Kigali Serena Hotel
Why we like it
- Only 10 kilometres from Kigali International Airport
- The Kigali Memorial Centre, Parliament Building and the Geological Museum, alongside the Kigali City Tour are some of the magnificent things to do and see whilst in Kigali
- Enjoy a relaxing swim in the landscaped pool located in tropical gardens
Holistic treatments available including hot stone massages and body wraps are available in the spa - perfect after trekking for gorillas.
I tracked the Susa group which is the one I really wanted to see - it was almost as if gorillas were tumbling out of every bush, shrub and even at times they seemed to fall from the sky.

Best time to travel
July - September, December - January
The driest months in Rwanda are between July and September and from December to January. The rains tend to fall between April and May and then again from October to November. However, trekking for gorillas involves entering the rainforests so you need to be prepared to get wet and muddy most of the year.
