Rwanda loves nothing better than natural conservation. Today the country celebrates the first Kwita Izina conservation and Tourism exhibition. The event started in Kigali on August 27th and it has attracted several exhibitors from Uganda, Nigeria, Tanzania, Kenya, and Zimbabwe. All countries are represented by private and public sectors of the travel and tourism industry that understand everything about country travel holidays and attractions. The best of all is that the tourism exhibition is organized together with the gorilla naming ceremony and locals, regional and international exhibitor are showcasing their products and services until 29th, August 2016 at Kigali Conference and Exhibition Village.
In Rwanda, mountain gorillas are the star attractions. These great apes that live in the Virunga Volcanoes (staying in Volcanoes National Park) attract many international and local tourists to who visit the country. Apart from the mountain gorillas, there is a lot to explore in the park. There are many adventure activities that you can experience on Rwanda gorilla trekking safaris within the Virunga. The Volcanoes National Park isn’t just a home to mountain gorillas but also a home to golden monkeys, birds, wildlife, other primates and great for culture adventures. However most Rwanda travels usually focus on gorilla trekking tours given that they are the prime attraction of the country.
The Tourism and Conservation Exhibition is aimed to clear way for the long waited Kwita Izina baby naming ceremony that is due on 2nd September 2016 in Musanze district. It’s here that one can know the other attractions and destinations to visit after Rwanda because the conservation effort still reigns in other nations as well. For those with several travel dreams, the tourism and conservation exhibition is your best venue for other great attractions in Africa. It offers great chances of meeting up with cream service providers as well as holding an open discussion on questions about different destinations and attractions one may have in mind.
During the exhibition, the Rwanda Development Board’s Chief Executive, Francis Gatare said “We are delighted to offer all guests the most hospitable welcome to Rwanda; you have all chosen to be part of this very important exhibition because of our mutual interest in sustainable tourism development. This is the first edition of the Rwanda Conservation and Tourism Exhibition but we will continue to organize it and grow with it. We therefore urge conservationists, exhibitors and tour operators from all over the world to participate.”
Still out of the many guests who showed up for the exhibition, Belise Kariza the Rwanda Chief Tourism Officer was among and she thanked all the exhibitors for turning up in large numbers in hour of Rwanda tourism conservation success. We all know that without conservation Kwita Izina wouldn’t have been celebrated and still some Africa attractions would have remained unknown. However natural conservation success is always success for many tourism attractions and destinations regardless of where they are found.
Travelers usually visit several destinations across the continent and that inspire many other to follow the footsteps of others hence connecting one destination on the other. I believe after the kwita Izina celebration of 2nd September many Rwanda tourists will opt to check out other natural parks offering wonderful outdoor activities from gorilla tracking, hiking, wildlife viewing, birding, fishing, chimpanzee trekking and many more. But would highly recommend perfect places and attractions for relaxing in neighboring countries. And if you’re interested in more gorilla tracking tours, Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo offer unique primate tour experiences as well as amazing wildlife.
