Kratek pregled

Located close to Volcanoes National Park and the town of Musanze, the Iby Iwacu Cultural Village is an enchanting cultural experience that has come from the ashes of Rwanda's infamous poaching culture.


Comprised of locals who once made their living poaching the country's beautiful mountain gorillas, the Iby Iwacu Cultural Village has rehabilitated these former criminals and also provided them with a way to support their community while also introducing visitors to the unique culture of pre-colonial Rwanda.


A visit to Iby Iwacu Cultural Village includes a variety of activities including traditional dance and music, learning about traditional medicines and foods, spending a day in the life of a Rwandan king, and a number of local activities such as village walks.


Depending on how much time you have, your visit to Iby Iwacu can be a few hours of cultural discovery all the way up to a full day experience in cultural immersion.
