Kigali (Rwanda)

A country reborn from its wounds

In the centre of Rwanda, you will find its beautiful capital, Kigali. This city with a difficult past is reborn from its wounds, to become a dynamic city that is modernizing and opening up to the business world. Buildings with ultra-modern architecture have emerged, such as the Convention Centre with its colourful dome or the tower of the Kigali Center, with its shops, offices and cinema. In Kigali, cleanliness is an affair of state.

It is very enjoyable to get lost in the alleys to enjoy the pleasant atmosphere. Visit the Nyamirambo district to go shopping, or enjoy a ball of manioc flour or red beans in one of its restaurants! Kimironko market, the largest in the city, is a must-see. You will find coloured fabrics, clothes, crafts, fruits and vegetables. To learn more about the history of the city and Rwanda, before and after its colonization, visit the Kandt Museum.

Next to this place, a superb garden will welcome you for a shady break. Rwanda’s history has been marked by the 1994 genocides. In order to never forget these shocking events, the Genocide Memorial pays tribute to the victims, while evoking other genocides in history. As you leave the memorial, an amphitheatre will offer you a beautiful view of the city, which will help you to recover from your emotions.

Kigali is a destination that offers great opportunities for tourism and business. Located in the heart of the country, it will allow you to easily reach all the sites. As you walk through its downtown area, you will be amazed to experience a true sense of well-being. The warmth of the inhabitants, the city’s ecological commitment and its progress towards a stable and prosperous future make it the ideal place for your next trip to Africa.
