From Gisenyi to Kigali the distance of 187 Km on a tarmac road can be covered in only 3 hours but no rush.

You can do as much and as little you want. You can stay on the private beach of your hotel and enjoy the peaceful lake! If you are interested we shall take time to visit some splendid sites on our way: Nyundo with multiple craft-shops, Imbabazi Orphanage at Mugongo. Overnight at your hotel in Kigali. (B-L-D)

Nyundo is one the very earlier Catholic centres in Rwanda (beginning of 20th century) and has among others the only secondary school of arts.

Imbabazi Orphanage was founded by Mrs Rosamond Halsey Carr in late 1994 at Mugongo to care for the genocide orphans. Rosamond Halsey was a young American fashion illustrator when she married an adventurous hunter-explorer, Kenneth Carr. Together they journeyed to then "Congo Belge" DRC now in 1949 where they came to divorce. Kenneth left but Rosamond stayed in Congo until 1955.  From there on she moved to northwest Rwanda where she stayed for the next 50 years. She witnessed all Rwanda's historical  events since then and among them the last was the 1994 genocide. She is the author of Land of a Thousand Hills: my life in Rwanda.
