Ruhengeri

A little less popular with tourists, but located within the appealing Rwanda, Ruhengeri is an undiscovered gem.

Ruhengeri Vacation Packages

Ruhengeri sits 45 miles from the major city of Kigali.

Breathe in the ocean air at Gisenyi Beach, 30 miles to the southwest.

The area surrounding Ruhengeri is graced with some splendid natural areas. Two highly recommended attractions close by to Ruhengeri are Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (30 miles away) and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park (10 miles away).

Offer your repects and learn a thing or two about the area's religious aspects with a visit to Shyira Diocese Cathedral and Cathedral of Ruhengeri.

Need ideas for a day trip? Musanze is 1 mile to the northwest, while Nyakinama is 4 miles to the south.

Gikondo, a regional hub, is another great place to visit. It's 45 miles from Ruhengeri and features a variety of worthwhile things to do and see, such as Inema Art Center, Mambas Club and Union Trade Center. Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre and Kigali Memorial Centre / Gisozi Genocide Memorial Centre are additional places if you're not short on time.

Have a break from touring around and spend some time in the water wind surfing and canoeing.

Make sure you take your taste buds on a tour of the region's favorite food and drinks.

To discover the true essence of the region, be sure to taste popular ingredients like corn and peas.

A couple of common dishes worth tasting are isombe (cassava leaves with eggplant and spinach) and mizuzu (fried plantations).

No dining experience can come to an end until you've had a delicious dessert. Fruit will definitely do the job.

Quench your thirst with a pint of refreshing beer. Urwagwa (banana beer) is right up there with the best.

If you are on the lookout for an alcohol-free drink, one option is maraba coffee.

You'll appreciate the festivities for Independence Day, a national day of festivities that takes place on the 1st of July.

For those who plan on traveling by plane, keep in mind that the nearest airport is roughly 45 miles to the southeast.

Accommodation in Ruhengeri

We strongly suggest that you make reservations for a hotel as soon as your itinerary is confirmed, because Expedia's Ruhengeri lodging guide currently doesn't feature a huge selection of lodgings.
