1 day Village Tour

*NB. You will spend approximately 4-5 hours at the project PLUS approx 2 hours travel time in total - making this just under a full day experience.

to get out of Kigali and experience village life in Rwanda this is a great option.  We will pick you up from your hotel at 7.30am as we head south to a very special project that supports women in co-operatives across several villages in the district. Through your support of these village experiences, these women have found a self-sustaining means of income. You will be allocated a Mama and visit her traditional mud home, experience a typical day in her shoes and meet her family and community.  There is walking involved so you will need to dress for action! Choose from village experience activities that include:

  • Mud brick making - yes you will construct a house!
  • Banana beer making
  • Weaving

After all that excitement you will have worked up quiet an appetite, so it's back to Mama's house for a home cooked traditional Rwandan lunch (vegetarian).  All the while you are accompanied by your own interpreter who will happily ask your new friends all the questions that you have.  After lunch we say farewell to our new friends - there is a chance to purchase some handmade baskets and other goodies by these talented women in the gift store.  Sit back and relax as we drive back to Kigali and drop you at your hotel for a well earnt restful evening.
