PHOTOS: Mount Kigali University Tourism and Hospitality students embark on a field trip to Northern Rwanda

Over 80 students from Mount Kigali University’s Tourism and Hospitality department, led by Dr. Safari Ernest, recently completed an academic field trip to various tourist destinations in northern Rwanda.

Mount Kigali University’s Tourism and Hospitality students visited Nyabyungo (Gahunga k’Abarashi), a historic site significant for the murder of Fr Rupias (Rugigana) a European missionary by Rukara Rwa Bishingwe.

They also camped at FRAMA Nature Adventure (Batutsi Island), immersing themselves in the island’s natural beauty. The trip further included exploring the twin lakes of Burera and Ruhondo, renowned for their scenic landscapes.

The educational field trip aimed to bridge the gap between theory and practice by allowing students to connect their classroom learning to real-world tourism and hospitality operations.

Additionally, students gained industry exposure by interacting with stakeholders and understanding their roles within the tourism sector. They also managed to engage with local communities and learn more about the area.
