How to see Rwanda: Gorillas and Genocide History???All advice appreciated

Jump to last reply

First off, thank you all for your advice and travel reports......invaluable...

I teach a genocide studies elective in addition to my normal classes. I also love animals, so after I'd planned a safari in Tanzania and a trek up Kilimanjaro I realized there was no way I could travel to that region of the world and not visit Rwanda.

I have read numerous recommendations already, so thank you. I realize that I could take the bus, and I'd like to, but I do not think my girlfriend or her family would be comfortable with us doing that. Should I use a tour operator? Could I just contact ITT and get a driver? Would I need one for all of these dates or be able to just walk to a few places, take a taxi?? As a teacher I dont have much money! :) This is my planned itinerary at the moment:

FLY FROM US TO AFRICA, Kigali
Day 1 Arrive Kigali, Recover from 2 days of traveling at the Intercontinental so we can enjoy the Gorillas!

Day 2 Visit Kigali Genocide Memorial, travel to either Kinigi Rest House or Gorilla's Nest
Driver needed this day?

Day 3 Gorilla Trek/Gorilla's Nest or Kinigi
No driver?

Day 4 Gorilla Trek/back to Intercontinental
No driver?

Day 5 Genocide Memorial-Murambi, Nyamata and Ntarama possible as well on this day???
Driver needed?

Day 6 Genocide Memorial, ), Nyamata and Ntarama then Friday Rwanda Air flight to Kilimanjaro flight time: 11.00AM

Any advice would be greatly appreciated since I don't know distances. If there is anything I shouldtn miss, but can do safely on the cheap, Id definitely be interested! Thanks.
