Kigali - Post Report Question and Answers

What kind of vehicle(s) including electric ones do you recommend bringing to post, given the terrain, infrastructure, availability of parts, burglary/carjacking risks, etc.? What kind of car or vehicles do you advise not to bring?

Roads in Kigali are good quality, the same can be said for the national roads in Rwanda. SUVs can be a good type of car to bring. Make sure that there is an official dealership in country for the car you bring as it can be very difficult to ensure good maintenance and repair. Volkswagen and toyotas are most widespread. - Oct 2023

Rwanda has a great road system as it is paved and has few potholes. However, most families like to visit Akagera and do game drives, so SUVs are the most preferred vehicles. Rwanda has hills everywhere, so cars that can accelerate and handle hills are best. - Aug 2023
