Founded as a German settlement back in 1907, Kigali is the capital and largest city of Rwanda. Enclosed by pretty countryside at the heart of the country, Kigali sprawls across rising hills and valleys and is one of Africa’s most scenic cities.
Rwanda’s capital is wonderfully clean, safe and orderly, and if you are visiting Rwanda you are likely to pass through here at least once. Since the horrors of the genocide in 1994, Kigali has been at the forefront of rebuilding efforts and today is a pleasant, modern city.
The city center, perched on one of the hillsides, beckons travelers with its colourful, tree-lined streets (perfect for strolling) and a friendly atmosphere. Enjoy the food in one of the many excellent eateries, or take the time to explore the markets, boutiques and museums.
Kigali’s central location makes it a great place to start or end your trip in Rwanda. Get in touch with us at the Ultimate Travel Company and we can start building your tailor-made itinerary.
