Food and Tipping in Rwanda

enter image description here Kigali Serena Hotel

Tipping is not standard at eateries or bars catering mainly to a local clientele, but that doesn’t mean a small something won’t be appreciated by the recipient.

Tourist-oriented restaurants operate on a similar basis to those in Europe. A 10% tip to the waiter is standard, depending on the quality of service.

Hotel porters usually expect a tip equivalent to around US$1 per item of luggage.

Tip in local currency where possible; it may be quite difficult for locals to exchange small amounts of hard currency into Rwanda francs.

It is customary to tip guides on national park activities such as gorilla tracking or hikes. If you require a porter, ask your guide about the fee and add a small tip if they perform satisfactorily.

In game lodges that offer guided activities, drivers and guides should be tipped. Many such lodges have guideline in the rooms; failing that ask management for a directive.
