public transportation between Kigali airport and Gisenyi

I am planning to visit Rwanda. I like to stay in Kigali for 3 nights, then head to Gisenyi. How can I get Gisenyi from Kigali?

I want to directly go to Kigali airport from Gisenyi. Can anyone tell me is there any public transportation between Kigali airport and Gisenyi?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

There is no direct transport from Gisenyi to Kigali airport. You can have a public transport from Gisenyi to Kigali Bus station then a specail tax transport from the bus station to the airport.

Regards

All Public Buses from Kigali to Gisenyi are available at NYABUGOGO BUS STATION.

The cost is RW 3,000 one way.

Its not a direct bus,so expect several stop overs en-route as it drops and picks other passengers

It can take upto 3.5hrs to 4hrs and there are daily departures after two hours or once the bus gets full with passengers at the main office.

I hope this helps!

Cheers.

A few above have provided partial information. Complete is as below:

a) Taxi from Kigali Airport to Gisenyi border / Gisenyi town - $75 from us at ali@jefferytravels.com (+243 81 9748012)

b) From Kigali Airport to Nyabugogo bus station in Kigali by either moto-taxi for around Rwandese Francs 1,500 or taxi for $15. Then public bus that moves every 30 minutes. But best is the big NATCO Bus. All are same price Rwandese Francs 3,000. The bus will reach Gisenyi in about 5 hours. From Gisenyi Bus station, take another taxi for 5,000 Francs or Moto-taxi for 500 Rwandese Francs to 'La Corniche' border post or simply dismount at Gisenyi town, if that is your destination.

1,000 Rwandese Francs = 0.85$
