What are the best things to see and do in Kigali Area?

Hello,

I am traveling to Rwanda for only a few days, I want to see the culture, art and why ever else I can see. I am doing a Gorilla in Uganda (it’s cheaper) and after Rwanda I am going to Kenya. I am not scared to adventure outside of Kigali (it’s only my base camp) so if you have any ideas or concepts let me know

Thank You knowledgeable people.

Hi John

I highly recommend the Genocide Museum and Ghaya Links. http://gahayalinks.com/

There are also alot of great markets and excellent restaurants. I highly recommend Republik.

Hotel Milles Collines is well worth a visit if you know/have watched Hotel Rwanda. Its quite eerie looking at that swimming pool and thinking of all the past atrocities.

Happy travels,

Kim

Thank You Kim, the restaurant Republik, would that be the same as Repub Lounge that comes up on Trip Advisor?

A visit to the Genocide Memorial is highly recommended. Kibuye on Lake Kivu is beautiful and not that far from Kigali, Rwanda is actually very small. I can also recommend Ikirezi book shop and the coffee shop next door if you need time out. We also enjoyed a meal at the Lallibella Ethiopian restaurant.
