Kigali

WHY VISIT KIGALI

  • Explore the Nyamirambo district, stopping at one of the lively bars and cafes
  • Visit to the local handicraft co-operative at Capalki for some colourful souvenirs
  • Pay your respects at the moving – and very emotional – Genocide Memorial
  • Take in the views across the city at the State House and Natural History Museum

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT KIGALI

Small, charming and with a surprisingly buoyant atmosphere, Kigali is a great place to explore on foot. Whilst there is little to do in the way of tourist attractions, the dignified Genocide Memorial Centre offers a testament to the strength and dignity of the Rwandese people. The city itself is
scattered across a number of hills and a handful of smart, boutique cafes and restaurants allow for the coffee fix if needed – but given where you are, you should really ask for tea.

Whilst Kigali itself is a colourful and chaotic city, it does not suffer from many of the problems of other African cities and is welcoming and clean (Rwanda has just banned plastic bags and runs a number of buses on bio-fuel). Kigali also offers a good place from which to start or end your journey given its central location with a number of surprisingly great restaurants and cafes and a number of colourful markets keeping you busy.

BEYOND THE ORDINARY

Once a month, the whole country gets involved with a national day of clearing up – known as Umuganda – streets are swept, rubbish cleared and neighbours welcomed. The Rwandese rightly take pride in their beautiful country.
