Things that you shouldn’t miss in Kibuye town

Things that you shouldn’t miss in Kibuye town

If you ever think of visiting or taking off a vacation to a tranquil and quite place anywhere in Rwanda, Kibuye town is one of the perfect spots that will be highly recommended.

Located in the Western Province of Rwanda, Kibuyetown is about two hour drive from the capital Kigali. The most interesting aspect about this town is that you will never get lost. The town is built on a single roundabout, arguably the biggest on the region, in that if all roads will lead you to the same place

The town lies on the eastern shore of Lake Kivu, about halfway down, and between Gisenyi and Cyangugu but is largely known for having touristic activities and being a serene place to be in touch with nature.

Surround by Lake Kivu from all angles, the town boasts of hotels, a golf course, a newly built environment museum and a beach. Gold Eden Rock, Bethany Hotel, Moriah Hill and Holiday Hotel are just but a few of the known hotels in the town.

The town is also known for being home to one of the rarest lake delicacies of baby fish – which is locally known as sambaza, found in Lake Kivu. The sambaza delicacies are one of the dishes served with locally made cassava flour and the taste of this meal is one the can only be experienced in person.

A boat ride is relatively cheap depending on the number of people on board, but it is recommended that you visit the Amahoro (peace) island where you will watch variety of birds, a domesticated monkey that can share a bottle of beer with the visitors to the amusement.

The Amahoro Island gives one a panorama view of the whole lake and some moments one thinks that they are going to cross the horizons from one planet to another. The perfect view of the sunset on this island is one of the magnificent views as the splash waters hit rocks towards the skyline.

Don’t miss visiting the Bisesero genocide memorial site, a place where Rwandans stood against the genocidaires refusing to divide the community in to Tutsi’s and Hutus during the 1994 genocide memorial.

Here, over 4000 residents had gathered on top of Muyira Hill with stones and spears ready to defend themselves. Mortar 81s and 82s faced the hill letting loose the gigantic bullets as the interahamwe extremists rose up the hill. At the same time the Bisesero Tutsis were aware they had been attacked – upon anyone who tried to go up to the top they would throw stones and spears in defense.

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.

Secrets in the presidential palace at Kanombe

Secrets in the presidential palace at Kanombe

Posted on 30 October 2014 by peter

Secrets in the presidential palace at Kanombe

Some people know former president Juvenal Habyarimana’s residence as from July 5, 1973 to April 6, 1994 and Habyarimana himself as the man behind the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi.

Visiting the palace that is located two kilometres from Kigali International Airport, the former presidential palace in Kanombe is tale of opulence, but also a secret cult of African voodoo and self-destruction.

One of the things that many Rwandans don’t know, until they get a guided tour of the palace, is that Habyarimana used to have a sacred voodoo shrine next to the his private chapel.

According to guides, Habyarimana was a staunch catholic but he always turned to the sacred voodoo shrine to get answers to his leadership and future. Many Rwandans at the time only used to hear about it in rumors that their president was voodoo worshipper.

The kind of mindset is seen in one of his greatest possessions, the python- which was believed to be at least 6 metres or more, that had a special pool under a mahogany tree in his compound.

The mystery of Habyarimana’s death may be explained by forensic evidence, but the fact that his plane landed exactly near the pool habiting his pet snake, which many believed possessed his magical powers, is one of the things that will make you wonder if he didn’t fall out of favor with his voodoo practices.

Like many presidential suits, the palace has an inbuilt armory where it is said Habyarimana kept his arms. But the difference is that the armory was one of the secret rooms in the palace, situated inside the bedroom of his sons, who might not have known about its existence.

The only way to the armory was through a secret door, which could be accessed through the president’s bedroom and incase of any attack he would disappear through the kids room and the enemy wouldn’t even think of it.

The debris for the Falcon 50 presidential plane that went down on 6th April 1994 is also on display at the museum in its original form since the accident.

Apparently the palace has turned into a tourist attraction and a source of historical information and study for Rwandans today.

Youngsters use the palace tennis court and a swimming pool for extra curricula activities and many Rwandans have used the beautiful gardens for wedding events and relaxation.

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.

Rwanda, Uganda partner in tourism development

Posted on 16 October 2014 by peter

In its commitment to promote East Africa as a single Tourism destination, Uganda has partnered with Rwanda to jointly promote two -way tourism traffic; between the two sister-countries.

Speaking during the a tourism training conference at Serena Hotel-Kigali, Louise Mushikiwabo, Rwanadan Minister for Foreign Affairs said the move which was championed by the Uganda.

Tourism Board in partnership with the Rwandan Development Board is purposed to defend both the security and business developments of the two countries.

“People to people relations between Uganda and Rwanda is a very important step to strengthening the tourism sectors of the two economies-both of which come as their country’s biggest revenue earners, contributing over $1b to either country.”

Mushikiwabo said while addressing over 5,000 celebrants including Ugandan fraternity in Rwanda, High Commissioners and friends of Uganda in Rwanda.

According to Stephen Asiimwe, UTB Chief Executive Officer, under the merger, the two countries will have healthy tourism exchanges whenever marketing opportunities such as tourism marts and expos arise in the two countries and the Great Lakes Region in general.

As a result, social-economic problems such unemployment will be effectively addressed because Tourism is the world’s biggest employer, employing at least one of every ten people in its various sub-sectors such as Roads and Transport, Hotel and accommodation among others.

To aid in this realization, Uganda’s High Commissioner to Rwanda, Richard Kabonero said Rwanda will with immediate effect start by stamping out hindrances that have over the years suffocated a healthy business exchange between the two countries such as the border to border bureaucracies.

According to Edwin Muzahura, Head of Marketing UTB, the board’s choice for Rwanda was highly influenced by the fact that no other country in the region feeds Uganda with as much tourists as Rwanda.
