The future of natural resources is based in the education of the present generations. We facilitate the educational tours in the National Parks and other attractions in Rwanda and with our collaborators in the region we arrange the visit to the tourism attractions of Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya and Burundi and put you in touch with the regional Wildlife Clubs. Through the field trips, pictures, movies and films on the wildlife we allow the students (and their teachers) and members of institutions to enjoy the beauty of the nature, observe the challenge it is facing and the role they can play to adapt (and stop) the effects.
