Rwanda’s vibrant up and coming capital Kigali is the largest city in Rwanda. Kigali has become known as one of the quietest, safest, cleanest and most organized cities in Africa. It is the centre of arts, transportation and culture in Rwanda. Kigali was at the centre of the 1994 genocide and many still associate the city with this period. A visit to the Kigali Genocide Memorial is a great way to pay homage to the memory of those that were killed during this turbulent period and remember why we should not let cultural differences drive us apart.
A tour of the city will take in local highlights such as the Gaddafi Mosque, not built by Gaddafi, but rather named after the nearby road which he did build. The presidential palace has an informative museum and is worth a visit. Guests should stop off at the Inema Arts Centre which showcases some of the best Rwandan contemporary art. Take in local culture in the thriving marketplaces, cafes and restaurants in the city.
