Traditional Craft


Basketry is one of the ancient Rwandan skills that have been able to be sustained by adapting to modern demands. Artistic basketry and utilitarian basketry were executed by women. Very richly ornamented with geometrical motifs would be decorative or used for arranging precious objects. Visitors can buy them at rural workshops and shops in Kigali and Butare or Rubavu.

IMIGONGO: Cow dung paintings

The beginning of the 19th century, there was KAKIRA, son of KIMENYI, King of GISAKA KIBUNGO province, (South-East of Rwanda) who invented the art of embellishing house and thus making them more attractive for living. While house style has changed, today it's the KAKIRA association that adapted the ancient models and paints into new embellishing products, the IMIGONGO of Rwanda. Dominated by black, brown and white whorls and other geometric abstractions, these unique and earthy works can be bought in Kigali, but it's worth diverting to source to see how the paintings are reflected in local house decorations.

For one day visit, Kawira safaris is proud to offer you the real experience based on the Rwandan TRaditional Craft. The tour starts and end from Gisenyi in Rubavu district.
