Many people don’t think of Rwanda as a holiday destination as they still have the images of the horrific genocide in mind. It has been over 20 years now and Rwanda has recovered to a level that will astonish you.
Rwanda is also called the land of thousand hills and is famous for having the opportunity to encounter the mountain gorillas. It is rich with stunning mountains, covered with rainforest, tea and coffee plantations, valleys and lakes, abundant wildlife and friendly local people. Touring around Rwanda is quite easy and fun, given the country’s security and the government’s efforts to encourage and facilitate tourism.
Rice and beans are the staples in Rwanda. Traditional Rwandan cuisine also includes potatoes, plantains called matoke, cassave, and meat (beef, goat, and pork). Sadly enough you will not find any street food in Rwanda. It is maybe not the most exciting cuisine, but it is tasty and diverse enough.
Best time to visit Rwanda is from June to mid-September or from mid- December to beginning of February as these are the dry seasons. Although Rwanda is located just below the equator the temperature is nice all year round due to its high elevation.
Nowadays everyone needs a visa except nationals of East African countries and the DRC. For Germans, Israeli, South Africans, Swedish, British and Americans visas are now available on arrival for US$30. Everyone else needs to apply for a visa in their country of residence at a Rwandan embassy or high commission. The price of the multi-entry visas is US$50, and are valid for 90 days.
