Have you already planned for where to spend your Easter holiday this year? Well, you may or may not have done that but the fact is the thrilling adventure Rwanda is ready to offer this season is a must experience. Unlike the past years, this time this “land of thousand hills” has tried to spice up its tourism activities with unique activities.
As one plans to spend about3 days in Rwanda during Easter, he/she should expect a different breathtaking safari experience. A gorilla trekking trip to Volcanoes National Park during this period can be extended with an interesting golden monkey tracking and nature walks. This trip is different from others simply because this time around the number of visitors especially those on holidays with their families will be high. This presents a chance of meeting and greeting different people from different cultural backgrounds and also be able to make new friends. Trust me, Easter Holiday spent in the thick rainforests of Virunga is a lifetime experience as you spend more time with different gorilla families and also playing with some friendly primates.
In the past, Easter period regarded as the best time to go back to the villages and spend some time with parents and grannies. This is typical of Africa, Rwanda inclusive and according Tourism officials this affects the industry as traffic to different sites is reduced. The few people that are found in these parks during Easter are foreigners a thing that shows that the local people are not taking advantage of their own attractions. It is this reason that the government has come out to urge the Rwandans to take advantage of the period to visit their own parks and witness how their own country is blessed.
This does only call for the local people but also other travelers from different countries especially the nature lovers. Traveling with your family during this holiday will have a great positive impact to everyone as they get to discover different nature wonders which cannot be found elsewhere.
Some of the interesting tourism activities one can enjoy during this Easter Period include;- Gorilla & chimpanzee tracking, golden monkey trekking, cultural tours, Dian Fossey grave hike, bird watching, nature walks, game drives and many more.
