In Kihihi we refreshed our provisions as this is the last well equipped location when You are heading for Bwindi Forest or Rwanda. Two of us took a motorbike-taxi for a sightseeomg tour through the village.

Kihihi village is situated some 30 km east of the border to Congo in the Kanungu District,. It has about 25.000 inhabitants and is still growing. As it is so close to the border it holds offices and a refugee camp of the UNHCR. An Ebola treatment unit has just been constructed at the Kihihi Health Centre. The first Ebola case outside Congo was registered in the area in 2019.

Here wooden bikes for human and farming products transportation are stil in use as there is a regional farmers` market.
