Kigali is Rwanda’s rapidly growing vibrant capital city and most important business centre in the country. Founded in 1907 as a small colonial outpost with limited linkage to the outside world, it has today grown into a modern metropolis – the heart of the emerging Rwandan economy and the safest and cleanest capital city on the continent of Africa.

Kigali is the gateway city to the land of a thousand hills. Before heading out on one of Rwanda’s wonderful travel adventures showcased in the ‘Get Around’ section, you will be delighted by our many varied restaurants, coffee shops and nightlife options in which to ‘Dine Around Kigali (Download)’. A haven for all things arts and culture, we have presented a range of craft, fashion, art and souvenir shops for you to explore. We invite you to enjoy the best of what our city has to offer.
