Kigali Cultural Day Tour Muhanga Town Rwanda offers you Cultural tourism that connects you to rural Rwanda. The tour offers you a unique opportunity to experience and gain insight into the life of rural Rwandans and their families by spending a day on the farm.
Our cultural day tour begins in the morning with a drive to a town called Muhanga on the main Kigali-Huye road about an hour southwest of Kigali. Once there you will drive to a nearby village, where you will be welcomed by the ladies of the weaving cooperative.
After introductions, a morning of family chores begins. You might help out in the kitchen, collect water from the valley spring, cut grass for the farm animals and get out in the fields for a seasonal agricultural activity. At noontime, you share a simple local meal with your host family, with plenty of time to chat and learn about each other’s lives.
After lunch, you join with the artisan cooperative for an afternoon of weaving. You get to learn how to harvest and prepare the natural fibers, and then the artisans teach you how to create your own piece of sisal jewelry.
It is great sitting with the ladies as you weave and laugh together. The day finishes back at the office, with a cold drink and a chance to think back over the highlights of the day. There you can browse through some of the beautiful crafts made by the Azizi Life artisans and do a little fair trade shopping.
