Why you should not miss Lake Kivu on your Rwanda safari

The fresh, clear water and yellow sand of Lake Kivu would give real South East Asia a run for its money, without the beach vendors and seedy red light regions and always delighted in on safari to Rwanda with African Jungle Adventures Ltd.

Lake Kivu is viewed as one of the considerable lakes in Africa, a perfect travel destination for local people and international tourists away from relatively busy capital, Kigali.

In case you drew a line straightforwardly through the center, a large portion of the lake is in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the other half is in Rwanda.

It is a sleepy destination encompassed by wonderful mountains, including active volcano Mount Nyiragongo, which last emitted in 2002. On a clear evening, a red dimness from lava is obvious from the volcano that is right over the Congo border.

Despite the fact that advertised as a place to unwind after mountain gorilla trekking in the north west of the nation, Lake Kivu has a variety to offer visitors wanting to explore. There are the obvious water ports of sailing and fly skiing but culturally there is a variety to see.

Sport fishing is also famous and fresh fish delicious at local eateries and lodgings. The border of Rwanda and Democratic Republic of Congo, between the towns of Gisenyi (Rwanda) and Goma (DR. Congo) gives an amazing view into trade between the two nations. A lot of people carrying filled sacks on their heads and backs make the daily trip between the towns, selling their products at markets.

The government has encouraged the people in Gisenyi to live around town so as to encourage the forest to re-growth and reproduce the diverse natural surroundings where once chimpanzees lived in abundance. There’s just a small group of chimpanzees in Cyamudongo forest a small section of Nyungwe Forest National Park.

Tea and espresso production is huge here with international companies setting up bases in the region. More than 20,000 tons of tea are produced a year, or 60 tons a day at its peak in wet season. Guided trips are available, beginning with the harvested leaves through to the finished product that is bagged and shipped to Mombasa in Kenya for further distribution around the globe.

Costly car Hire mistakes to Avoid in Uganda

It’s a fact that people do a lot of travel plans for summer or even when it is winter or spring time. Plans that involve traveling and seeing the world of which it proves to be difficult to travel with their own motor vehicle or travel van are scrutinized. This ends up leaving you with no other option apart from going for car renting in Uganda. Therefore, this exposes you to make mistakes that can even cost you a lot when you are renting a car.

As tourists, holiday makers as well businessmen that plan to hit the road for summer times, majority of them will pot to drive rental cars in other parts of the country or the world depending on the conditions. However much of these rental cars seen to be convenient, they have associated costs that are at times found challenging and disturbing due to some mistakes that are made unknowingly or knowingly. These car rental mistakes include the following and how they can be avoided.

Direct renting from Entebbe airport

Renting a car from the airport often means that you are ready to face airport charges and have even less proven accountability. For you to avoid these fees and unplanned costs, I really suggest that you hire car in Kampala away from Entebbe airport. Most of the off-airport rental car service companies provide complete transportation services that are more convenient than booking at airport.

Buying unnecessary extra insurance

Some auto insurance policies cover collision damage and personal liability for temporary use of a rental car and if you use a credit card to book and pay for the rental car, it may provide secondary collision coverage and these credit cards will not consider all other aspects it does not cover. Therefore, make sure you check on the complete coverage before you rent and this will help know the complete coverage.

Avoid not shopping around

Actually, rates may vary depending on the company or the amount of lead time, so it pays to shop around instead of taking a “one-and-done” approach. Some rental car service websites allow you to make comparison between rental companies and look for coupons.
Once you plan to travel long distances, am pretty sure you will access many car rental companies online that actually provide you with the coverage of such benefit where by you and your family will as much distance as you want without any problem. But some may charge an extra fee for an extra distance covered. So when you are renting, make sure that your desired distance is fully covered.

Rushing when inspecting

Before you take your rental car, It is a requirement that you make thorough inspection before you even drive away. You may be charged for damages you didn’t cause. Most of the rental cars in Uganda are maintained in proper conditions but sometimes some minor damages like scratches may not be noticed. Therefore, before you rent a car, make sure that u check it thoroughly to avoid damages you are not responsible for.

