KIGALI

Land of thousand hills

Kigali

Rwanda’s capital and biggest city is built across an undulating series of lush hills surrounded by higher mountains, the largest of which is Mount Kigali, rising 1,850 metres above sea level. Kigali is the country’s financial, commercial and cultural hub, served by an international airport and featuring a wide range of accommodation options, restaurants and points of interest, including the Kigali Genocide Centre, an atmospheric market and numerous craft shops.

This is one of the must do things when you land on the Land of thousand hills and thousand smiles if you have a half day or full day to spare in Kigali before transferring to your next destination. Our Kigali City Tour combine your preferred choices of the below “Kigali Experiences” to make for a truly memorable half or full day of culture, the arts, micro-industries, fashion, food and history.

Simply view the choices below and mention which activities interest you most and we are here to make that happen and answer you questions.

Best time to travel to Kigali
