Rwanda tourism plays an important role in saving post-genocide country

 Monday, April 23, 2018 


indexIn respect of the wonderful attempts of Rwanda to tirelessly endorse and protect her natural resources to attain even more sustainability and conservation, the tourism sector of Rwanda has been awarded the Global Tourism Leadership Award from the World Tours and Tourism Council (WTTC).  Recently at the World Travel Market (WTM) organized in November 2017, Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda was recognized in terms of dedication to the conservation and sustainable tourism of this East African Country.

In 1994, this small land locked country endured a violent genocide and 10 years down the recovery lane, Rwanda achieved recognition as one of the safest countries to visit in East Africa by the international community with main aim on conference tourism, ecotourism and cultural tourism. The country has adopted key steps to defend and market all the main natural resources that today are recognized as Africa’s one of the top tourism destinations.
The government in 2015 with the partnership of African park re-introduced lions in Akagera national park with an attempt to revitalize the wildlife diversity of the park to welcome more wildlife enthusiasts. Afterward, eastern rhinos were also reintroduced in the park to increase the status of Akagera national park.

Rwanda has been quite dominating in endorsing high-end tourism as she took a daring step on increasing the price of her gorilla trekking permits in Volcanoes national park. The government of the country targeted at dipping the pressure on the gorilla habitant which has a chance to create a threat on the lives of the critically endangered mountain gorilla species residing in the national park.
