Product Description


"An excellent book that I have recommended to all visitors who come to Rwanda and want to know more than just the superficial accounts from the press." --Dr. Annette Lanjouw, Director of the International Gorilla Conservation Programme

"This travelguide explains the complex history and the chronology of events leading up to the 6th April 2004 and the days since, in excellently researched detail, and lends the reader a true sense of understanding of Rwanda. The pages are thorough in their detail without being cluttered with extraneous passages and unnecessary paragraphs. In short, Booth is to be applauded for making such a complex and thorny subject so lucid." --Lee Ridley, Polo's Bastards

"Every now and again you come across a guidebook which goes far above and beyond the humdrum list of exchange rates, visa requirements and one-line descriptions of sights and amenities. This guide is just such a book. It gives the prospective visitor real and detailed insights into the country, its people, history, flora and fauna. Even if you end up never going to Rwanda, you will feel you know the place quite intimately by the time you get to the final page." --Wildside

5.0 out of 5 stars essential packing 22 July 2008
By R. Rees
The only alternative to the Bradt guide is a tiny chapter in Lonely Planet's East Africa guide which doesn't even compare.
The first half of the book goes into the history, (both natural and human) and cultural, travel and other issues that a traveller needs to know. The second half is the guide-book and combines useful information for travellers such as where to eat, sleep and how to get around, with good accuracy. It also has a fantastic feature of articles of interest throughout the book to add colour and detail to every stop.
Prices are now a little out of date, but otherwise great. Get it before hand and read the mine of information it holds.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Guide 25 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A most infomative guide to this fascinating country. Allow plenty of time to read it thoroughly before you go it contains a great deal of information. My experience of Rwanda echoes everything I read in this book. I can definitely recommend it.

We have recently visited Rwanda and found the Bradt guide to be excellent. Really informative with some great places to visit.
We even took in some of the bar's recommended in Kigali. I would recomend not only to visit this wonderful Country but ensure you take a copy of this book with you. The information about the history, genocide and the people is all very relevant reading & very informative.
A must for any visitor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking Good 6 Aug 2012
I am just back from a two week trip in Rwanda. I used the Bradt Guide by Philip Briggs. I am an experienced traveller, and I know sometimes the logistics, permuations, and sometimes facts can be hard to distill into sound advice. Somehow Philip does has the knack of bringing it all together in a way that is helpful, efficient, insightful and sometimes entertaining. Over the years I have used several books by this author and I must say, I like his style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and comprehensive guide on Rwanda 4 May 2011
We have made a self-drive camping holidays to Uganda and Rwanda earlier this year, and used this Bradt Rwanda guidebook to plan and conduct our itinerary. By writing this guidebook, Philip Briggs has shown again that Bradt guides are among the best guidebooks to cover the African continent.
Philip writes knowledgeable and with enthousiasm even on small community based tourism activities.
Apart from the guidebook, we have found Philip's website where he archives updates and feedback from travellers very useful.
Very recommended!
