  • Description :
    We will take you on a 10 Days 9 Nights safari like no other to the Switzerland of Africa (The land of a Thousand Hills) Rwanda; For the event of a lifetime (Kwita Izina) the Naming of Gorillas. The traditional Kwita Izina naming ceremony in which community members suggest names for a new born infant has been adopted for the gorillas. The park rangers, researchers and those charged with the safekeeping of these unique animals suggest names for all young gorillas born in the past year, generally based on observed behavior and characteristics. For more than three decades the ceremony has been performed for Rwanda’s newly born mountain gorillas; it became a public ceremony in 2005 and was officially named Kwita Izina in 2007. The event is seen as a celebration of Rwanda’s conservation efforts in protecting the endangered mountain gorilla. The naming is accompanied by traditional music and dance and the event helps to raise funds for conservation. You can even 'adopt' the gorilla of your choice.
