IMBABAZI – A home for the future

The goal of this program is to share the legacy of Rosamond (Roz) Carr with visitors and help the orphanage become financially sustainable. We have completed the first stage of our project and are ready to receive visitors.

Garden and Orphanage Tour: Walk through the majestic English gardens filled with brilliant blooms. Spot birds in the trees. Enjoy beautiful views of Karisimbi and Mikeno and Nyiragongo volcanoes. On a clear day you can see all the way to Lake Kivu. Hear stories about Dian Fossey and her friendship with Roz. See where scenes from Gorillas in the Mist were filmed.  Discover how Roz spent 50 years living in Rwanda and how she started an orphanage at the age of 82. Meet children residing at the orphanage. Learn more about life in Rwanda and our projects. After the tour, visitors are invited to stay for tea in the garden (weather permitting.) 1.5 hours.

We invite you to join us every day of the week. To ensure that a guide is available, kindly call two weeks in advance to book the tour. We will do our best to accommodate requests made with less notice.

Our introductory suggested donation is 10,000 Frw ($20 USD) per person. Please collect the donation from the visitors prior to arrival at the Imbabazi. Upon arrival the driver/guide shall give the money to the Imbabazi tour guide and a receipt will be issued.

We are located in Rubavu district, Mudende sector. Take the main road going towards Gisenyi. In the village of Kabali, between kilometer markers 128 and 129, turn right onto the dirt road. A sign for the Imbabazi is located at the turn. Continue 7km and you will find Imbabazi on your right.

In the future, we hope to offer lunch in the garden, traditional dance and a crater and caves hike.
