    General Information

    Climate

    • Rwanda has a year-round tropical highland climate. Temperatures vary by location and altitude with little variation throughout the year. Rain is commonplace in Rwanda with the driest months being June to mid-September and the wettest from mid-February to May and mid-September to mid-December.
    • The dry season sees cloud cover and light rainfall. Roads and paths tend to be easier to navigate during this period.

    Language & Currency

    • The official languages of Rwanda are Kinyarwanda, French, English and Swahili. Nearly all Rwandans speak Kinyarwanda. French, English and Swahili are widely spoken and understood.
    • The local currency is the Rwandan franc, which divides into 100 centimes. US dollars are widely accepted; local currency is best for tipping and small purchases. Very few places accept credit cards outside of the major hotels in Kigali. Access to cash machines is available in most major towns, and exchanging currency can be done in banks and foreign exchange bureaus.

    Visa & Access

    • Most foreign nationals will require a visa for entry to Rwanda. Please check with your local Rwandan Embassy or our travel team for further information. Tourist visas can often be obtained, on arrival, at most ports of entry. The Rwandan government has introduced an online ‘e-visa’ application system for obtaining tourist visas in advance of travel.
    • Kigali International Airport (KGL) is the primary airport serving Rwanda.

    Health

    • At least 6-8 weeks before departure, please visit your local health care provider or travel clinic for any vaccination requirements and to discuss any other potential health risks, such as malaria (where applicable). All travellers should ensure they have a valid travel insurance policy in place.

    For any further questions on Rwanda or your holiday, contact our friendly travel team who will assist you with any information you require.
