Rwanda

All too often, Rwanda's name evokes memories of the horrific genocide that brutalised this country in 1994. The truth is however that this small country may just be one of Africa's most stable nations. Driven by a national motivation to join forces and rebuild the country, Rwanda's dark times have been replaced by a promising and dynamic future.

“In all my travels, I've never seen a country's population more determined to forgive, and to build and succeed than in Rwanda.”

— Rick Warren

Volcanoes

Around 700 years ago the volcanic mountains Muhabura and Sabyinyo erupted, sending waves of lava across its surroundings. Some of these residues can still be found in the Northern part of Rwanda  (Musanze district), the South East of  Uganda(Kisoro district), and the Eastern part of Congo(Goma). Just like the soil the series of eruptions created, Red Rocks Rwanda is deeply rooted in it's surroundings, local community and environment.

I fell in love with Rwanda the moment I saw those verdant, rolling hills rise up beneath the wings of the plane as we descended toward Kigali airport.

Musanze

Located in the North West of Rwanda, Red Rocks is a lovable cultural tourism scheme that is dedicated to helping its community grow in all aspects of life. Its beautiful location in the lush rolling Rwandan hills within close proximity to the Virunga Volcanoes make it an amazing stop on your trip through the region.

Cultural and Wildlife

Whether you're interested in learning about the community,  hiking through nature or experiencing wildlife, there’s something for everyone at Red Rocks Rwanda. From boating on a lake to basket weaving, cow milking, bee keeping, banana beer production, organic farming, traditional dancing, drumming, storytelling, and village walks.

One of the things I love about Africa is the amount of dignity and respect and humility you see all the time. You don't realise how often you're disrespected until you are surrounded by respect.

— Jill Scott
