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…
In 2019, we are planning to go on a long trip in Africa my wife, 2 kids an I. We should be in South Africa in June or July 2019 and were thinking of doing a 2 week part from Port Elizabeth to Cape town with my parents in law. Do you have any suggestions of how to move around for 6 people? We are not used to drive on the left and thought about public transportation or hiring a driver for some parts. Any ideas or suggestions to feed my thoughts?

We are arriving in Lagos at 2:50PM and flying to Nairobi at 10:45PM.
Will we be able to get a transit visa and get out of the airport for a few hours?
Also, is there internet at Lagos airport? We will be flying stand-by from New York to Lagos and because of this reason we will not have an onward ticket…

I would like to know if is it safe (for an overseas tourist) travel by overnight bus (Greyhound or Translux) from Johannesburg to Cape Town?
by "safety" I mean avoiding potential robbery at night while travelling by bus.
Unfortunately, there is little information about this type of transportation. I just found some advices like: "Stay away from SA Roadlink" and "Stick to Greyhound or Translux".
I found lots of information about train and Baz Bus, but almost nothing about long…
