Kigali City Tour

The history of Rwanda dates back centuries and Kigali has been a part of it for a hundred years. Founded in 1907 as a German settlement, Kigali did not become the capital until Rwanda’s independence in 1962 when it replaced the colonial seat of power in Butare. Since then, the city has seen major economic development resulting in what it is today; and African city with over one million residents, with wide boulevards, an International Airport, world class hotel and restaurants, craft and curio shops as well as a lively cosmopolitan population. The genocide memorial was established as a centre where visitors can learn about Rwanda’s history from pre-colonial times to the 1994 genocide as well as other genocides world-wide as well as a place for those to mourn loved ones and friends who fell victim to the genocide in the 90’s. Visitors should allow up to 2hrs to tour the exhibitions. An audio tour is provided as well as video on arrival. The memorial gardens may also be accessed. Entrance fee is USD$10 per person. A guided tour of the city will also allow you to learn about the new developments, and Rwanda’s amazing recovery which is a true testament to humankind’s resilience and strength.
