THE BEACH


WELCOME TO THE RELAXING WHITE SAND BEACHES OF THE COSTA DEL KIVU


THE HILLS ARE ALIVE


WITH THE SIGHTS OF THRIVING VILLAGES, AGRICULTURE, COMMERCE AND GOOD LAND MANAGEMENT


THUMBS UP TOURISTS! JUST DON'T TRUST THE GUIDEBOOK


WETHER YOU ARE AN MZUNGU OR NOT - RWANDA IS HAPPY TO SEE TOURISTS AND READY FOR THEM AS WELL!


** GUIDEBOOKS ON RWANDA SUCK !!! **
I BOUGHT 2 'NEW' GUIDEBOOKS (BRADT AND LONELY PLANET) AND THEY REPEATED A LOT OF INFORMATION FROM A PREVIOUS EDITION/YEAR. A LOT OF THAT WAS WRONG TOO! KIGALI POST OFFICE? 3 LOCATIONS LISTED AND ITS NOT IN ANY OF THEM! (THEY DO LIKE TO MOVE THE THE POST OFFICE TO BE FAIR.)

WHY?
RWANDA IS A REBORN NATION. IT'S YOUNG, NEW AND GROWING. AND THE GUIDEBOOK PEOPLE NEED TO REVISIT. SO FOR NOW - READ THIS PAGE! IT'S UP-TO-DATE!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:TOURIST FRIENDLY, EASY TO GET AROUND, ENGLISH SPOKEN
  • Cons:ITS STILL A DEVELOPING COUNTRY
  • In a nutshell:VISIT NOW BEFORE IT BECOMES MORE EXPENSIVE.

    Really interesting and informative page! Every tip was useful. I never saw the movie "Hotel Rwanda" but now I feel I must see it!

    Never got to explore Kigali - wish I had now. Good excuse to go back. The shores of Lake Kivu are lovely though. A slightly 'haunting' country, dont you think?

    What a great tip. Lalibela sounds fantastic - I'd love to go there right now!
