I will be stopping in Rwanda for unfortunately only three nights and two days (arriving on a Thursday evening, leaving on a Sunday morning) and would welcome advice on how best to spend my time. I've heard that Kigali is a nice place and would be glad to explore. However, I'd really like to get out and do a day hike in the northwest, and am thinking about leaving Kigali Friday morning (or even Thursday night), hiking Friday, staying on nearby Lake Kivu Friday night, and then heading back to…

Hi all,

originally me and my girlfriend were planning to go from Kasese (after a Rwenzori trek) to Gisenyi, crossing the border to Goma and starting a Nyiragongo hike followed by a Gorilla tracking in the Congo. As for now the park was closed, we are desperately in search for an alternative program.

We know that we can do the Gorillas in Uganda/Rwanda as well and we are currently busy organizing it. But we would still have some time left until we have to catch our flight in Kigali.

Here is…

Hi all,

I'd like to hear people's tips for an 8 day itinerary around Rwanda. We like hiking, seeing wildlife and exploring (mainly on our own but don't mind some guided tours too) and tend to avoid anything too touristy. What would people recommend?

Hello, all.
Does anyone have any recent experience with getting a multiple entry visa for Rwanda? It seems like I should be able to apply online but the online form is for single entry only. The Rwandan embassy in Canada says you can apply through the post, but there is no form and they have not gotten back to my query.
I could get an East Africa Visa (as I am going to Uganda also) but I am also planning to go to the DRC and I read that if you go there your East Africa Visa will be invalidated on…

I'm planning an East Africa trip in July/August - right now I'm debating b/w Rwanda vs. Uganda. Which would you recommend to someone who isn't planning to do a gorilla trek, and what would you recommend doing? I plan to spend about a week or so.

Thanks!

Hi everyone!

I was interested in going to Nyungwe Forest National park, but don't have a whole lot of time. Is it possible to go up saturday night, stay the night, do a chimp or monkey tracking on the day of Sunday and come back Sunday evening? (my flight out of Kigali is 8:30am on Monday morning)

Any recommendations of guides or other types of advice or tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
Michael

Hi guys. I have another question about our forthcoming trip to Rwanda. In the Bradt guide it says you must confirm your return flight. I have never done this before in all the hundreds of flights I have done. Do we need to do it in reality and where/ how? We are flying with Brussels airlines. Thank you
