Kigali – the bustling and vibrant city

Ideally positioned within the center of Rwanda, Kigali extends across several hills and valleys. It has good road links to the remainder of the country. The verdant capital city is pleasantly low-key yet dynamic and progressive. With just over a million inhabitants.

First-time visitors to the bustling and vibrant center often remark on how clean the streets are. in addition, it’s a matter of pride across every community throughout the country.

Kigali may be a relatively new city. it had been founded as an administrative outpost in 1907. Furthermore, it has become the capital of the country at independence in 1962, shifting focus far away from Huye.

Moreover, the city’s wide tree-lined boulevards and immaculate squares are safe to walk. Whereas outsiders are generally left to their own devices unless they have assistance, during which case they will be greeted with warm hospitality.

Equally important, there is a burgeoning art scene. With a growing number of options to dine out and have a few drinks, many with charming panoramic views. The Kigali Cultural Village offers a fanatical space for local artisans and food vendors to exhibit and trade their goods.

Kigali is developing rapidly, with new shopping malls, office buildings, and a world-class convention center. It is inbuilt in the style of the King’s Palace of the olden days, which lights up the night sky atop of the many hills.

The central downtown covers Nyarugenge Hill while the government and administrative quarter is further east on Kacyiru Hill.

Nyarutarama Lake, or Lover’s Lake, borders 18-hole golf links in one of the main valleys. The track around the lake is remarkably peaceful and makes for an excellent urban nature walk, with the prospect to see some of Rwanda’s incredible birds.

No visit to Rwanda would be complete without a visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial. This visit, which, through education and peace-building, furthermore honors the memory of the quite one million Rwandans killed in 1994. The three permanent exhibitions and burial gardens form part of a meaningful tribute to those who perished and supply a powerful educational tool for visitors. You are most welcome to Visit Rwanda.
