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.

Things that you shouldn’t miss in Kibuye 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.

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).
