Kigali


The capital and largest city in Rwanda


Located at Rwanda’s geographical heart, the rapidly growing City of Kigali is not only the national capital, but also the country’s most important business centre and main port of entry. 

Kigali City, which started in 1907 under German rule as a small colonial outpost with little link to the outside world, is now 100 years old. Today, Kigali City has come of age as the capital of Rwanda and made phenomenal strides. It is a city that has not just survived, but has prevailed and grown into a modern metropolis.

Although (like all of Rwanda) it saw difficult and hard times through the genocide in 1994 and as power changed hands subsequently, Kigali now has a pleasant, buoyant air and is among the safest and friendliest of African capitals. Kigali City is blessed with a moderate high altitude climate that belies its tropical location, and is conveniently located within three hours drive of the main tourist sites. The Rwandan capital provides both a comfortable and welcoming introduction to this land of a thousand hills and an ideal springboard from which to explore this magical country. 

The main shopping and commercial area is around the Mille Collines Hotel, with the government district on the neighbouring Kaciyiru hill. The markets, the handicrafts, the Muslim quarter and the Genocide memorial are some of the main places of interest. There are only a few luxury accommodation options in Kigali including the Mille Collines Hotel, which is the real 'Hotel Rwanda'.
