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

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.
