About Us

We have a strong vision to support communities in their effort to conserve natural resources, maximize the benefits of tourism and promote ecotourism within communities using indigenous knowledge, skills and basic resources. Our wide range of Community Based Tourism (CBT) activities includes scenic tours around Volcanoes National Park, home stays, local beer brewery visit, beekeeping experience, community volunteering, agri-tourism, cultural entertainment, local project visits, night fishing, coffee tour experience, tented campsite and live culture interpretation amongst others.

Our objectives include maximizing tourism opportunities to benefit VNP local communities through their involvement in community based tourism activities, to increase the number of tourists and their stay in Rwanda, promoting conservation awareness in primary, secondary and high learning schools, working hand in hand with tourism stakeholders to deliver professional and exceptional service to tourists who visit Rwanda (tourism information, directions and tour guiding services).

Our future plan is to create jobs for 500 young people through various activities including the professional training of tourist guides, educate local communities who live around protected areas on environment awareness and entrepreneurship, improve VNP tourism infrastructures and expand BGE’s activities to new tourism, cultural, historical and natural destinations.
