Travel Risk Report: Rwanda
You can travel to almost all areas of Rwanda, however security risks vary according to area and the profile of the traveller. Violent crime is rare throughout the country and there are no known terrorist groups, however a series of grenade attacks have occurred in Kigali in recent years. Avoid travel to the Rubavu district in the Western province and to within 10km of the country’s borders with the DRC and Burundi; only go to these areas if you are part of an organised tour in a national park or if you have made arrangements with a security provider. There is a risk of earthquakes and occasional volcanic activity in the vicinity of the Nyiragongo Volcano on the Rwanda/DRC border. Private medical facilities are available in Kigali, but limited elsewhere. Rwanda is listed as a yellow fever country and vaccinations are necessary.
Please be aware this is a brief overview and our advice would be to thoroughly research your destination prior to travel. Our travel risk department can provide country reports, travel risk summaries, advice and support to help mitigate risk further.
