If you know Gisenyi, you know the emblematic Paradis Malahide. Since few months, the owner of this hotel has opened a new one, called Paradis Kivu Resort. You will recognize the design style but here it is with a little bit more of luxury. Located after the Bralirwa, near the Congo Nile Trail , Kivu Paradis is a little gem on the shore of Lake Kivu . When you arrive, you will walk to a little path surrounded by luxuriant plants and flowers to join the lobby of the hotel. You will immediately feel all the serenity and calm this place has to offer.
Founded by parents, the concept behind Koko Club was to have a space where kids can play together safely, while parent can chill with good and healthy food. The place is awesome and with my family, it is clearly our new Sunday ‘s spot.
Diani Beach is a major beach resort on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya, it is located 30 kilometers south of Mombasa. It can be reached directly by plane, but from Kigali it was easy to have a flight to Mombasa , and then using the ferry and road to arrive at this small paradise .
This town was just a fishing place 40 years ago, but in the 70s when tourists wishing to come to Africa found Kenya the ideal place, as there was so much strife and problems in other African countries and it was the beginning of a touristic boom. Hotels were built along the coast road, which was at that time a dusty road. Since then Diani has continued to expend without losing its charm and simple atmosphere. You will not feel that you are in a very touristic area if you avoid the big hotels.
Rwanda, and its capital Kigali, are known as an expensive destination, but affordable and budget friendly hotels exist. Inside Afrika is one of them.

There is since one or two years now, a very nice place in Gisenyi. It is clearly a must-go when you are in town. Calafia café is a little gem . The atmosphere , the decoration, the coffee, the pastries, everything here is always perfect and delicious. The waiters are lovely. The cafe is located near Grande Barrière. It is a old house which has been « pimped » . The feeling when you arrive is that you are now in a little oasis.
I love Airbnb. When we arrived in 2014, this service was almost unavailable. Since then , hopefully for me, the offer has increased. What I love with Airbnb is to have the comfort of a home and this feeling that you live there… Even if it is for 3 days only. With kids it is really great, you can follow their rythm, they have more place to play and can make more noise. With friends also ( for the exactly same reasons 🙂 ).
