Northern corridor renews tourism bid

Rwanda, Kenya, and Uganda, that are part of the East African Community and whose three members constitute the Northern Corridor Integration Projects initiative are reviewing their joint tourism marketing programs.

The focus will be on attracting more international leisure and business visitors; continuing to position the East African region as a single tourism destination, drawing on the depth and diversity of the attractions within the region and offering an estimated 141 million people as an attractive market for investment.

Joint tourism marketing brings together the government and private sector agencies in charge of tourism marketing including Rwanda Development Board’s Department of Tourism and Conservation, Kenya Tourism Board and Uganda Tourism Board under the Northern Corridor Integration Projects Initiative.

Speaking during a press briefing in Kigali after a joint consultative meeting, Ambassador Yamina Karitanyi, the Chief Tourism Officer at the Rwanda Development Boards said that the partner states collectively considered issues like security, infrastructure and ease of access as central to ensuring domestic, regional and international visitors’ confidence in their personal safety and comfort when touring East Africa.

“We have pledged to continuously and actively promote the Northern Corridor states as a joint destination. Security and ease of access and tourist confidence remain a top priority for this destination.

As you know, we introduced the East Africa Tourism Visa last year and this already has had an impact. In addition to organizing joint events at fairs, we have organized travel trade and travel media trips for the groups to familiarize them with the offering.” she said.

Fiona Ngesa, Assistant Regional Marketing Manager at the Kenya Tourism Board indicated that the region remains a very safe destination for every tourist and that Kenya was addressing the security situation.

“We want to reassure our domestic, regional and international visitors that they will be safe and secure. We are open for business & we therefore encourage all to come & sample the diversity of our tourism products.”

Edwin Muzahura, the Marketing and PR Manager at the Uganda Tourism Board said “We are in a unique region that has a lot to offer and at least regionally, we are taking advantage of it.

There has been an increase in inter regional trade and tourism as a result of use of the interstate passes, the East Africa Tourism Visa and the IDs. Northern Corridor Initiative

Rwanda’s Tourism Sector grabbed massive Americans 2014

Posted on 16 April 2015 by peter

The United States is the largest contributor to Rwanda’s tourism revenues, accounting for 20% of the total revenue.

The immigration office says 1,220,000 visitors were received in 2014, compared to 1,122,000 visitors hosted in 2013, corresponding to a 9% increase (98,000 visitors).

In 2014, of the total number of visitors, 24,488 were Americans, followed by India with 13,008 visitors, then United Kingdom with 12,320, Belgium with 8,733, and 8,228 Germans on the fifth spot.

Rwanda Development Board (RDB) says the country generated$304.9 million in 2014 from tourism, compared to$293.6 million in 2013, representing an increase of 4%. These revenues increased from $62 million in 2000.

Apart from being the safest spot for vacation in Africa, wildlife sight-seeing, especially gorilla and bird watching, and conferences draw the biggest portion of the revenues. The country hosted 19,085 conference visitors, compared to 15,441 in 2013, earning $29 million.

Georgianne Nienaber, an American author and regular visitor to Rwandatold KTPress that “Americans realize thatRwanda is one of the safest places to vacation in Africa. More and more tourists will come.”

Rwanda's Tourism Sector grabbed massive Americans 2014

Tourists enjoy the variety of landscapes, the other wildlife, and especially the birds, Nienaber says. “Americans are big bird enthusiasts.”

Payments for gorilla permits accounted for 70% of this year’s tourism revenues worth$213.43 million, RDB says. A foreigner pays $750 to visit mountain gorillas.

Being home to two thirds of the world’s mountain gorillas aggressive conservation efforts in the last 10 years have helped breed 179 mountain gorilla infants, usually cerebrated and given names during the Kwita Izina ceremonies, inspired by the Rwandan baby naming tradition following the birth of a new baby.

Global figures such as Microsoft’s Bill Gates, Rick Warren have participated in the event.  Last year, over 500 international guests participated.

Meanwhile, the country targets generating $860 million from tourism by 2016, but analysts say the target is a little too ambitious and may not be attained due to different shortfalls, especially in the quality of services.

“When you look at Rwanda’s tourism growth in a regional perspective, a lot needs to be done,” said Joseph Opondo, a lecturer at Rwanda Tourism University.

“There should be more efforts in improving services like hospitality in different sectors of this country,” he said.

Les animaux du Parc de Nyungwe détruisent les champs de la population environnante

Ce ne sont que des herbivores qui, une fois en dehors du parc, se nourrissent des cultures

Dans la cellule Uwamusebeya, secteur Ruheru, les paysans qui habitent dans les environs du Parc National de Nyungwe se plaignent que les animaux sauvages appelés « Ibihinyage » ravagent leurs champs. Ils ont besoin d’être dédommagées pour leurs récoltes.

Comme l’explique Ndayisenga Fréderic, un des habitants de cette cellule, quand ces animaux ravagent leurs champs, ils en informent le SGF (Special Guarantee Fund), mais ce fond n’a encore rien fait.

« Ces animaux ont dévasté mes champs de maïs sur 180m et celui du sorgho sur 87m. J’ai fait une liste de tout ce qui a été abimé et je l’ai remise au District pour qu’on me rembourse. Mais, jusqu’à aujourd’hui rien n’a été fait », s’est indigné Ndayisenga.

Les paysans réclament une protection plus efficace contre ces animaux afin de les empêcher d’aller au-delà du parc. Ces mesures de protection ont déjà été faites par RDB dans deux autres parcs du pays. Il s’agit du Parc National de l’Akagera avec une clôture électrique d’une centaines de kilomètres et dans le mur en pierre construit dans le Parc National des Volcans.

Niyitegeka Félicien, adjoint du Chargé des Finances et du Développement dans le District de Nyaruguru rassure la population et promet que les discussions sont en cours  avec le RDB pour trouver ensemble une solution définitive à ces incidents et voir comment rembourser les victimes.

« Il va y avoir une collaboration entre les autorités du District et celles du secteur on va étudier ensemble toutes ces plaintes causées par ces animaux qui ont endommagé les champs pour que les victimes soient dédommagées », a rassuré Niyitegeka.

Ces problèmes provoqués par les animaux du parc ne se produisent pas seulement dans le secteur de Ruheru car même les habitants des Secteurs de Kivu, Muganza et Nyabimata, autour du ce parc ne cessent de se plaindre.

Why is Nyange memorial site in bad shape?

Why is Nyange memorial site in bad shape?

Families of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi victims in Nyange sector of Ngororero district are wondering why Nyange memorial site is in a poor condition.

“Us, whose relative’s remains lie in the Rukumberi memorial site, we are really sad. We would be delighted if this site was upgraded and put up to required standards,” said Donathile Mukandekezi, a genocide survivor from Nyange sector.

Why is Nyange memorial site in bad shape?

Nyange memorial site, where remains of at least 7,217  killed in the Genocide lie, is described by Jean d’Amour Niyosenga, president of IBUKA; an umbrella organization for genocide survivors in Ngororero district, as “historical site”, considering how the Genocide perpetrators used copters to chase Tutsis who attempted to find refuge in the area.

However, it had been revealed in 2014 by Jean De Dieu Mucyo, the president of the National Commission against genocide (CNLG) that it was due to misunderstandings between Nyundo catholic Diocese and Ngororero district concerning the site.

It was due to this revelation that Gideon Ruboneza, mayor of Ngororero district highlighted that the district entered into partnership with CNLG and the Diocese to construct to upgrade Nyanza memorial site.
