Kigali

4
A vacation in Kigali, Rwanda's capital city and economic hub, lets you experience the very heart of a landlocked country from a pleasant, safe, and organized base point. Sprawled across the verdant hills in the country's central region, Kigali boasts a mild, warm climate, leafy avenues, and a vibrant dining scene. Delve into Rwanda's turbulent history, especially the tragic 1994 genocide, on a tour of the city's museums and landmarks, or take in the buzzing atmosphere of the bars and restaurants. Vibrant marketplaces, home to a variety of local clothing and traditional handicrafts stores, make a good addition to your Kigali itinerary. Kigali is in Kigali Province. When using our Rwanda trip site to make an itinerary online, Kigali holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Kigali

Kigali boasts a wide array of lodging options spread out across its hilly neighborhoods, but truly budget-friendly options remain scarce. Except for youth hostels, most of the accommodations in Kigali consist of modern, simple hotels in the mid-market range that cater to a variety of crowds, from diplomats and aid workers, to tourists and businesspeople. Only a few larger hotels offer 4- and 5-star services in Kigali.
