TripAdvisor Reviews Hotel Muhabura Ruhengeri
Travel Blogs from Ruhengeri
Travelled from Lake Bunyonyi to Ugandan-Rwandan border. Drive was stunning - incredible volcanic landscape, beautiful scenery. Every inch of hillside farmed and always the women working the fields. Passed a refugee camp for congolese and sudanese refugees near border. Physically walked across the border and after passport stamps headed to Mawanze …

They’ll come up and try to talk to you when all you want to do is ...
... will always pop up and get in the way. Surprise, it's HILLS. HILLS, HILLS, HILLS. Yeah, that village is only 40 km away, but that 40 km is at an 80 degree angle, and the road is winding and dirt and gravel. Oh yeah, also rain- it rains, and wet dirt roads become mud roads quickly. That plan looks good until you actually get there, at which point, it's a little bit late. That isn't to say that this is all hopeless, just that for all the plans ...
