Program Overview

Learning Journeys partners with IED - Institute of Entrepreneurial Design- for a exclusive program focusing on deep responsible cultural immersion and experiential photography.

Rwanda is a small country boasting a special remoteness and hilly terrain. It was one of the last places to come into contact with the rest of the world. The current leadership’s strong embrace of globalization and ‘modern’ values has led to a fascinating mix of old and new, of traditions and change.

It is our responsibility, desire and pleasure to offer you a deep and very personal insight into this unique environment that will challenge your perceptions of Africa and the world in general.

This immersive journey is a one-in-a-lifetime chance to meet genocide survivors, spend time with the local communities, visit NGO’s to give back to the community, trek amongst the wildlife, and go on a photography immersion like no other.

Here, your instructor will take you into the field to take landscape photos in real-time, providing trainer-trainee interaction, discussing wildlife photography and engaging in countless cultural immersions along the way.
