Visit the Batwa Uganda tribe

An encounter with Batwa Uganda tribe

There are more rationales to make journeys to Uganda ranging from the vast attractions, much to do activities that include visiting the Batwa Uganda tribe.

On the fringes of the national park are the last remaining members of the endangered Batwa Uganda that once flourished in the area. A visit to their community is not only a way to learn more about the traditional forest practices of this hunter-gatherer culture, but a way to support a people whose ancient way of life has been almost completely wiped out by modernization.

Their past, beauty and authenticity of their culture will immerse you into Uganda o much. Let the whole safari to the Batwa community commence with your booking and reservation. This is one tribe you can visit while in the south western part of Uganda. you can visit it to beautify your stay outwards the jungles of Bwindi where the giant mountain gorillas call home.

 

Before, the Batwa pygmies were a semi-nomadic tribe who for thousands of years occupied the mountainous region of south western Uganda. They lived a typical hunter-gatherer lifestyle: the men used simple spears or bows and arrows to catch birds, monkeys and small antelopes and bush pigs, while the women foraged for wild honey, fruits and berries. They relied entirely on the rainforest for their existence, living in grass huts and dressing in the skins of the animals they killed. As the forests were cut down to create farmland and grazing for cattle, the Batwa were pushed back into smaller and smaller areas. Eventually, in the 1930s, the remaining forests were declared protected reserves. While this move prevented further deforestation and provided much-needed protection for the critically endangered gorillas, it all but removed the Batwa’s legal claims to the land they’d lived on for many centuries.

The final blow came in 1991 when the reserves were turned into game parks of Mgahinga and Bwindi. The Batwa were evicted. Given no support or compensation, and with nowhere to go, overnight they’d effectively become criminals on their own land. Forced out and threatened with imprisonment, they moved onto the land on the fringes of the parks, where they’re now illegal squatters.

Today, there are about 3000 Batwa left, existing in extreme poverty in makeshift grass-hut villages, in constant fear of being evicted. A marginalized community excluded from mainstream society, with limited access to work, education and healthcare, they’ve struggled to adapt to the changing times. They’re treated as outcasts by other Ugandans, and are often shunned, harassed or worse. Be a good tourist that you are and visit them because the money you pay does a lot for them. For more about them, talk to Gorilla cousins Rwanda team today.

 Visiting the Batwa

There are small Batwa villages, normally consisting of not more than half a dozen families, dotted around the edges of both Mgahinga and Bwindi, and near to Lake Bunyonyi. Many of them welcome visitors, so the details of your experience may vary depending on where you go.

At Mgahinga gorilla national park you can take the Batwa cultural trail a gentle five-hour nature walk through the forest accompanied by community guides who will show you how they forage for food, trap animals with snares made from branches, and make tools and medicines out of plants. The trail ends at Garama Cave, a 200m-long lava tube, where members of the tribe perform spine-tingling songs and music in the echoed darkness of the cave.

At Bwindi impenetrable national park, the Batwa cultural experience can be attained in the afternoon having spent the morning tracking mountain gorillas.  You will spend your free afternoon enjoying displays of traditional hunting and fire-making skills, as well as music performed on wooden instruments and animal-skin drums. You’ll also learn how they build their huts, including the high-up ‘nests’ they build in trees to protect small children from marauding predators

Your visit here will draw you to where you’ll get to hear the families’ stories first hand, encounter with several of the Batwa tribes indigenous tribe. A time spent with the Batwa tribe ranges from US$50-80 per person. Let the cultural safari start from here to the rest of Uganda in company of Gorilla cousins Rwanda team. Talk to us and the whole story will be written.

Kinkole Fish Market

Kinkole Market Kinshasa DR Congo.

Few walk their talk! Today, the most popular fish market known as Kinkole market in Democratic Republic of Congo was once a promise that came to fulfillment.

The promise was from the politician that few citizens couldn’t imagine will be materialized knowing it was just a way of winning their hearts to vote for him as usual however, he proved them wrong by keeping his word upon election.

The best way to recognize and reward locals or citizens is by giving them hope of recognizing their professions. This is exactly what Mobutu did to the fishermen of Democratic Republic of Congo. Mobutu built this market in honour of the Congolese fishermen. Amazing right?

This market is located in the Kinkole area of Democratic Republic of Congo. This market is situated at the small Kinkole fishing village found in the East of Kinshasa.

The Kinkole community played a lot on the political struggle of the Democratic Republic of Congo. They participated in several demonstration and it is one of the demonstrations here led to birth of the political party of Mobutu.

Oh yes the popular Nigerian drink “Palm wine.” This palm wine is said to be good at intoxicating so get ready to get enough of here at the river banks of river Congo.

Around this Kinkole market, you can also get a chance to taste the Liboke which is the fish smoked in manioc leaves.

After or before visiting Kinkole market, you can also do try to visit the home of the mountain gorillas at their natural habitat ion the high peaks of Virunga ranges in Virunga national park, do an encounter with the Okapis, and lowland gorillas at Kahuzi Biega national park. You can also do the hiking or mountain climbing in Democratic republic of Congo on any of the ranges or volcano at the Virunga massif.
