FIND ME MY DREAM HOLIDAY

Kigali Gorilla Safaris

The largest city in Rwanda, and also the capital, Kigali is located almost exactly at the centre of the country. This thriving, bustling city is the economic, cultural and transport hub of Rwanda, and has been since it was named the nation's capital in 1962.

Kigali is located in a hilly area, and encompasses four ridges and valleys in between. As the city grows, quite rapidly, the city limits are spreading further up the slopes of the higher hills that circle the city. Like most of the country, Kigali saw difficult times during the genocide in 1994, but since then has made a remarkable recovery and is now an attractive and pleasant city to visit. While poverty is still widespread, the local people are warm and friendly, and the city is generally considered to be one of the safest African capitals.

Most Rwanda safari holidays begin and/or end in Kigali, and while there isn't a wide range of accommodation here, it is worth spending a night or two here to explore this vibrant city.

The clean and safe city centre has a number of excellent attractions, including the bustling markets where you can purchase colourful handicrafts. The genocide memorial is also well worth a visit, and provides a moving and enlightening glimpse into Rwanda's past.

Whether you choose to stop here before or after your Rwanda safari, one thing is for certain, Kigali's warm and friendly people will welcome you.
