Great, you have the day off work but how can you make the most of it? Here are some great ways to spend one of Rwanda's public holidays with your family.
Take your family to relax by one of these great pools in Kigali, helping you to grab some much-needed sun whilst your kids splash around.
Take your kids to Cercle Sportif for a good run around on the tennis court or a swim in their pool. Alternatively, you could go horse riding on Mount Kigali with Fezenda Sengha.
If you've got young kids, a public holiday is a great time to take them to some of the local playgrounds in Kigali. Find them here. One great option is La Palisse Hotel, which has a huge outdoor playground and grass area that is perfect spot to have a play date or picnic.
Finally you have an opportunity to cook up a treat in the kitchen whilst teaching your kids essential cooking skills. If you're stuck for inspiration, check out this great pizza dough recipe.
