What is the best way to travel around Rwanda?

Taxis and car hire with a driver are probably the safest and easiest ways to travel around Rwanda for international visitors. You can drive yourself, but some roads aren’t paved and night driving is dangerous with erratic headlight use by local drivers. Landslides are common in spring and fall, as well. Car hire from Europcar and other local companies is available at most hotels and the airport. Taxis should have an orange stripe to denote their official status.

However, they can be risky because of driving habits and road conditions.
