A night in God’s bedroom.

🔥🔥Holiday In God’s Bedroom💥💥

You ask me the most interesting thing to do in Rwanda. My answer is a simple interacting with Rwandese, dancing their dances, eating their food, listening to their stories, helping in their farms. They are the most humble, happy, welcoming and loving people in the whole world. I won’t tell you Rwanda has the most beautiful ladies in the planet. You will see it for yourself.  Rwandese is are full of laughter and fun. Get talking with Rwandese and you find you have forgotten your troubles. You just want to stay with them. That said I am wondering why you cant take a guide to keep you company and show you around.

Everything in Rwanda is interesting. The country is beautifully crafted, hills upon green hills cover the whole county. It’s soo beautiful. It’s the God’s bedroom. Rwandese believe that God spends the day roaming the world but retires to sleep in Rwanda. Driving is a real challenge as roads are series of sharp almost circular beds. Whether you book our car or go with someone else I would love to hear your opinion on Rwanda. 

Kigali (voted the cleanest green city in the world) an interesting artistic modern city  alone has lots of hidden gems to keep you busy. Lots of specialty restaurants featuring international and local  cuisine,   colourful markets cultural centres, curio shops. Top in the list of places to visit in Kigali is the Genocide Memorial of Gisozi where you learn the history of Rwanda from pre colonial to present day with emphasis on the making genocide. For more history in founding of the modern Rwanda visit the Richard Khadt’s Museum and the recently opened Presidential Palace. Even more interesting is the Muslim quarter of Nyamirambo. 

Gorilla Trekking is the undisputed number one attraction in Rwanda. Personally I put Nyungwe Forest as the number one in uniqueness. Here is the source of the River Nile and an encounter with our closest relatives – the chimpanzees. On the way to Nyungwe visit the King’s palace in Nyanza (Huye) and the Museum of Butare. Butare too hosts the National University, a beautiful cathedral and a botanical garden. Here too you find an important handcraft factory. 

Another not to miss in Rwanda are the lakeside resorts of Kibuye and Rubavu (Gisenyi) with boat rides and visits to the islands. 

There are lots of amazing things to see and do in Rwanda. You cannot exhaust them within your 8 days. Volcanoes Park alone offers lots of hiking opportunities. Besides gorilla Trekking you can hike the Volcanoes of Bisoke, Karisimbi or visits the red colobus monkeys. In the vicinity are lakes Burela and Ruhondo with unique cultural tourism program. 

I hope my explanation will help you to make decisions of what to do.
