Fazenda Sengha is an equestrian and outdoor recreational center on the outskirts of Kigali. Situated as the brainchild of a group of several families, Fazenda Sengha seeks to expand into a nature center with various aspects with a vision to create an environmentally friendly facility where friends and family can gather to learn about h enjoy the Rwandan outdoors. Fazenda Sengha has reintroduced the equestrian culture into Rwanda by educating our members about the activities and knowledge that come along with owning horses. Rwanda’s neighboring countries, such as Kenya and Burundi, equestrian industry, yet the war of 1994 wiped out any progress made in horsemanship within Rwanda. Fazenda is now reestablishing the culture; it is a challenge, a development, and an investment, but the founders are gladly excited to be at the change.
At Fazenda Sengha you will enjoy a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Kigali city. The newly built Fazenda Sengha in Kigali, Rwanda welcomes all levels of riders to enjoy private classes and trail rides in the hills of Mt. Kigali. Whether you live in Kigali or are passing through for a visit, escape from everyday life to enjoy the peace of our unique location.
