Rwanda Cultural tours

Rwanda Cultural tours

Our Rwanda cultural tours bring you closest to the indigenous people; learn about homestead set up, roles of each member in a family and community. Cultural ceremonies played a very big role in passing on vital hidden information to community members that each individual interpreted and reacted as a community expected of them. Way of dressing, body posture and mood was a language that could be interpreted and understood by all group members. However with increased population on a land through migrations, emigrations, intermarriages and mingling with other people, introduction of western education, the traditional Rwandan lifestyle has changed; the people are living a mixed and socially improved lifestyle.

Rwanda has a rich culture evidenced in the diversity of fine crafts and strong traditions. These include music and dance and a variety of arts and crafts. Sought after crafts include pottery, basketry, painting, jewelry, wood carving and metalwork.

The traditional set up which is not written down is getting diluted and on the verge of soon phasing out due to passing on of elders with this vital information. Our safaris to Rwanda are customized to grant you exceptional opportunity of interacting with many community model groups that are set up to conserve the authentic important values that are important for Rwandan identity. On Rwanda safari you will learn about the ways of survival of Rwanda people, community tools of use, hands on experiences on weaving lessons, preparations of sumptuous African dishes preparations, herbal medicine preparation and dosage, music, dance, storytelling experiences, cultural ceremonies like birth of twins, wedding and initiation of boys to adulthood dressing and many others which you can compare with your own at home and appreciate how Africans harnessed nature.

CULTURAL ATTRACTIONS IN RWANDA

If  you are planning to visit Rwanda with the hope of experiencing the local Rwanda Culture, you will get to learn the cultural practices of the indigenous people that are passed on from one generation to another through cultural ceremonies, language, stories, dressing style and history of the now abolished kingdom.

It is important to note that Rwanda is one of the most fascinating countries to visit in Africa. Whereas gorilla trekking is the most popular tourist attraction in Rwanda, the country is not all about apes. Rwanda is an excellent destination for mountain hiking, game drives, biking, nature walks and cultural tours.

Before the genocide in 1994, there were people who attempted to find distinctions between the Hutus, Tutsi and minority Twa. It was said that the Tutsi’s were mostly pastoralists while the Hutus where cultivators. Other distinctions were invented to help the Belgium colonialist govern the people but the reality is that the Tutsi and Hutu are essentially the same people. That becomes clear when you attempt to compare their looks, ways of life and culture to other tribal groups in the neighboring countries

Modernization, the introduction of the western culture, intermarriages and immigration has changed the lifestyle of the people of Rwanda. Many Rwandan nationals fled the country during the 1960’s and 1990’s to settle in neighboring countries. They now live a mixed lifestyle even after returning to the country. In an attempt to preserve the culture of the Banyarwanda, the government and individuals have invested in cultural sites that will remain a constant reminder of the important cultural norms and values of the people.

The Cultural attractions in Rwanda include visiting genocide memorial sites, cultural villages and artisan center. While visiting the cultural sites, expect to have close encounters with the people as watch traditional dance performances, folk songs and listen to stories about the former kingdoms. Some interesting cultural practices among the Banyarwanda include evening stories, riddles, folk-stories and proverbs which is organized close to a fireplace by the elderly. A mother would remain alone in the house for 7 days after giving birth. The cultural lock-down would only end after the child was given a name.
