Press trip to Rwanda

aaaA five person big group of journalists, a photographer and bloggers had the pleasure to #VisitRwanda on a press trip through the country in the beginning of November. In cooperation with RwandAir Rwanda Development Board invited the journalists to visit the beautiful country in East-Africa.

The tour through the country included a visit to the Genozid Museum in Kigali, a Game Drive in Akagera Nationalpark with sighting of a lion family. An overnight stay in the newly opened Wilderness Safaris Magashi Camp located directly at Lake Rwanyakazinga, where you fall asleep to the sound of the hippos.

A trek to the Canopy Walk in Nyungwe Nationalpark and of course chimpanzee trekking was also part of the program in Nyungwe. The group spend to nights in Kamembe at Lake Kivu directly on the border to DR Congo. Especially for the photographer the early morning views on the lake was a treat.

On the way towards Volcanoes Nationalpark we stopped at the Rushel lodge located next to a coffee plantation between Karongi and Rubavu another beautiful location at Lake Kivu.

The highlight of the tour was of course the gorilla trekking in Volcanoes Nationalpark, a once in a lifetime experience. To enjoy the fantastic views of the volcanoes we drove to the Virunga Lodge for the sunset view of the volcanoes and the beautiful Twin Lakes. The last trekking activity was a Golden Monkey trekking, another amazing experience to see these endemic primates so close by.

The last activity was canoeing on the Mukungwa River another great activity to watch birds and just enjoy the lush countryside.

As part of this year's Kwita Izina, Visit Rwanda has teamed up with National Geographic to give everyone in the world the chance to name a baby mountain gorilla! You can help chose the name for a baby gorilla from the Kwitonda family by voting on Nat Geo's social media platforms including Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Click here to find out more about this special baby gorilla and vote for your favourite name on this Instagram story.  Click here to vote on Twitter and click here to vote on Facebook.

Fifteen years on, the Kwita Izina tradition continues—and you can help choose the name of one of this year’s babies! You've got 72 hours to cast your vote and name one of Rwanda's new baby mountain gorillas. You can choose Intego or Imyato.

Intego means "Purpose" because her life holds purpose in Rwanda's effort to save endangered species.

Imyato means "Achievement," paying tribute to those who have helped Rwanda thrive through conservation initiatives.

Inspired by the Rwandan tradition of holding a naming ceremony for babies after their birth, Kwita Izina – or ‘to give a name’ in the national language, Kinyarwanda – is an event like no other on Earth, yet steeped in cultural meaning and ancient custom.
