Hello! I will be having 3 clear days in Kigali and wish to go places around. Akagera game park, Parc National Des Volcans, Nyungwe Mountain Rain Forest are the places I plan to visit. I have no idea about how to reach these places, expenses on hiring a vehicle all the way, any permits required, approx expenses when in these places for hiring a 4wd vehicle or guides.

We have been told as new tourists coming in to help at a school and orphanage outside of Kigali, that Nakumatt Store has almost everything one would need? Is this true? Or what place is better?

My husband and I have just finished a learning guide to Hotel Rwanda and sometimes in April for our web site. We've heard Mr. Rusesabagina speak, and were really looking forward to staying at the Mille Collines, but have read awful things. Hotel Intercon. sounds too international/luxe. Can anybody recommend a hotel that is small, charming, clean, where we can really talk to Rwandans? How about Gorillas or Okapi (Sp?)
