Day 1: Arrive in Kigali, Transfer to Musanze
Upon arrival in Kigali, our guide will pick you to start off your 5 days Rwanda cultural tour with a visit to one of the genocide memorial sites in Rwanda, the Ntarama Church, where mass killings occurred during the 1994 genocide.
After, we will then proceed to Nyamata Church, where a further 2,500 people were massacred during the genocide. The church is also closely associated with the barbaric treatment of women during the genocide, and you’ll learn more about the incidences of mass rape, brutalization, and even the horrific use of HIV as a weapon of genocide.
You’ll then be taken on a guided tour of the Reconciliation Village, learning about how the healing process between victims and perpetrators is taking place. You’ll then have lunch with the locals before continuing your tour of the Reconciliation Village with visits to facilities such as the school and health centre, the local plantations, and an art gallery. After your busy day of discovery, you’ll continue on to Musanze to overnight.
