Rwanda has many fascinating museums and memorials that are worth visiting on your trip.
One of the most known historical events is the tragic Rwandan Genocide which took place for 100 days in April. The Kigali Genocide Memorial center in Kigali commemorates the genocide, and explores other genocides around the world. The genocide memorial is a place for everyone to reflect on the past and the future.
The memorial opened in April 2004, ten years after the genocide. The Aegis Trust, a UK based organizing dedicated to preventing genocides, created the concept for the memorial and today they manage it.
Entry is free of charge. A useful audio guide is available for 9000RWF and a tour takes about one hour. The memorial is open everyday from 8am to 5pm, but the last entry is at 4pm
Many other cities and town have their own genocide memorials and you can ask for directions at any tourism information stand.
One of the most thrilling adventures you can have in Rwanda is to take a helicopter ride. Helicopter companies offer flights to and from different attractions or as scenic flights.
An aerial game flight is possible above Akagera National Park, which is a truly memorable way to see the wildlife.
To book a helicopter ride, contact your travel agent or tour operator.
