Rwanda | Rwanda RDB to permit

Rwanda: RDB to permit people own wild animal zoos

Posted on 23 August 2012 by peter

Rwanda | Rwanda RDB to permitAfter fencing the Akagera National Park, for the first time in Rwanda the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) will accept for the people who want to keep wild animals and to bring animals that were rare in Rwandan national parks.

The fact that Akagera National Park is small compared to the animals that live in it and what to feed them caused many problems in the past like animals escaping from the park and destroying people’s crops and even killing people,  Télésphore Ngoga who is in charge of National Parks in RDB.

Ngoga went on to say that this problem is being fixed by fencing this national park and they will remain with only the animals that they can take care of and which will not destroy people’s crops or kill them.

Ngoga said that after fencing this national park, local people might get the authority to own some of the wild animals that used to be in this park. “If a person can pay to watch impala in the park, why can’t a person have a zoo of his/her own and see them instead of finding them in the park? Like in other countries where a person can have their parks with animals like antelopes, buffaloes, crocodiles and they are used to make a living.

Apart from giving local people authority to own animals, many other animal species will be brought to Rwanda like lions, rhinoceros and others. For this to be possible, people have to first accept and show willingness to rear wild animals and the government to make laws that will guide the process.

Rwanda ranks among African countries with potential ground for tourism growth

Rwanda : Rwanda ranks among African countries with potential ground for tourism growth

Posted on 17 August 2012 by peter

Rwanda ranks among African countries with potential ground for tourism growth

A Research firm-Euromonitor International has identified some African countries that are likely to see strong growth in tourism, and could possibly be lucrative destinations for investors in the tourism industry.

These countries are Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Tanzania. According to Euromonitor, Rwanda is emerging as a well-known destination on the world tourism map recording a 3% increase of inbound tourists in 2011 to reach 723,000.

In 2011, the majority of tourist arrivals came from other African countries. Arrivals from the African continent were led by the Democratic Republic of Congo(16.5%), followed by Uganda (13.5%) and Tanzania (7.4%). Rwanda’s core overseas markets include the US (3.6%), Belgium (2%) and the UK (1.5%).

According to Euromonitor, Rwanda is also ready to implement the East African Community single tourist visa, which will allow tourists to travel freely across the region.

Tourism is the largest foreign exchange earner with $251 million earned in 2011. The Rwanda Development Board (RDB) has revealed that for the first semester of 2012, Tourism revenues have increased by 11% compared to the same period last year in 2011. The tourism sector is estimated to have generated US $128.3m compared to US$115.6m generated in the same period last year.

One of the country’s most popular attractions is its mountain gorillas – which has attracted many tourists in the country and RDB has promoted the activity through the annual Gorilla Naming Ceremony (commonly known as Kwita Izina).

Rwanda is, however, trying to diversify its tourism offering, for example through the 150 metre high canopy walkway, the Congo Nile Trail and bird watching routes.

Rwanda : Visiting gorillas in Rwanda is safe as tourism booms

Posted on 05 August 2012 by peter

The Rwanda Development Board (RDB) has revealed that for the first semester of 2012, Tourism revenues have increased by 11% compared to the same period last year in 2011. The tourism sector is estimated to have generated US $128.3m compared to US$115.6m generated in the same period last year.

In addition, RDB wishes to inform and reassure tourists and the business community that it is safe to travel to the Volcanoes National Park in Northern Rwanda despite the on-going conflict in the neighbouring country of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Rica Rwigamba, Head of Tourism and Conservation at RDB said that Rwanda’s tourism progress is attributed to peace and security: “Visitor safety is guaranteed as usual. We would like to reassure visitors to Rwanda that it is business as usual here and that it is extremely safe and secure to travel to and within the country. In addition to the all-in-one experience in Rwanda from diverse wildlife in the national parks, to the magnificent scenery, amazing climate and the rare mountain gorillas; peace and security continues to be a magnetic pool for visitors in Rwanda.”

Rwanda also hosted an estimate of 493,744 visitors in the first semester 2012 corresponding to an increase of 22% compared to 2011 in the same period and recorded a remarkable 16% increase in leisure visitors as well as an 8% increase in business visitors.

In terms of investment promotion, in the first semester only (January to June), the Tourism sector has so far registered projects worth US$ 184.1m. These projects are expected to create 1,328 jobs.

Rica Rwigamba, Head of Tourism and Conservation at RDB said that “There was a noticeable increase in revenues, visits and value of registered tourism investments as well as projected jobs created in the first semester. We believe that if we continue to achieve as reflected by the results in the first semester, we will indeed surpass our targets and more importantly, this will drive growth and generate wealth for Rwandans.”

Rwanda’s  tourism and conservation efforts  are also reflected in the commitment to the contribution towards the communities’ welfare under the revenue sharing framework, RDB recently increased the price of gorilla permits to 750$ which will consequently also increase the contribution to the communities as well as the activities in conservation. Indeed, Rwanda places conservation and community development at the core of the sustainable tourism agenda.

In addition to the current room capacity of more than 6500 today, the government is encouraging more investment in accommodation facilities, hotels and restaurants in order to match the ever increasing visitors’ number.

Tourism is the largest foreign exchange earner with $251 million earned in 2011.

Hot springs can be a tourist

Innocent Harelimana an environment official in Rubavu district has said that if preserved well, hot springs found in Lake Kivu can be another tourist attraction.

According to Harelimana, the reason as to why no one goes to see these hot springs, little has been done to advertise and moderrnise where the hot springs are located

He says that apart from the springs being a tourist wonder, the water has been scientifically proven to heal muscle disorders and numerous other diseases.

According to a resident neighbouring one of the numerous hot springs found in Nyamyumba Sector, the place is a common sight of many people some and some are seen washing in the water which is believed to be relieving.

Harerimana says that if good care is taken for the springs, they are capable of earning money to the country. He adds that they have contacted the Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) and Rwanda Development Board (RDB), but they have not yet got any reply though field studies have been conducted.
