In 2017, the World Economic Forum’s The Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2017 ranks Rwanda as the 9th safest country on earth.  Levels of crime remain relatively low in Rwanda, but there have been cases of increased instances of burglary, theft and mugging in Kigali. You should take sensible precautions. Don’t carry large amounts of money or other valuables during #BeThePeaceWalk.

Soldiers and policemen in Rwanda are friendly and can be of guidance if needed.
