Kigali, capital of Kigali prefecture and of Rwanda, is located in central Rwanda.
It is the country’s most important business centre and main port of entry.
Being built in a hilly country, Kigali is blessed with a moderate high altitude
climate that belies its tropical location, and is conveniently located within
three hours drive of the main tourist sites.
Founded in 1907 under German colonial rule, Kigali was made the capital when
Rwanda gained independence in 1962.
Starting on April 7th 1994, Kigali was the scene of the Rwandan Genocide - the
slaughter of approximately one million Tutsis by Hutu militias and the Rwandan
army - and of fighting between the army and Tutsi-dominated rebel forces.
But though damaged, the city's structure has bravely recovered.
Today Kigali is serviced by an efficient international airport and connected
to neighbouring Uganda, Tanzania and Burundi by surfaced roads.
Improving country, rate of life is high, driving is terrible in the sens that people do not know how to use the flicker lights, motorcycle drivers careless. The town is developing in sharp, the corruption is going decreasing, the security is also improving, the security personnel discipline is better than in the neighbored countries. So there is hope for Rwanda to develop fast in most aspects
Kigali is becoming more attractive comparing to the past time, there is a promotion of infrastructures.
Kigali is safe but please find out how you can provide a very useful way of obtaining information about where to go in kigali because the city hides many attractions and cultural venues really fabulous.
Kigali is the best country not to miss. Every clean and safe country to me in. Who ever visited this country is well protected by the country police and night security guard. You can walk during night, you can enjoy the tourist attractions like akagera N.P, Nyungwe forest and many others.
