopératives utilisant plus de 400 employés plus démunis et à majorité des femmes, avec une somme de 44,000$.

« Nous nous félicitons de notre contribution comme tous les autres Rwandais. Ça fait partie du patriotisme », a dit Jeanine Mukashema, une balayeuse dans la ville de Kigali. Rappelons que le Patriotisme fait partie de la devise du Rwanda, appart l’Unité et le Travail.

« Dans moins de 10ans, nous n’avons plus de sachets en plastique sur notre sol, les Rwandais  sont très actifs », s’est félicité le Dr. Charles Kabwete, un analyste politique.

Les poubelles sont aussi placées long des routes pour éviter le désordre des déchets. Ces poubelles ont été placées par les entreprises privées qui faisaient les publicités de leurs activités. Différentes activités commerciales, les bureaux, les marchés, et  les établissements scolaires ont engagé les entreprises (compagnies)  de nettoyage.

Ces entreprises de nettoyage  demandent 7 $ par mois depuis 2010 pour évacuer  les sacs de déchets dans le ménage. Selon Jean Paul Ngenzi, propriétaire d’Agruni, une compagnie de nettoyage, dans les pays occidentaux, la collection des déchets reste une affaire de l’Etat.

Jeter les ordures par terre est comme un pêché, même les enfants le savent. Traverser illégalement les espaces verts le long des routes ou uriner non pas dans des toilettes publiques est strictement interdit, dans le cas contraire une amende de 7$. Heurter le palmier se trouvant au milieu de l’autoroute est 700$ tout comme le poteau de l’éclairage public.

Rwanda eyes heritage to boost tourism

“Economic benefits of heritage tourism include creating new jobs and businesses, increasing tax revenues, and diversifying the local economy” remarks Minister Francois Kanimba.

The Minister also pointed out that, those economic benefits are not the only reason why heritage tourism may be good for your community—“it has quality-of-life benefits as well”.

”Heritage tourism helps preserve your town’s unique character, which results in greater civic pride. Residents benefit too! There are more opportunities available such as shops, activities, and entertainment offerings that the local market alone might not be able to support”, said Minister Kanimba.

What is Heritage Tourism?

Heritage Tourism refers activities and services which provide international and domestic visitors with the opportunity to experience, understand and enjoy the special values of a region’s heritage, are sometimes referred to as heritage tourism.

‘Heritage’ and ‘Culture’ have become interchangeable and elastic terms. In the context of the arts for example, the use of the term culture relates to how a society’s history, beliefs, values, traditions and icons are manifested in an artistic format. The term often embraces Indigenous and natural culture, depending upon the perspective of the proponent.

Heritage tourism occupies a significant proportion of the ‘cultural tourism’ spectrum, and while it often overlaps with and links to other tourism product, the historic or human dimensions considerably inform and shape all parts of the spectrum. In this sense, heritage provides an ‘overarching’ component or common thread for many tourism products in a country or localized area.

Tourism remains at the top of the country’s foreign exchange earners and has retained a share of international business while the country’s opportunities to grow its tourism services are immense, ranging from hosting meetings and conferences, tapping into religious and cultural experiences, taking advantage of its eco and national parks and expanding water and leisure sports.

Rwanda has since invested in the convention bureau and other infrastructure and is seeking investors for spa and golf resort hotels along Lake Kivu and a cable car system on the slopes of the Volcanoes National Park. In addition, a new cultural village will be set up in Kigali to showcase a spectrum of the nation’s heritage in one setting.

Within the framework of implementing the National Sustainable Tourism Master Plan which is among the highlights of the Government seven year plan, the Minister of Trade and Industry, Francois Kanimba chaired a validation workshop on the dubbed “Heritage Corridor Tourism Sub-Master Plan connecting Kigali to the Nyungwe National Park”.

The study was commissioned in collaboration with Rwanda Development Board and aims to transform this region into a competitive tourists’ destination in Rwanda.

Tourist visa fees scrapped

Posted on 24 December 2014 by peter

Tourist visa fees scrapped

Rwanda, Kenya and Uganda have waived visa fees for foreign residents to allow easy access to the region’s diverse tourism experience.

According to Yamina Karitanyi, the Rwanda Development Board’s Head of Department for Tourism and Conservation, the waiver was agreed on under the Northern Corridor Integration projects initiative.

Known as the East Africa Tourist Visa (EATV), foreign residents no longer have to pay the $100 fee for the visa that is valid for 90 days effective December 15, 2014.

Karitanyi, said the waiver on the single East Africa Tourist Visa was the next step in consolidating and enriching the region’s tourism potential.

“We are approaching the rest of the world as a unified and rich tourist destination with varied experiences for travellers. We are also positioning East Africa’s tourism assets collectively as part of the Northern Corridor Integration Projects,” Karitanyi said at the weekend.

She added that joint marketing programmes will be carried out annually and will cover road shows such as the International Tourism Board (ITB) and World Travel Market (WTM) in 2015.

She pointed out that going forward, the partner states will lobby for a single stand during international tourism marketing events.

Outlining the modalities of implementation, Karitanyi said eligible foreign residents shall be issued with inter state pass on exiting the host state and visitor’s pass endorsed in their passports on arrival by presenting valid work/resident permits.

