    Practical information for your trip to Kigali and Rwanda

    • Brussels Airlines flights arrive and depart from Kigali International Airport, located on the east side of Kigali, about 12 km from the city. A very well-organized taxi rank awaits arriving passengers and, for about RWF15.000/€14, you will be whisked into central Kigali.
    • Current local time in Kigali:  
    • Currency: local currency is the Rwandan Franc. Some hotels, restaurants and tour operators accept dollars. Most banks in larger towns have international ATMs, credit cards are accepted, but it’s always best to have some cash available.
    • Telephone calls and Wi-Fi: The dialling code for Rwanda is +250. Wi-Fi is only available in some hotels and restaurants.
    • Electric sockets: Electricity in Rwanda is 230 Volts and plugs have two round pins. If you have a device that does not accept 230 Volts at 50 Hertz, you will need a voltage converter.
    • Travel information: You will need a visa to enter Rwanda and a passport which is valid 6 months after your arrival. Want to visit some other East African countries (such as Kenya and Uganda )? Then you can apply for a joint tourist visa obtainable from any of the three countries’ embassies. Apart from saving money compared to the price of the separate visas, the East Africa Tourist visa also saves on red tape. For more information on visas and travel documents, visit the website
    • Vaccination: You should be vaccinated against Yellow Fever; no other vaccinations are mandatory. For more health information, visit the website

    When to go to Kigali and Rwanda?

    Rwanda can be visited and enjoyed any time of the year. Rwanda’s weather is moderate; it’s never too hot or too cold. The dry season, which lasts from mid-May to mid-October, is the best time for hiking and mountain climbing, however the landscape is not as “green” as it is during the wet season, which runs from mid-October to mid-May. The Northeast has a lot more rain due to the volcanoes being covered in rainforest. Karisimbi (the highest peak in Rwanda at 2,507 meters) is usually covered with snow.
