Rwanda - Women Only Tour with Crooked Compass

Crooked Compass, Rwanda: Explore Rwanda’s inspiring story of re-emergence through its culture, history, and wildlife.

Location: Rwanda

Date: 8th - 18th Oct 2019

Conservation facts: From visiting Nyamirambo Women’s Centre (NWC), a Rwandan NGO that addresses gender-based violence, gender inequality and discrimination through education and vocational training, and staying at the conservation-heavy Akagera National Park, to engaging in fair trade experiences (such as banana juice making and traditional home construction,) and seeing the mountain gorillas and interacting with the Gorilla Doctors - this entire tour is a rich study in the conservation of local wildlife, culture, history, economy, and people.

Style: The Crooked Compass - Remarkable Rwanda tour perfectly captures Rwanda’s rise from ruin to being the most progressive leader in East Africa. This tour is even more special because it’s a women’s-only tour, celebrating Rwanda’s status as one of the world’s safest countries, while also exploring the rich wildlife and culture of the country.

On this tour, you’ll do everything - from seeing the majestic Mountain Gorillas, interacting with Dian Fossey’s Gorilla Doctors and contributing towards their conservation efforts, to getting in touch with the daily lives of Rwandans. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity!