Past time return of the rental car

It is a fact the sometimes the planned drive alters with the actual drive to meeting a multiple of expectations and this may eventually lead to late returning of hired car. Most car rental companies in Uganda have extra charges that are sometimes not favorable in-case not expected. It might maybe a 30 minute delay but it might be having a financial consequence to you as well as the rental company. So the charges for late car return may be high. However, if you can communicate to the car hire company and inform them of late return of the car, some times the extra charge can be waived.

It is just 2 hour drive from Kigali International Airport (Rwanda main entry point) to Volcanoes National Park, the home to the endangered mountain gorillas.

African Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda

The mountain gorillas in Rwanda can be tracked throughout the year with no difficulties as the gorillas in Volcanoes National Park do not live in very thick forests. This makes Rwanda the ideal destination for those with interest in going on gorilla safari in Africa. Gorilla tours in Rwanda are also less costly as the transport fares are cheap, the accommodation facilities are also relatively cheap and the gorilla permit is only at 750$ US dollars. A person with interest in taking a gorilla safari in Rwanda is most likely not to spend more than 1200 US dollar on his/her gorilla tour in Rwanda yet what he/she is going to experience is for lifetime, that is, starting from where he/she is going to stay as Rwanda has a wide range of classic accommodation facilities around the gorilla park and in Kigali capital, the food that is served  is delicious and suits all people from different ethnicities in the world.

When searching the gorillas the trackers are able to see other wildlife like different bird and tree species and also the monkeys that over the forest canopies and the journey is commentated by a gorilla patron who narrates impressive stories about the national park and the mountain gorillas.

The epitome of the experience come when the mountain gorillas are found and here the tourists spend one hour with gorillas as they interact with them by watching them feed, play around and at times the young gorillas come towards the trackers to play with them. There is also a session of taking photos of the gorillas.

Why Should East African Countries Develop Air Transport

Air transport is becoming basic for the fast-growing regional population that needs more resources and cross-border cooperation to ease the integration process of the East African Community.

There is a need to promote tourism between member countries like Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya and Tanzania. Tourism is among the top foreign exchange earner in East African countries with Gorilla trekking as the major tourism activity. It should be noted that 80% of the tourists in East Africa come in by air transport.

Air transport plays a significant role in various regional programmes of promoting trade and investments as well as developing regional infrastructure like schools, Healthy centres, roads, Hotels and Lodge among others.

There is a need to quicken transportation of people and goods from one place to another. This will promote express trade of perishable goods and express safaris like one day Gorilla trekking in Rwanda’s Volcanoes national Park.
There is a need to transport VVIP, VIP and other high class persons like presidents, Governors among others. Such person should be highly protected and reach quickly to their destinations to perform their duties.

More so, high quality products like Gold, Diamond and so on. Such products are highly price and need tight security to the market, air transport is the best alternative.

There is a need to overcome traffic jam on roads – the increasing number of vehicles in East Africa has cause delay on our road however, some people who would have used their vehicles to worsen traffic Jam us airport.

Air transport is an integral part of transport infrastructure and a significant sector of the economy. Airports are recognized for their ability to multiply business activity in their proximity and stimulate further development.

There is a need to solve the problem of high growing unemployment cases in East Africa. Aviation creates a large number of jobs. Every million passengers transported create 1000 jobs directly at the airport and a further 2100 in the national economy.

The development of airport infrastructure is important for maintaining the CR’s significance for the European Union. The CR has pledged to other member states that it will provide adequate airport capacity to cover growing demand for air transport.

Despite temporary fluctuations, a significant increase in air traffic may be expected in Europe in upcoming decades. The CR market in this segment has not been saturated and the potential for its development is greater than in other European countries.

Air transport is financially fully self-sufficient. It is the only transportation sector which requires no resources from the state budget. Aviation development may be considered a low-cost alternative for handling increasing transportation demands.

Aviation is an environment-friendly means of transport and one of the most efficient. Globally, air transport has only a 2% share in greenhouse gas creation. Developing this means of transport in the CR does not automatically mean an increased environmental burden. Based upon experience from prior years, a significant drop in aircraft noise and reduction in emissions may also be expected in the future. Furthermore, air transport is much less demanding in terms of land appropriation than other types of transportation, regardless of transport distance.
