    Post Office

    by thelittlevoice Written Dec 12, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: My cellphone didn't work there so the only trust-worthy place to make an international call is at the post office.

    A postcard can be sent for RFr150(I only sent a bunch to Europe and Asia so I don't know if the price is also the same for other parts of the world or not).

    Open from 8am to 5pm on weekdays and 8am to 12pm on Sat.

    Cross the street from ORTPN, walk pass Shell gas station.

    Kigali City Tour

    by thelittlevoice Written Dec 11, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: A city tour operated by ORTPN. It takes 4 hours and $20 each. There're 2 tours, one from 8am to 12pm and 2pm to 6pm. It said minimum 4 persons on its brochure but it was only me and my friend on that tour. The bus was nice too. I'll edit this trip later with all places they took us to.

    This tourist office is just around the corner from the post office.

  • There are so many things that...

    by Grimster Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are so many things that I could put here. A trip around the busy market is a must where you can buy everything from Green Bananas to bits of material etc. But the most beautiful place to be has to be Gisenyi or Kibuye on the shore of Lake Kivu. Stunning !

    Fondest memory: The best thing I have done in Rwanda is to go to Lake Muhazi and skinny dip ! Very nice, although a little bit cold. I was camping right opposite where the President keeps his cows !!

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Go to the Parc National de Vulcans.
    It was here that we hiked through the mountainous jungle to see the gorillas. It was exhausting but exillerating. After bush bashing for so long you suddenly enter a clearing and see a few gorillas. As your eyes adjust to the dark under the canopy you realise there are 6 in front of you..and 6 more behind you. They just eat there way past you. The young ones come very close to look at you which is great, you just hope mum realizes we mean no harm. We then saw the silverback, who ripped out a small tree, broke it in half and threw the 2 pieces at us. He was trying to show who was boss....he was successful!

    Fondest memory: Hitchiking in Rwanda was easy. I travelled on the back of trucks, up front on a truck (luxury)and I just stopped and ate with the locals. You do get a little sick of goat, but the sugar cane was a real treat.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: go hiking in the Birunga National Park in search of wildlife. There's more in my travelogue.

    Fondest memory: Rushour early in the mornings when the roads and markets start getting busy with all that hustle bustle.
