A visit to the Iby’Iwacu Cultural Village in nearby Kinigi gives guests the special chance to spend time with exceptionally welcoming local communities and to experience their traditional lifestyle and culture. Ancient traditions of honour and hospitality run strong here, and anybody who takes the time to discover Rwandan culture for themselves will find a proud and unique people, very happy to welcome you into their lives and introduce you to their traditions.

Here guests can enjoy local-guided walks and home visits, displays of traditional dance and song, and fascinating stories told by proud and enthusiastic folk. Visitors can engage in pottery making lessons and shouldn’t leave the village without having had a taste of local food and locally brewed banana beer.