Other immigration procedures and regulations will, however, be maintained.
In preparing for the joint marketing programmes, she noted that the partner states were already gearing up the teams involved by conducting destination training workshops and disseminating information on the use of national identity cards, student/voters cards and the East Africa Tourist Visa.

“We encourage the private sector to take advantage of this opportunity to offer unbeatable packages while maximising win-win offers.”

The just concluded 8th Northern Corridor Integration Summit attended by Presidents; Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, Paul Kagame, and Yoweri Museveni of Uganda, held in Nairobi last week, also directed Rwanda’s Minister of Infrastructure to convene a meeting of Airline Industry stakeholders and finalise negotiations on the 5th Freedom Traffic Rights on Entebbe-Nairobi-Juba-Nairobi meant to address outstanding issues to reduce the cost of air travel in the region and report to the next Summit that will be held in Kigali.

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge Named Among Top 100 Hotels and Resorts in the World

Posted on 02 November 2014 by peter

According to the Cond

According to the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2013, Sabyinyo was recognized on the top list of Conde Nast Top Hotels in the world placing the lodge 19th on the Top 100 Hotels & Resorts in the World—in the Conde Nast Readers’ Choice Awards 2014.

 

The Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge is a luxury lodge that has been built right on the edge of the Volcanoes National Park.

 

Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge has the rightful incentives as a destination needed to boost tourism in Rwanda in the areas of leisure and adventure.

 

Rwanda is investing in Infrastructure and other tourism facilities to meet the growing demand for accommodation to secure the sector.

 

From the deep veranda of any of the eight chalets outfitted in warm hues and African materials, you can see the mist-shrouded hills made famous by the late zoologist Dian Fossey.

 

On one side are the slopes of Sabyinyo, one of five inactive volcanoes in the park, making this the first high-end lodging in an area that, along with the adjoining parks in Uganda and Congo, is the last refuge of the endangered mountain gorilla.

 

The property, owned by a community trust and run by Governors’ Camp in Kenya, is a special hybrid of safari lodge and small hotel—with the best elements of both good taste, deluxe bathrooms, attentive staff.

 

In the ranch-style main building, with its sweeping views, there’s a dining room with a menu that aims for haute.

 

Fireplaces in both public and private spaces are for those cold, mosquito-less evenings that follow a muddy day in the park, wandering behind your guide to see one of the gorilla troops.

 

Tourism has been gradually rebounding abreast with emerging ventures that complement the country’s natural riches, including the much-anticipated Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge are what the country needs.

 

Sabyinyo is also ranked number 4 in top 20 safari lodges and camps in Africa in the very prestigious Conde Nast Readers Choice among others.

Nyabihu: Rwanda’s Gishwati Forest elevated to national park status

Nyabihu: Rwanda’s Gishwati Forest elevated to national park status

Posted on 29 October 2014 by peter

With Rwanda’s keen interest to promote and maintain eco-tourism as one of the pillars of the national economy it was long expected that Gishwati will eventually join the Nyungwe Forest as a new national park, incidentally part of a deal struck between President Kagame and the founder of the Great Ape Trust Ted Townsend some years ago and now become a reality

The law that elevated Gishwati-Mukura into a national park was approved during the cabinet meeting that was held on October 15, led by H.E Paul Kagame.

The law that elevated Gishwati-Mukura into a national park was approved during the cabinet meeting that was held on October 15, led by H.E Paul Kagame.

The creation of a Gishwati Forest National Park has been a long awaited event and serves to underscore constantly voiced sentiments, that a committed and enlightened government can in fact change the future of a country for the better without trampling on its environment, destroying biodiversity and unsustainable exploitation of the natural resources.

Nyabihu district administration is excited about the cabinet approval to elevate Gishwati forest to a national park following its geographical location and tourist attractions.

Angela Mukaminani, vice-mayor for economic affairs in Nyabihu district disclosed that they are happy over the decision to make Gishwati a national park.

Understandably this development has been kept under wraps for a longer time.

“We informed Rwanda Development Board (RDB) about the tourist attractions of Gishwati. Many hills, farmlands and forests that attract the attention of people,” she said.

Gishwati has numerous hills that attract tourists

Nyiraminani added that guest houses and hotels are being set up to accommodate the growing number of tourists, saying it will promote investment and increase the economy of the district and the country at large.

Beautiful terraces made on the agriculture section in Gishwati are eye catching

Before 1994 Tutsi genocide, Gishwati forest had 280 acres per km2 but after the 1994  Tutsi genocide many Rwandan who returned from DRC settled on one part of the forest reducing its size to 7acres per square kilometer.

In a bid to restore Gishwati to its former glory, The Gishwati Area Conservation Program (GACP) began in 2007 with the collaboration of Rwandan president, Paul Kagame, and Great Ape Trust to protect the biodiversity of the Gishwati Forest area and stop some of the rapid degradation.

In the process of protecting the biodiversity of the forest, it was divided into three parts for cultivation, livestock farming and forestry. This resolved the problem of soil erosion that had been caused by the population.

Gishwati makes the biggest part of Nyabihu, Ngororero, Rubavu and Rutsiro district.
