Spare time for a tour to King’s palace museum in Nyanza to learn the Rwandan people and culture. Learn the evolution of traditional clothing and types of residences through the centuries, as well as economic activities like agriculture. The reconstruction of the traditional royal residence, the King’s Palace is a beautifully-crafted thatched dwelling shaped like a beehiBuilt in 1989 with the help of the Belgian government. The museum also offers a detailed insight into the country’s tragic history. In the past generations, Nyanza was a site of battles and power struggles therefore reffered to as heart of Rwanda. The capital of the kingdom had as many as 1950-2,000 inhabitants, and built hunts with the same shapes and paintings.
The treasured cows were derived from the wider Ankole breed. They were decorated with expensive jewellery and played an important role during ceremonies in honour of the king. You can find out about the breeding techniques and listen to the amahamba songs the shepherds sang as part of the grooming process for the cows. They moved gently on the songs for their trainer. Up to date Inyambo still exisits in some farms in Rwanda however some have cross breed with other types.
