Community Based Tourism

Community based tourism has been highlighted as one of the main strategies to diversify the tourism offerings in Rwanda. Community-based tourism is a form of tourism based on the involvement and participation of the local population in the destination. Development of a local touristic experience does not always need a multimillion-dollar investment. A visit to a local coffee plantation, a locally cooked meal or a ride with locals in a dugout canoe are often all it takes to create a memorable experience and for visitors to open their wallet. Money spent goes straight to the local economy without other actors in a different part of the world taking a cut.
