Nyanza King’s Palace
A reconstruction of the traditional royal residence, the King’s Palace is a beautifully-crafted thatched dwelling shaped like a beehive.
In olden times, Nyanza was the heart of Rwanda. According to oral tradition, it was the site of battles and power struggles.
Situated on a hill 2km southwest of town, this fascinating museum is less about ancient history and more about royal residences. The displays Centre on a replica king's ‘palace’. There is a guided tour that helps explain some of the architectural idiosyncrasies inside the royal compound, including why the royal beer brewer’s hut had an entrance without a lip, and other curiosities such as why the woman who looked after the king’s milk was never able to marry.
National Ethnographic Museum
A gift from Belgium’s King Badouin in the late 1980s, the Ethnographic Museum now houses one of Africa’s finest ethnographic collections.
Seven galleries display historical, ethnographic, artistic and archaeological artefacts accompanied by visual aids, giving visitors a rich insight into the Rwandan culture.
The exhibits open with geographical and geological displays, moving on to items used in hunting, agriculture, animal husbandry, pottery, weaving and woodwork.
Traditional clothing and architectural methods are also illustrated, as well as the social importance of cattle.
The final room reveals traditional customs and beliefs, history, culture, poetry and oral tradition and cosmology.
There’s also a highly regarded craft Centre on site.

Nyungwe National Park
Nyungwe forest is the park's most valuable resource. It is the largest remaining montane forest in Africa and has been in existence since the Ice Age period. Nyungwe Forest is believed to be one of the sources of the great River Nile. Because of the alternating mountainous, hilly and flat terrain in the park, the plant diversity is amazing.
The natural state of the forest rewards travelers with an inhaled good pure oxygen, as they are least air pollutants.
This National Park is incredible, views of green mountains as far as the eye can see. The forest has it all form chimpanzee trekking, colobus monkeys, mountain monkeys and waterfall hiking among others. This rain forest is beautiful with so many plant and animal species that are only found there and it’s an amazing experience just being amongst nature there.
