Rwanda is generally considered safer compared to other neighboring countries. It does have both violent and non-violent crime, including robbery, and assaults, but partaking in general security precautions can manage risks to a good extent. Kigali, like any other city does have thefts, robbery, and muggings.
The border with the DRC and Burundi is considered a much higher risk, and there have been armed attacks in Rwanda’s Forests and National Parks. It is strongly recommended that any persons moving towards these locations contact us for further discussion.
Roads from Kigali to other cities are generally in good condition, but driving standards vary massively and any trips outside of Kigali should have a robust journey management plan implemented.
