Traveling to Musanze, Rwanda

Rwanda has one international airport located in the capital city of Kigali, Kigali International Airport. While it is possible to take a bus from Rwanda’s neighboring countries, the best suggested option for teams is to fly into Kigali where they will meet with an arranged transport vehicle to Musanze.

Musanze is approximately a two-hour drive from the Kigali airport, easily navigable and on smoothly paved roads. Renting vehicles is difficult in Rwanda so it is very important to arrange a car and driver prior to arrival. Team Rwanda Cycling and/or FERWACY have limited vehicles and can arrange transportation at your cost if arrangements are made ahead of time with Kimberly Coats,
