Kigali

Tourism in Rwanda isn't focused on its cities, but more and more travellers are taking the time to visit Kigali, Rwanda's bustling capital. Though Kigali is small and not especially scenic, it is the administrative and financial heart of Rwanda, and home to several interesting attractions like the sobering Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre, which documents the Rwandan genocide of 1994, and the Hotel Milles Collines (made famous in the film Hotel Rwanda).

There are a reasonable number of hotels and a small variety of restaurants in Kigali, and a busy market offering crafts and other souvenirs. There isn't much in the way of nightlife in Kigali; however there are a few bars and nightclubs.

Kigali's location makes it aconvenient stop on multinational treks, with good road links to cities in Uganda, Tanzania and Burundi. Kigali also makes a good base for arranging excursions to Parc National des Volcans, home of Dian Fossey's research station and grave.

Language

Kinyarwanda, French and English are the official languages. French is widely spoken, but English is limited to a few people in the tourist centres.
