Rwanda launches ‘Bucket List Rwanda’ Travel Packages exclusively for Middle Eastern residents

Posted 26 April 2018 · Add Comment

The Rwanda Development Board, Rwanda’s governmental organisation responsible for promoting Rwanda’s tourism initiatives abroad, has launched luxury and weekend getaway packages, which have been exclusively tailored for residents of the Middle East.

Two “Bucket List Rwanda” packages are on offer including a luxury package that highlights 2 nights stay in a luxury mountain lodge with 1 day mountain Gorilla trekking tour, helicopter transfers, 2 nights stay at a 5 Star hotel in the capital city Kigali, and complimentary private tour to Kigali’s Artisan Shopping Centre and Kigali Museum. The second package is a 3 night Long Weekend Getaway, including 1 night in a 4 star resort in the Nyungwe Forest with Canopy Walk and Primates encounter, and 2 nights at a 4 Star Kigali hotel with complimentary private tour to Kigali’s Artisan shopping Centre and Kigali Museum. 

Another tourist experience highlighted in the promotional packages as an optional tour is the possibility to take part in rural community service activities.

The Rwandan national programme known as ‘Umuganda’ means ‘coming together in common purpose’. It is held on the last Saturday of each month, from 8am to 11am. During this day, people across the country aged from 18 to 65 come together and contribute to the building of their country.

The concept is related to the idea of solidarity and a communal sense of living, and all over the country one can see people participate in cleaning streets, cutting grass and trimming bushes along roads, or repairing public facilities and building houses for vulnerable people. A result of these activities is that Rwanda is one of cleanest countries in Africa. International tourists are also encouraged to join locals in this unique and fulfilling community experience, with special tours arranged for this purpose.

Belise Kariza, chief tourism officer, Rwanda Development Board said: “We understand that the people residing in the Middle East are well travelled. From today it’s our mission to have Rwanda included in their travel bucket lists by offering something new, meaningful and inspirational coupled with a plethora of cultural, natural, and soft adventure experiences not to be enjoyed anywhere else.”
