Rwanda Shopping

  • Akabanga!

    AKABANGA!!! It sounds like a war cry ... or perhaps a bellow of pain, as akabanga is the Rwandan condiment of choice, a chilli oil derivative that's hot enough to cauterise the tastebuds of unsuspecting diners!You'll come across akabanga in all Rwandan restaurants, where it appears along with the salt and pepper in little plastic bottles that...

  • Gorilla paraphernalia

    As you might imagine, gorillas feature large in the local crafts on sale throughout Rwanda, and I fell in love with these little chaps. I first bought a mother with a baby on her back, and then we were given the rest as a gift, so we ended up with a proper family group. I can't recall exactly what we paid, but I do know that they're not...

It’s actually a department store offering everything from stationery, appliances, electronics, bedding, camping equipment and household plastics. Did I mention it sells food? Oh, yes it does. They have a German Butchery. Let’s...

  • Go for the Drum...Ya Know You Want One!

    The sounds of Rwanda and Uganda will stay with you, and one of the sounds is the music, the songs sung or played on traditional instruments. One member of our travel group purchased one of the large, beautiful cow skin-covered drums at one of our first roadside shopping stops. She tugged the drum up and down hotel stairs, maneuveured the drum on...
