Carrying money in Rwanda

Kalen asks 

“Hi Phillip! I’m traveling to Rwanda soon for an internship, and your book has been an unbelievable resource. I have to carry a large amount of cash with me ( about 3000 USD) do you have any recommendations on how to carry it? I am not staying in Kigali, I will be in the Nyamagabe district and am nervous that credit cards will not be accepted. I would appreciate any insight you could offer!”

    Hi Kalen,
    Yes credit cards are useless outside Kigali, but it is easy to draw money against them at the Access Bank in Kigali., so if you go to the capital quite often, as many people do (small country), you needn’t carry all the money you need from the start of the trip.
    Cheers, Philip
