In Rwandan culture, the cow is a sign of partnership, collaboration and togetherness. Cattle are a sign of riches and friendship, used in dowries and referenced in traditional dances where Rwandans dance with the whole body and stretch their arms upward as if they are horns of the cattle.
At Virunga Ecotours we offer a tour in the farm of a local farmer to experience why Rwandans' predilection for milk is hardly a new fad. You will participate in cow milking, butter churning, and milk drinking in a local milk bar. You will also meet and interact with the local farmers to know more about cattle farming history in Rwanda.
The cost for this activity is always negotiated accordingly and we make sure that it benefits the local farmer.
