We are ZaNihezians

Get to Know Us

Chief of Staff

Julia GIHOZO

There are stories that we are told, places that we see, and people that we meet, that tug on the cords of our hearts and mind and never let us go. This is a wish to many. Where else to get those experiences in abundance than in tourism? Cultural tourism, to be exact, that touches on all aspects of life is but a genie that will bring your wish to life. ZaNiheza will give you that, all of that. As it gave it to me.

When I joined ZaNiheza, I was wondering how cultural tourism can be done alongside technology. Here at ZaNiheza, we figured out our secret; It is a passion that blends with skills. Your eyes too deserve such an authentic, fun, and informative technological-advanced tour in Rwanda. Come and enjoy... Murakaza neza/You are welcome.

Rwanda, oooh Rwanda. You have seen days of agony and darkness but look at you now. You have risen above all and shone. Being defined by the genocide against the Tutsi in 1994 hardly gives you justice. You have so many stories to tell, your culture. A culture that unifies Rwandans and connects us to the whole Rwanda. One culture. One beautiful culture. I aim to be the one who unfolds it.

Naomi NGIRABANDI

When I joined ZaNiheza, I did not know what to expect. It sounded like an exciting idea considering the growth and expansion of the tourism sector in Rwanda, so I joined. As time passes by, I gradually figure out why I am here. I am here to learn about my culture, to tell my culture, and to live my culture. Now that I know my purpose… there is no where else I would rather be.

"Culture is an antidote to violence because it invites us to understand others and fosters tolerance, encouraging us to go out and meet other imaginary people and other cultures," said one politician. Cultural tourism is tourism that will enable us to relive our culture and also to know our identity. It is in this sense that ZaNiheza allows you to know the Rwandan culture in all its splendor. The love I bear for culture has brought me all the way from West Africa, from Burkina Faso to East Africa, straight into the land of a thousand hills. I hope it does the same to you.

Chief Protocol Officer

Charlene INEZA

Zaniheza was and still is, the perfect opportunity for me to live my dreams. That is living my country's story and learning more about my culture because that's what shapes me today, and every day. As a miss Rwanda 2020 contestant, I have a special liking to welcoming people and making them feel at home and thus, I joined the protocol of Zaniheza.

Tour Guide

Kenny CYUZUZO

I work with ZaNiheza as a tour guide. Automatically that means that it is my face you will see mostly when you travel with ZaNiheza. Working with ZaNiheza has been a heartfelt honor for it equipped me with necessary skills and experiences that transformed me into a strong man. Engaging with a lot of different people has been my passion ever since and now, the good news is, that it has become my profession too!

Gaston

Marketing Officer

Jean de Dieu Mabubu HAGENIMANA

Rwanda is a safe country, a welcoming home to foreigners, and a beautiful land of thousand hills. Growing up here has helped shape my attitude and passion for the tourism industry. I am passionate about giving foreigners a taste of their own Rwandan life. ZaNiheza would like to make it even more favorable for you through experiencing our culture when you visit Rwanda. You will perhaps not wish to go back home but it will be worth it… are you having doubts? Book your visit now and you will tell me later.

Visual Artist

Leon BWANAKWELI

I joined ZaNiheza with the aim to illustrate the country and the culture via images. Yes, all types of visual images. So each day, I wake up, grab my camera, and off the road I go. I film, I take pictures, I take all the angles, and I redo each and every scene again and again. Why I do all that? I want to capture the best scene. The scene of life. I want to offer you that one picture, that one video, that will replay in your eyes and stretches your lips into a smile.
