Genocide Memorial, road transfer to Volcanoes National Park and afternoon Cultural Photography.
Following an early morning breakfast, we will visit the Genocide Memorial, which commemorates the victims and families of the 1994 genocide, a dark era in this little country’s past. This visit will answer any questions which you may have on what took place and led up to this sad event, but mostly I hope that it will make you appreciate where this remarkable little country finds itself today.
Hereafter we will start our two-and-a-half-hour journey to our beautiful accommodation for the remainder of our stay in Rwanda. The smooth tarmac road winds its way through neatly cultivated farms, along the banks of meandering rivers and lush green valleys to Rwanda’s Northern Province. This is volcano country and home to the critically endangered Mountain Gorillas of the Virunga, a chain of eight volcanoes that make up the Virunga Massif. Following our arrival, settling into our accommodation and lunch, we will visit one of the nearby cultural villages for a two-hour exclusive photo excursion.
