Getting To Us

Umusambi Village is located in Kigali city in Rwanda.

It is easily accessed by car, taxi, bus or motorbike taxi. It is unlikely to be walking distance from where you are staying.

Umusambi Village is located on KK 3 Road, out past Kigali airport and on the road that leads to the Eastern Province. It is about a 20-minute drive from the city centre. It is an easy stop off on your way to or from Akagera National Park, as well as very near the airport if you want a last excursion before flying home!

Directions from Kigali:

We are located inside the entrance to Bambino Supercity, just before reaching Kabuga. Continue on KK3 Road past the blue Inyange factory and when you pass a line of red and white striped bollards in the middle of the road, look out for the Bambino entrance immediately on your right. It has a big red arch over the entrance. Drive down towards the fountain and you will see the entrance to Umusambi Village in front of you.

Free parking is available on site.

Opening Hours:

We are open every day from 8am to 5pm (Last entry 4pm).

Exclusive, early morning or evening tours available on request.
