‘I’ve now spent 2 weeks here and I hardly want to leave. Their new chef does African cuisine better than any place I’ve tried in Musanze or Rwanda.’
‘We loved staying in the Red Rocks Guesthouse, which provided a comfortable home base for excursions to Volcanoes National Park to visit gorillas (an incredible not-to-be-missed experience) and golden monkeys. A stay of three nights also provided time to enjoy Red Rocks.’
‘We learned the rudiments of basket weaving, purchased several gorgeous baskets at very low prices compared to Kigali, admired art work by local children, and visited a local kindergarten.’
‘We recommend Red Rocks for anyone comfortable with local-style, budget accommodations who seeks an authentic Rwandan experience that supports the community by employing and training locals, contributing to schools and sponsoring cultural activities.’
‘This place exceeded my expectations. When you think of Red rocks, you probably think of a hostel type setting.. It’s a lovely well maintained place. Very scenic too. It had more of a luxury resort feel to it.
