CAMPING FOR A GOOD CAUSE: ONE LOVE


One Love Club is the only place you can camp in Kigali. They have showers and toilets - but you must have your own tent. They also offer basic rooms with en-suit bathrooms, balconies and some cooking facilities. One Love Club is set in some very nice gardens and they have a bar and Rwandan/European restaurant as well. You stay supports an NGO called the Mulindi Japan One Love Project helping disabled people in Rwanda. So it’s for a good cause. They offer 24-hour security, car parking and you can even stay for a month at a time.

(The big signs outside say One Love Heritage Gallery & Library)

You can make donations on their website!

BEAUSEJOUR: NOT WORTH THE MONEY !


The only reason I stayed here was the fact that they answered an email. I paid $45 for a dingy room around the back of this place. From the outside this is an amazing hotel to look at. It is set in dramatic gardens that are absolutely beautiful. Then they lead me through the gardens to an old building and put me in what I would guess was their worst room. For $45 I can get a modern hotel room in England with a better bed, modern bathroom and satellite TV! I did get a mosquito net and a candle with matches. The bathroom was basic. I think they are used to European Tourists who think this is a bargain. It is not! I stayed at a better hotel in the heart of Kigali for $16 less a night.

This hotel has a run-down look to it and the money is certainly not spent on modernisation. I was charged $45 for a single. Some of their prices were in the $80-90 range. I have no idea what you are paying for. Stay somewhere else. For $90 you could get a seriously nice hotel in Kigali.



SUPER-AMAZING GARDENS
