The Rwanda Development Board has encouraged the tourists and the business community that the country is very safe to travel to after the FDLR rebels based in DRC made two attacks in the Northern and Western areas killing one person in each.
Clare Akamanzi, acting CEO, RDB, said people traveling to Rwanda should continue enjoying the beautiful landscape, rich culture, good climate, the variety of wildlife in the national parks and the rare mountain gorillas.
The security has been increased on the border so that the incidence doesn’t happen again .She said all the tourist destinations in the country. The tourism sector has attracted a number of tourists in the past years and has become the country’s number one foreign exchange earner.
Eco tourism has always been the main attraction but it is trying to improve conference and events tourism so add on the number of tourist arrivals.
