Kigali


The phoenix of Rwanda


Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Kigali has overcome its dark past to become one of most striking and secure cities in Africa and the pride of Rwanda. Lush hillsides rise up to meandering avenues and streets bustling with people in this cosmopolitan metropolis. Located in the geographical heart of Rwanda, Kigali is also a launchpad from which to explore the country’s many natural wonders.

The vibrant shopping malls in the city centre with their boutiques and coffee shops display the modern nature of the city. For a really Rwandan experience, a visit to its lively markets will provide authenticity in spades, as visitors are met with friendly smiles and touts selling their wares. But a trip to Kigali is not complete without a visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial where visitors can get a sombre grip on the country’s dark history and marvel at its bright future.

Despite its tropical location, Kigali has a moderate high-altitude climate, sheltering it from the sweltering heat of the surrounding areas. The city is a convenient distance away from popular tourist sites and houses the Kigali International Airport, making it the ideal entryway into the country.
