Generally useful though now a bit outdated. I would have liked it if the guide mentioned that Rwanda is currently run via dictatorship and has been for awhile, however. Generally this means the country is very safe for tourists - the level of violent crime is very low - but it also means you should try to remember that open criticism of the government is something that can get you deported if you're a foreigner and I didn't ask what becomes of citizens.
Great resource if you're planning a trip to Rwanda - I usually choose LP over any other travel guide book, but LP's coverage of Rwanda is short and within it's full length Africa travel book. I was happy with the Philip, Briggs guide. Really helpful in learning about gorilla trekking (what to expect, what to wear, descriptions of gorilla groups and hikes, cost, etc).
