Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

Hotel des Mille Collines £££££

  • Rwanda

Famous in the past as the star of the Oscar-nominated film, Hotel Rwanda, this modern and lively hotel is a fun place to relax in Kigali. The small, pool and bar area serves delicious snacks, washed down with a great selection of local beers against a soundtrack of excellent live music, so retains a good local flavour. The rooms are pretty slick and functional, but much more welcoming than the size of the building would suggest. For those wanting a little more peace, the covered, open-sided rooftop restaurant offers views, fine dining and fresh air.

Kigali Serena Hotel £££££

  • Rwanda
  • City

The former Intercontinental, the Kigali Serena Hotel sits very much in the business category of hotels, so with this comes a slick service and whole range of facilities. It is a little on the larger side with over 100 rooms, but they are all well turned out, clean and surprisingly big. When you step into the cavernous lobby, you know what you are getting, smiles, professionalism and incredibly helpful staff. Despite a more corporate feel than other options in the city, this is still a great choice if you want to catch up on a few home comforts before or after gorilla trekking and one of the most international hotels from a luxury point of view. It even has a gym and a pool, the former we doubt you’ll use, but the latter a nice spot to sit in the sun and relax before your flight home.
