Is there a ferry service from Cyangugu to Kibuye?
I would like to take the bus from Kigali to Nyungwe (poss. stopping in Huye/Butare). After some trekking in Nyungwe I would like to relax by the lake, so I am thinking of making my way up to Kibuye. Or is it better to stay in Cyangugu and after some relaxation backtrack to Kigali?
I'm looking for a place to photograph some of Rwanda's long horn (Ankole) cattle. Does anyone know of a place near KIgali or Gisenyi? Ideally I would like to spend a few hours photographing a farmer and his cows.
The only place I could find so far is Nyanza at the royal complex, or are these cattle common anywhere in Rwanda.
For my fellow solo or budget travelers who love adventure, I'd like to make sure you have a really good reference. I'm an athlete and I have to work within a fairly tight budget, and I need for a safari operation to really listen. I found ETrip Africa on another forum via a personal recommendation, and I have never looked back. What I love:
They pay very close attention to what you want to do and your budget needs
You lay out your smorgasbord or they will give you lots of options- they live in…
My friend and I are 21 year old females and are planning on travelling to Rwanda late May/early June. We were just wondering how safe it is for two females travelling alone? We will mostly be in Kigali (and Volcanoes National Park). Is it safe for young women to travel in Rwanda? Should we dress modestly?
Any safety info/tips about Rwanda would be appreciated!
I'm a 32 yr old South African guy that has decided to go see Rwanda on a whim :D
The trip and flights have been hastily booked and I have a pass reserved for the gorillas on the 7th of April. I would like to explore the country for the reminder of the time and have a few ideas of places to go and I thought I would send a message out there to anyone that may be in the country at the same time to share the experience with.
First post but avid follow of the threads :D
we'll visit Rwanda next august and we'd like to know some questions about Volcanoes NP. We'll do the gorilla trek in Uganda, so in this park we are interested in other activities like:
Twin lakes (Burera and Ruhondo)
Climb Bisoke volcano
We know the price for the two first (100$ and 75$, true?), but we don't know about the third one.
Any one has done this trips?, how long do they take?. We're fit, no problem with walking...
The main question is: worth the money?
Hi all and thanks in advance for any offers of help-
We are planning a trip to travel in Rwanda and Uganda this May/June and are very interested in seeing the gorillas in Parc National de Volcans-and have a few questions for those who have done this trek-
We are planning on coming from Queen Elizabeth Park in Uganda and would rather not go all the way to Kigali and then come back north to Kinigi-what would be the best way to get from QE to Kinigi or Musanze?
From the posts i have heard great…
