The previously bushy and stagnated Nyandungu wetland is gradually shaping up into a reclaimed Urban Wetland Eco-Tourism Park that can be utilised by Kigali dwellers as a place for meditation, and reconnecting with nature while cooling off stress.
According to the Infrastructure Ministry, this swamp is being redeveloped into a futuristic nature niche without disturbing its ecosystem.
“It will be composed of ornamental ponds, gallery forests, medicinal plant gardens, paved walk ways and cycle lanes, restaurants, information centre, recreational and other biodiversity services. It will attract both foreign and local visitors,” according to the ministry.
