Arsenal players were surprised this week during training when a group of Rwandan drummers turned up at North London training ground to entertain them.
The Gunners signed a deal shirt sponsorship deal with ‘Visit Rwanda’, The African country hopes that their three-year, £30m-deal with Arsenal will help to promote what the country has on offer for tourists.
Players including Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Lucas Torreira, Alexander Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and head coach, Unai Emery joined the dancers.
Why visit Rwandan?
It is an African country whose name will always be tinged with tragedy – but which is also known as a fabulous destination for wildlife and adventure.
In popular perception, the key reason to visit Rwanda is its mountain gorilla population.
These glorious creatures haunt Volcanoes National Park, in the far north-west of the country (where it rubs up against Virunga National Park in the DRC and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in Uganda to create one colossal cross-border expanse of wildlife and wonder).
Rwanda is rarely considered a classic safari destination, but for those seeking things that roar and growl in the night, Akagera National Park is home to a full quota of the Big Five (lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo, leopard).
