We are rooted in Kisoro under the peaks of the Mufumbiro Mountains, which are part of the Virunga Mountains and home to rare mountain gorillas. Kisoro is on the border between Rwanda and Uganda with stunning scenery, lake Mutanda, colorful markets, and volcano trekking. Our cousins from Rwanda have often shared tales about Rwabugiri, the first King in Rwanda’s history to come into contact with Europeans. He was the first King of the Rwanda Kingdom in the late 19th century. He held authority for 42 years and died during an expedition in modern day Congo. By the end of his rule, Rwanda was divided into a standardized structure of provinces, districts, hills, and neighborhoods, administered by a hierarchy of chiefs.
