Kigali Holidays

Rwanda's heartwarming capital

Having taken huge strides forward from its saddening past, Kigali has since seen a vibrant, inspiring and artistic rebirth. Take a sobering trip to both the Kigali Genocide Memorial Museum and the Camp Kigali Memorial, honouring the stories of its victims and demonstrating just how resilient and inspiring its locals really are, and embrace Kigali’s growing contemporary art scene at Inema Arts Centre.

Stop off at Kirimonko Market to browse local wares. Shop for hand-crafted souvenirs and vibrant textiles, immersing yourself in the fast pace of this traditional African marketplace, and dine on delicious goat brochettes before sipping sundowner cocktails at one of Kigali’s trendy bars.

Kigali’s central location makes it a convenient base from which to begin your Rwandan adventure. Join an exhilarating game drive through Akagera National Park in search of the Big Five, walk above the lush green canopies of Nyungwe Forest, or trek through the spectacular Volcanoes National Park, taking in the incredible scenery and preparing yourself for an unforgettable encounter with Rwanda’s mountain gorilla.
