2-Day Kibeho Pilgrimage Safari.

Trip overview

Kibeho Parish has been a global pilgrimage destination for Roman Catholics since the Virgin Mary appeared on 28th November 1981. The focal point is Kibeho Church, where the faithful receive Holy Communion. Today the site is host to pilgrims throughout the year with two major’s dates dominating the calendar – Assumption Day (15th August) and 28th November (the anniversary of the Virgin Mary’s appearance). Tens of thousands of pilgrims now travel to Kibeho each year in search of benediction. Traveling to holy sites can be an incredibly moving experience. From beautiful cathedrals in Butare to the historical site of Kibeho, Rwanda is filled with holy places that are important to the Catholic Church.


After breakfast we depart from Grazia Hotel for Kibeho. Lunch in Huye at Ibis Restaurant then proceed to visit the Kibeho Church and the shrine to “Our Lady of Kibeho. The drive is about 3 ½ hours to Kibeho then go for a guided visit to some of the main sites. We start with a visit to the Kibeho Church and the shrine to Our Lady of Kibeho.
