Kigali and central Rwanda

Kigali is the capital of Rwanda, located in the heart of the country. It is one of Africa's most attractive capital cities, spanning over the hillsides and valleys and surrounded by lush green countryside.

The center of Kigali, which is bustling and colorful, is impressively clean, efficient and safe. Peaceful, tree-lined streets stretch outwards and generally downwards from the city's heart, while the government and administrative districts are located on a neighboring hill in an area known as Kacyiru. The city has a good number of restaurants, bustling markets, and well-presented museums to explore during your stay.

The capital, along with the rest of the country, has put a lot of time and effort into rebuilding itself after the horrors of the genocide in 1994. On the last Saturday of the month there is a "clean up day" where all residents spend the day tidying, cleaning, painting and working on community projects, which has resulted in a real sense of community spirit, and one of the cleanest African cities we've seen. This is just one example of the city's vibrance and the Rwandan's determination to transform their future into a hopeful one.
