Rwanda Cultural Expeditions are so crucial because people play an equally essential role in the park as primates do. You may choose to visit any of the cultural centres in Rwanda as part of the top Rwanda cultural tours or cultural safaris. You can visit  the Gorilla Guardians Village (Iby’Iwacu Cultural Village), which is a non-profit organisation that aids the reformed poachers.

Gorilla Guardians Village

The culture of the Rwandan people spans many centuries. This culture has survived modernisation and is still practiced by several Rwandan societies. Numerous initiatives around the nation provide you the chance to interact with locals in a natural setting. In addition to seeing gorillas, monkeys, and other primates, you may stay with a host family and observe how they live their daily traditional lives. You can also visit museums to see how Rwanda’s history and culture are represented via dances, folklore, artisan weaving, etc.

These assist in ensuring a happy life through initiatives including providing clean water, health advice, agricultural support, and educational facilities for children who pursue education.  In order to provide the families with a source of income, a number of entrepreneurship projects have been created. These projects include basket weaving, community tourism, and arts and crafts work, which the families then sell to visitors so they may buy a souvenir.

The renowned SACOLA Cultural Centre is known for its amazing traditional Intore dance performances. In order to understand more about the diverse cultures and practises of Rwanda, you can also choose to participate in the Azizi life experience, a social enterprise that facilitates interactions between visitors and locals.  You will be able to experience a variety of things, and the longer you stay in the villages, the more adventure you will have and the more you will comprehend since you will have walked a mile in their shoes.

Small and home to many different cultures, Rwanda also provides cultural safaris and trips. You may visit Rwandan cultural places including Rwanda genocide memorials and Rwanda museums while on your gorilla safari in Rwanda.

Rwandan rituals, social gatherings, festivals, and storytelling all include traditional dance. Typically, a “orchestra” of drums and nine eager guys who give the rhythm accompany celebratory dances. The most well-known traditional dance in this region is called “Intore,” and it consists of three intricately planned parts: a ballet performed by ladies, a dance of heroes by men, and drums. Drummers normally perform in groups of seven or nine and are of utmost significance. A set of drums typically consists of two baritones, a tenor, an alto, two bass, two double bass, which are the largest drums, as well as the smallest drum, a soprano.
