Plan Your Rwanda Holiday

Peak season for travel to Rwanda is typically July and August as this is when one of the largest film festivals in Africa takes place in Kigali. The Hillywood Film Fest, so-called because of the thousands of hills around the capital, draws thousands of people every year. We recommend buying your tickets to Rwanda early if you plan on attending this event. The best gorilla trekking is said to be from May to October as this is the dry season, making the hike into the mountains a little easier.

You will find that cheap hotels in Rwanda are usually more plentiful in the December to March time frame which is considered off season for tourists. This is also a great time of year to explore the country without having to contend with throngs of tourists and long queues to enter Rwanda's many national parks. It is also a good idea to brush up on your French as it is one of the main languages spoken in Rwanda. Flight deals to Rwanda can be found very easily on Etihad Airways’ website.
