Wonders of Nyungwe

We have no wifi at KCCEM at present but have been given free access to the wifi outside the Rwandan Development Board Offices nearby so expect more news once our workshops are finished this afternoon. In the meantime here are a few highlights of yesterday’s exploration of Nyungwe selected by the team.


Arrived at KCCEM

We have arrived at Kitabi College of Conservation and environmental management. We have been given a tour of the lab and new growing area by Zoe, Heather and two of the leading orchid students Jean Luke and Jean Claude. Very impressive work. We have no internet at present but will blog more when we do.
