Are you planning on travelling to Rwanda any time soon? We spent about 5 weeks travelling around the country and collecting information about accommodation, transport, food, backpacking, activities and the overall feeling of travel through Rwanda.

We were wondering about these things too, so we compiled what we learnt in this post! And check out our GIVEAWAY too!
