Contemplating adding Rwanda back into itinerary - question re footwear

Jump to last reply

I had it in during my original planning but took it out due to cost. As we get closer to departure I am doubting myself so looking at adding it back. A bit more complicated to do. This is how the itinerary would shake out

* January 27 - arrive Arusha from the Seregenti and stay overnight
* January 28 - fly early to Kigali - transfer to VNP area hotel late afternoon
* January 29 - return to Kigali after trek
* January 30 - Kigali tour in the AM before our 3:45 flight to Nairobi

I have to move some Delta point flights - which means we can't leave NBO until the 31st and we're finished up with Nomad Tanzania on the 27th.

Now my footwear question - my husband isn't supposed to wear hiking boots - are good support athletic shoes OK? (not high tops). He has a certain brand/model he wears with orthotics that work miracles with his dodgy ankle.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Lynn - just re-reading your Rwanda trip report and looking at the photos - making the decision easy!
