While planning my trip to Uganda, but flying into Kigali, I could find no fast & easy solution for transportation over the Rwandan/Ugandan border. From chatrooms I found this was a common question & problem. I have just returned from Uganda feeling so grateful for having solved the problem in such an efficient, painless way. Through a conract at a resort in Lake Bunyonyi, I was given the name of Ivan, living in Kabale who agreed to pick me up in Kigali even at 2AM. Ivan was friendly, efficient and so very professional.
One has to have experienced this border crossing to know what a nightmare it truly is. Even at 3AM there were dozens of buses, hundreds of people lined up & luggage everywhere in the mud in almost complete darkness. Ivan had all the paperwork done in advance and although officials were slow, we sailed through the process quite painlessly. In addition, Ivan was a such a careful, proficient driver and as it happened it was a very foggy night on a dangerous twisting road. I felt so secure in his care.
I can’t say enough about how easy & painless Ivan made this trip - a wonderful start to my vacation. His price was very reasonable and certainly worth every penny. I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly.
One more important note. Special hires are only allowed in a holding area in the airport and not near the carousel. Don’t be conned by one of the airport baggage handlers like I initially was.
