The Iby’Iwacu cultural village displays lifestyles, artifacts, activities and local peoples’ ways of living, an amazing encounter that would be missed by the eco tourists on gorilla trekking safari in Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and at the same time changing the lives of the adjacent community through socio-economic transformation which is also a drive to conservation.
