Rwanda Launches ‘Bucket List Rwanda’ Travel Packages Exclusively for Middle Eastern Residents

The Rwanda Development Board, Rwanda’s governmental organisation responsible for promoting Rwanda’s tourism initiatives abroad, is attending the Middle East’s largest travel and tourism exhibition, the Arabian Travel Market, which is being held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from April 22 – 25, 2018, to launch luxury and weekend getaway packages, which have been exclusively tailored for residents of the Middle East looking for fun, excitement, and wanting experiences that both enliven the soul and become the ultimate ‘bucket list’ adventure.


Rwanda – A Land of Remarkable Hills 


Two “Bucket List Rwanda” packages are on offer including a luxury package that highlights 2 nights stay in a luxury mountain lodge with 1 day mountain Gorilla trekking tour, helicopter transfers, 2 nights stay at a 5 Star hotel in the capital city Kigali, and complimentary private tour to Kigali’s Artisan Shopping Centre and Kigali Museum. The second package is a 3 night Long Weekend Getaway, including 1 night in a 4 star resort in the Nyungwe Forest with Canopy Walk and Primates encounter, and 2 nights at a 4 Star Kigali hotel with complimentary private tour to Kigali’s Artisan shopping Centre and Kigali Museum.


Another rare tourist experience highlighted in the promotional packages as an optional tour is the possibility to take part in rural community service activities. The Rwandan national program known as ‘Umuganda’ means ‘coming together in common purpose’. It is held on the last Saturday of each month, from 8am to 11am. During this day, people across the country aged from 18 to 65 come together and contribute to the building of their country. The concept is related to the idea of solidarity and a communal sense of living, and all over the country one can see people participate in cleaning streets, cutting grass and trimming bushes along roads, or repairing public facilities and building houses for vulnerable people. A result of these activities is that Rwanda is one of cleanest countries in Africa. International tourists are also encouraged to join locals in this unique and fulfilling community experience, with special tours arranged for this purpose.


Says Belise Kariza, Chief Tourism Officer, Rwanda Development Board: “We understand that the people residing in the Middle East are well travelled. From today it’s our mission to have Rwanda included in their travel bucket lists by offering something new, meaningful and inspirational coupled with a plethora of cultural, natural, and soft adventure experiences not to be enjoyed anywhere else.”


Rightly referred to as Remarkable Rwanda, Rwanda’s green and mountainous landscapes serve as an undiscovered destination for travel aficionados looking to uncover its secrets in an exclusive setting. The promotional travel packages not only include urban and rural cultural and gourmet experiences, but also opportunities to meet up close with Rwanda’s prolific and well protected primates including the rare ‘gorillas in the mist’.


Hiding away in bamboo-covered slopes of the Virunga Mountains it is estimated only 880 Mountain Gorillas remain in the world. Rwanda is one of only three countries where these critically endangered gorillas live. In addition to gorilla trekking, adventurers are also able to encounter three other species of primates when in Rwanda including wild Chimpanzees, Black-and-white colobus monkeys, and the endangered Golden monkey.
