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.

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. Make sure that you agree on fares in advance to avoid being overcharged, however. Bike and scooter taxis are cheap and accessible and offer the quickest transportation. However, they can be risky because of driving habits and road conditions.
