Consulate General of the Republic of Rwanda in Australia

Please advise on what to wear in Rwanda.

Rwanda has no strict dress code on what to wear, although women travelers are advised to dress sensibly. In business areas, people tend to dress smartly. Cotton clothing is the most comfortable during the day, as it gets quite hot, but the nights tend to be chilly, so a heavy sweater and boots are essential. For gorilla tracking, warm clothing is required as well as walking/hiking boots, a hat and lightweight parka or raincoat.
