Wildlife tours - Rwanda is a Professional Inbound Tour company; specializing in high quality tours that incorporate pro-poor tourism, responsible tourism and ecotourism approaches in the development, operation and management of all our packages. In addition, we organize cultural and community-based tours within Rwanda and other countries. In the year 2009, 2010 and 2011; 88.6% revenues went to local communities as direct benefits. Besides that, 12 local guides were trained and employed by the company on short and long term contracts; schools, dispensaries, child-headed homes, widows of genocide, reformed perpetrators of genocides also benefited.Through Community-based tours; women empowerment has been achieved and also encouraged innovations, creativity and entrepreneurship amongst the local community groups receiving tourists. Because of incomes generated from tourism in all community-based tourism activities, this reduced conflicts within many homes in villages where we operate.Our tours support conservation as our motto says, "conserve through eco-tourism" The Dream of the company is to see majority of Rwandans benefit from tourism through employment, capacity building and empowering local communities to improve their livelihood, alleviate poverty and strengthen unity among Rwandans. At the same time, we strive to build strong lasting relationships with all our clients and partners. We allocate over 50% of the company profits for community development.
