BBQ chez Friel-Karangwa

We'll be hosting you in our Kigali garden for an afternoon of beers & brochettes, Rwandan-style!

We recommend travelling to Rubavu this day. It's a 3-4hr drive through beautiful hills. We'll organise some buses, and share info on other transport options closer to the time. There are lots of accommodation options around the wedding venue. More info on this to follow!
