Relaxed holiday in Rwanda

enter image description here

Rwanda isn’t suited to a chill-out kind of holiday. It requires some effort to make the most of the country’s main highlights, and overall it is best suited to relatively active travellers. The closest thing to a real beach resort is Lake Kivu, but this is more the sort of place you would tag on to a longer visit than a reason to visit Rwanda in its own right.

Highlands and medium-altitude regions, for instance Kigali, Lake Kivu and Volcanoes and Nyungwe National Parks, are warm to hot by day, and comfortably cool by night. Low-lying Akagera National Park is hot by day, and warm by night. November is the peak of the short rainy season and monthly rainfall in most parts of the country is high (100mm or higher).

Food and tipping in Rwanda

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…

Changing money in Rwanda

The Rwandan franc (RWF) trades against most international currencies at a favourable rate. Major international credit/debit cards (for instance Master and Visa) can be used to draw local currency at 24-hour ATMs in most cities and towns, but not in the national parks. Many vendors do not accept cards, however, so it’s a good idea to carry a few hundred dollars’ worth of hard…

Kigali

Today, this strikingly neat and modern-looking highland city sprawls attractively across a series of hills spanning altitudes of…

Languages in Rwanda

Unusually for Africa, Rwanda is essentially a mono-linguistic state, with the first language of practically all citizens being Kinyarwanda. In addition, most Rwandans speak a little of at least one international language. Historically, French was the most widely recognised European language, thanks to almost 50 years of Belgian colonisation. These days, however, English probably has the…
