Nyagatare is one of two regions in Rwanda that has best preserved the pastoralist heritage of the Rwandans. Pastoralist homes still grind their own wheat and sorghum that make up many of their traditional dishes. Take some time to tour the traditional huts and taste some traditional beer, urwagwa, which is made of roasted sorghum flour mixed with fermented banana juice. Banana is among the staple foods along with cassava, plantains, and sweet potato which is usually eaten with porridge in the morning
Witness unique storytelling as you watch a beautifully choreographed Intore; a traditional Rwandan dance of warriors, and the graceful display of feminine strength in the Umushayayo dance of women. This is more than entertainment but immerse yourself in the most special part of the community’s day.
