Cultural Safaris in Rwanda Travel Guide – Deks Safaris & Tours

Rwanda is home to three ethnic groups that collectively exemplify the country’s history, traditions, and hospitality. Deks Safaris recommends taking some time during your Rwanda cultural safaris adventure to visit local communities and learn about the traditional Rwandan way of life. The largest group in the country is the Tutsi, followed by the Hutu and the Twa. Expect charming and captivating folk tales, riddles, and proverbs as you interact with the Tutsis. While among the Hutu, you can witness a unique ceremony that takes place when a new baby is born in a village. The mother and the newborn are left alone at home for seven days. On the last day, there is a naming ceremony where the children of the village join the mother and child. The Twa are a pygmy people known for their pottery, semi-nomadic, and hunter-gatherer lifestyles.

More About Rwanda Cultural Safaris Tour Adventures

Deks Safaris specializes in culturally sensitive cultural safaris to Rwanda villages, developed in collaboration with community members, allowing guests to observe everyday life in a way that does not undermine the authenticity of the experience. The villagers themselves offer insights into the traditions and beliefs they wish to share with the world through these tours, as well as areas of life they would rather just share.

You will be surprised and moved by the Rwandans’ commitment to maintaining their ancestral way of life while living in a modern world. These Rwanda cultural safaris benefit the villages, including Ibyiwacu and Banda, as the activities create jobs, often instead of poaching or other desperate ways of earning a living, as well as funds for health care, education, and ultimately hope for the future.

Visitors to these villages experience the sense of community that unites the people of Rwanda and ensures the future preservation of Rwanda’s traditions, wildlife, and nature. Our like-minded guests often describe these tribal interactions as the most significant and life-changing aspect of their Rwanda cultural safaris tour vacation.

Not only will you bring with you a newfound knowledge of the people of Rwanda, but also a deep appreciation for their contribution to conservation. By sharing their talents, ideas, and time, they contribute to our understanding of how to balance the needs of the people with those of the flora and fauna of Rwanda.

Best Selling Rwanda Safaris Tour Packages Combined with Traditional and Community Tours

Away from the busy urban areas of Rwanda, there are three jungle villages open for visits: Ibyiwacu Village, Banda Village, and Kitabi Cultural Village. Deks Safaris can arrange day trips or overnight stays in any of these cities, or even all three if you wish. When visiting Volcanoes National Park, you can easily add a day Rwanda cultural safaris trip to the village of Ibyiwacu to your vacation schedule. The city of Rwanda is conveniently located just outside the park in Kinigi and offers you a chance to make new friends. Your immersion in tribal customs begins upon arrival with a merry dance to the beat of African drums. Other members of the community will welcome you with warm smiles and kind words before leading you on a tour of the village that includes a twin of traditional royalty.

Sit on the throne for a moment and receive the power of the king from a village elder. Meet a healer who will demonstrate traditional medicine and tell you about the herbs, shrubs, and trees that provide the botanical ingredients. Help the villagers prepare food and perhaps enjoy a lunch or dinner of traditional dishes. Traditional basket weaving, grain milling, medicine making, and the opportunity to taste the local cuisine are just a few of the ways you can have a personal experience with the people of Rwanda. The random timing of your visit can even get you a front-row seat at a traditional wedding ceremony. With an overnight stay, you can see a fire ceremony and a special ritual dance.
