Travel to Kigali

If you plan to visit Rwanda one day, then there’s a good chance that your journey will bring you to Kigali, its capital. Founded in 1907 during the German colonial period, the city became a capital in 1962 when Rwanda gained independence.

You’ll find several memorials, remembrance centers, and museums in Kigali dedicated to the 1994 Rwandan genocide. More than 1 million Tutsi were killed that year, remembered by the Kigali Genocide Memorial Center. You will also wish to reserve some time to tour the Kandt House Museum of Natural History, named after Dr. Richard Kandt, who is credited as being the city’s founder.

You may also wish to take a tour of the Presidential Palace Museum. Guided tours of the museum are mandatory, taking visitors through the life and times of the country’s former dictator.

While in Kigali, be sure to take at least one trip to a craft center in the city. You can find locations that make everything from greeting cards to pottery. If you want to take a long walk, try the Gisozi Circuit, which offers a 10km trail that can provide you with views of rice paddies as you get to know the city a little better.

In Kigali, you can linger at a café with Rwandan coffee and enjoy some friendly conversation. You can strap on some comfortable shoes and go exploring. You can access the natural wonders that are waiting for you outside the city. Make this your next destination and the rewards will be numerous.
