Rwanda is home to a number of traditional festivities and unique events, celebrating their culture with song and dance and spreading joy in the local communities. The Kwita Izina gorilla naming ceremony is perhaps one of the most special celebrations of Rwanda. The birth of each newborn child is a big community occasion in Rwanda, and this tradition is extended to the gorillas. Baby gorillas are introduced, formally named and celebrated in a ceremony with music, dancing, and with talks on conservation. Kwita Izina takes place annually in Kinigi, but at varying dates, so check online before booking your Rwanda flight deals. Assumption Day, a Catholic celebration of Mary’s ascension to heaven, takes place every year on the 15th of August. The majority of Rwanda is Christian, so expect to see big feasts, dancing, and music in local communities. Kigali UP is Rwanda’s premiere music festival, inviting reggae, blues, hip-hop, and pop musicians from Rwanda, Africa and the world. Look for flights to Rwanda during the summer if you wish to attend this international festival.
The cuisine of Rwanda is simple, based on local staple foods produced by traditional agriculture such as sweet potatoes, plantains, beans, maize and legumes. Meat is uncommon, while fish can be found in areas close to lakes. Ugali, common across East Africa, is a porridge-like paste of maize with milk or water. It is accompanied by vegetables and stews and a component of most other dishes. Isombe is another paste made of boiled and pounded cassava leaves this time. Other vegetables can be incorporated, such as onion, leek, eggplant, tomatoes, and isombe can even be added to fish. Igisafuria means ‘pot’ in the native language and is also the name of a dish where all the ingredients are cooked together in a single pot. The ingredients can be as varied as chicken, tomatoes, onions, celery or even bananas, as many variations exist.
While it isn’t the sole reason to visit Rwanda, its mountain gorillas are definitely at the top of most people’s lists when it comes to attractions. Volcanoes National Park is the place to meet the magnificent animals who share 99% of our DNA. Tours are available with guides who can take you through bamboo forests, meadows, and swamps to observe mountain gorillas eating and interacting with each other. The other star animals are chimpanzees, who live in Nyungwe National Park, and lions, elephants, and giraffes which can be seen on a safari in Akagera National Park. If you fancy relaxing at a lake, you are spoilt for choice between the twin lakes of Lake Burera and Lake Ruhondo, which boasts views of volcanoes. You can also go to Lake Kivu, Rwanda’s largest lake, which is dotted with islands and beaches, resorts, and spectacular vistas, offering plenty of opportunities for kayaking, hiking, or cycling. Nyanza is the first permanent royal capital of Rwanda and stayed that way from 1899 to 1962. The King’s Palace Museum in Nyanza features a reconstruction of the traditional royal residence, built with thatch and shaped like a beehive, as well as sacred cows of the enormously horned Ankole cattle.
