POTTERY EXPERIENCE TOUR

Walk or bike to the village where you will get to know the lives of Rwanda’s first inhabitants, the historical marginalized people (Batwa).This very small minority of roughly 25,000 traditionally lived in forests and led lives as hunters and gatherers. Not much has changed in their perceptions of life but their environment has changed dramatically. With enormous population pressure, most forests had to make way for human settlements, and the few remaining patches of forest are completely closed for any human activity. Some Batwa now make a living with their traditional skills as potters and performing artists, but many others merely survive as beggars.in a half-day excursion from Kivu Serena Hotel ,experience the Batwa’s hospitality by learning about their pottery skills as well as witnessing their amazing dance and music. During the tour visitors can give donation or buy souvenirs to support this community.
