#Rwanda continues to enjoy a growing popularity of faith based tourism, best manifested on the annual Feast of Assumption which the Catholic Church celebrates every year on the 15th of August.
However, throughout the year are pilgrims now visiting the shrine to pray and tours to Kibeho are among the regular offerings for tourists beyond the gorilla experience or visiting the Big Five park of #Akagera.
