Rwanda doesn’t have a culture of ‘wild camping’ and although it is a safe country with low crime rates we advise that you seek out a bar, restaurant, hotel or campsite that will be able to support you during those needed naps. Many of these locations have provision of a walled garden/area. If you choose to rest at the side of the route then be aware you will likely have quite some attention (wanted or unwanted) from locals.
We will provide you with a race map with some information about villages where you’re most likely to find accommodation (you would never be more than 50 km away from such a village). Race participants can sleep for free in some of the checkpoints.
