You’ll arrive at the Virunga Programs camping grounds where you can take part in all the community activities featured. Watch a demo on the social aspects of beer production and then be introduced to traditional art and crafts of Rwanda. Later that afternoon, visit ‘IRIBA RYA NKOTSI NA BIKARA’, a nearby pond with magical waters, as legend would have you believe. You’ll not only enjoy fantastic vistas on the way to the pond, but also a refreshing natural foot massage (we will be walking on rocks throughout).
