    Top Descriptions

    If it weren’t for those mountain gorillas in nearby , would many people visit Ruhengeri? This may be a question you find yourself asking while here. It’s location is good, that’s for sure, with quick connections to and even the . The restaurants and eateries are also of a slightly higher standard here to cater for the higher standard of clientele. Indeed, there is some serious money being thrown about here, but is any of it actually reaching the town and the people of Ruhengeri? Walk the streets a little, hike up to the , and get approached by the town’s familiar hawkers and beggars, and you might just wander where all those greenbacks go. Truthfully, if you don’t have the kind of money necessary to go or do the , you might just want to pass the town quickly by. You can always return when you’re old and rich, right?

    Top Tips

    As many moneyed tourists come here to go in the , Ruhengeri (Musanze) has a better range of accommodations and attached eateries than most other places in Rwanda. Unfortunately, this also increases the hassle factor somewhat and lowers the general value for money.
    Don’t plan on spending too long here unless you’re exploring the national park as there’s very little to do, especially for free.
    Though you may be approached around town by students/guides, unlike other places in East Africa they’re fairly easy to shake off.
