Malaria-free safari in Rwanda

enter image description here Malaria is prevalent in many parts of Rwanda and it would be difficult to holiday there without some risk of exposure. That said, Volcanoes National Park and the associated gorilla-tracking trailheads and lodges all lie at too high an altitude for malaria to be much of a risk, as does Nyungwe National Park, though in both cases you would need to pass through medium- to high-risk areas to get there from Kigali. The risk of malaria is far higher in the relatively low-lying Akagera National Park and along the shores if Lake Kivu.

Ideally you should leave any expensive jewellery at home, and avoid leaving valuables such…

Shopping in Rwanda

Kigali is equipped with a fair selection of well-stocked (but often quite pricey) western-style supermarkets and malls. Shops in smaller towns are less varied and more poorly stocked, but most everyday goods likely to be required by tourists will be available.

Budget safari in Rwanda

Options for budget travellers are limited. Rwanda has consciously implemented attract a low-volume, high-cost tourism strategy that reflects the scarcity value of its main attraction: mountain gorillas. Tracking gorillas in Rwanda costs more than twice as much as it does in neighbouring Uganda, and other activities in Volcanoes and Nyungwe National Parks are also relatively costly.…
