COVID-19-related reasons include:
- The government in the guest’s country of residence issues a Do Not Travel advisory due to COVID-19 for the destination the guest is travelling to.
- The government in the guest’s country of residence restricts all but essential travel.
- The destination the guest is travelling to has entry restrictions in place that prohibit the guest from travelling, such as closed borders or extended quarantine requirements
- International flights are cancelled without alternative routing available for guest to use to reach the destination(s) in the itinerary
Special Terms: COVID-19 and Multi-Country Itineraries
For multi-country itineraries, the ability to change or postpone only applies to destination(s) that qualify due to COVID-19 related reasons. We will make our best efforts to work with suppliers to minimize penalties in non-impacted destinations by rerouting or postponing your journey.
Visa Price Change
The Rwanda Government has increased visa fees from $30 to $50 for single entry visas. This is in line with the rest of the East Africa community. All nationalities can get a visa upon arrival without prior application. Visas can also be issued online or at the office of a diplomatic mission of Rwanda in the applicant’s country of residence.
The Retreat Expansion Construction
The Retreat, Kigali, is currently expanding and the construction will have an impact on the guest stays:
- Construction of eight new villas that will each have a private plunge pool has began. These villas are expected to open in July 2020 and are located 100 meters away from the current rooms on the property.
Please ensure all your guests are informed before their arrival.
New Properties from The Mantis Group
The Mantis Group has taken over management of the Akagera Game Lodge located a short five-minute drive from the south entrance of the park, 20 minutes from Lake Ihema where guests can enjoy water-based safaris. The group also manages Cleo Lake Kivu- a boutique marina hotel in Kibuye and The Kivu Queen, a luxury houseboat on Lake Kivu, both set to open in 2020. We are monitoring both projects and will advise closer to opening. Health and safety for the houseboat will be vital but a houseboat on Lake Kivu would be very interesting.
Scheduled Helicopter Flights
Scheduled helicopter flights are now available between Kigali and Volcanoes, Akagera and Nyungwe Forest National Parks as follows:
