Inhabited since the 11th-century, Kigali is a relatively new city, sitting on a series of green ridges, lush valleys and colourful centre is kept clean as a matter of pride across every community. The capital city is pleasantly low key yet dynamic and progressive, positioned in the centre of Rwanda. The city’s wide tree-lined boulevards and immaculate squares are good to stroll. There is a growing art scene, as well as new shopping malls, options to dine out, many with charming panoramic views. The Kigali Cultural Village offers a dedicated space for local artisans and food vendors to exhibit and trade their goods.
