Listening to their rich music, seeing their homemade instruments and watching their tribal dance will provide a source of income for an impoverished community. It is their desire for people to hear their history and be part of their future. If you would like to visit the Batwa or any other groups or people please ask us and we can arrange trips.

Whichever corner you turn, there is always something new to explore.

To the south of the district lies the Virunga Mountain Range, of which Muhabura, Mgahinga and Sabinyo are the three mountains which border Rwanda and Uganda. These mountains rise up above the town and can be seen from across the district.

Towards the west, the land becomes flatter and rolling hills are small in comparison to those of the east.

Kisoro Town is located 12km from the Rwanda border and 15km from the Congo border. It’s proximity to these increasingly stable countries is enabling the town to grow in both size and prosperity.
