Rwanda Business Travel Guide
WHEN IT COMES to travelling around Rwanda, there are an abundance of options that will allow for a relatively relaxed trip when it comes to navigating your way around the country. With a reasonable road system – due mostly to its small size – the only major unsealed roads you will encounter are those running along the shoreline or Lake Kivu, which are currently in the process of being sealed.
You will find the privately run buses incredibly well organised, better so than any you will find in the rest of East Africa with regular and scheduled departures. It is advisable to buy your bus tickets at the available bus offices prior to travelling, as you will be guaranteed a seat. Rwanda prides itself on offering efficient and reliable public transport to take you from A to B and with the privately run buses covering the entire country, you won’t find yourself waiting for long to start your day.
When you have a little more spare time for exploring, you will find most towns small enough to negotiate by foot, however, when in Kigali and Huye both are set across several steep hills so perhaps consider a bus or taxi for the cities.
You will find taxis are readily available in Kigali, with moto-taxis providing a cheaper and faster service. You will only really need to make use of them in the capital, however they are available in most other major towns should you need them.
