    Older rooms need attention. Newer rooms are very good.

    The older, less expensive rooms are really showing their age. The are some backup odors in the bathrooms and the balcony doors don't all seal, allowing mosquitoes easy access. Plan on using the mosquito nets if you stay in these rooms. That said, the hotel is still a good value, meals are inexpensive and copious. The staff is very friendly and increasingly professional.

    This hotel offers good value for money on the road to the airport. Older rooms in the main building currently cost USD 60 a night, larger nicer rooms start at around USD 100. Wifi is free and works well. The breakfast buffet, included, is copious and good.

    Don't miss the barbecue pit, a crossroads for Africans and expats. Service is slow, but the food is good and good value.

    Very friendly and helpful staff.

    This morning David came to the hotel at 7:45. James arrived at that time as well. We set out through Kigali and picked up Mr. Mrs. Mundeli, and their daughter Myriam and drove out to Lake Muhazi, a lovely peaceful lake about an hour's drive from central Kigali. The shores a dotted with stands of papyrus which makes me think of Egypt. Of course all …

    This morning a driver named David showed up at 07:00 with a 7-seat 4WD Nissan, we waited for a few others to join us, they arrived at 07:30 and we started out toward Giti. We pulled over just after leaving Kigali to pick up several more passengers, the vehicle was now full, and drove down to very good paved road for 40 km or so, to our turn-off …

    Today was a very full day! I must admit the hippos kept me up again during the night. I slept but fitfully, the animal noises outside were loud and enough to keep me from sleeping soundly. It also rained very heavily off and on during the whole night.

    So it was no trouble being ready to go by 06:00 when the coffee arrived. I walked out on …

    This morning we were ready a few minutes before 7:00 am and the Mundelis were already there with a driver in a big Nissan Patrol. Where we were going we needed a bigger better 4WD than a RAV4 so I had asked Mr. Mundeli to try to find one if possible. We were heading to the oldest national park in Rwanda, Akagera, on the border with Tanzania. It …

    Last day in Rwanda

    Today should be our last day in Rwanda (though one can never be too sure in Africa), and I used it to get caught up on office work. There is quite a bit piling up because our days have been so full. I worked all morning while Marjolaine rested and wrote postcards and finished various other housekeeping tasks. At lunch time we took a taxi into …
