KIGALI CITY TOUR

DESCRIPTION

The tour encompasses the best of Rwandan culture and history in general, especially in Kigali, where we visit the memorial to the genocide, an art gallery, a local market, and other exciting locations.

ITENERARY

The tour begins at 8 am, then we head to Kigali genocide memorial the final rest for 250,000 victims of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis. At the memorial visitors can have a profound experience there that encourages peacemaking and reconciliation.

We make a second trip at an art gallery that features seventeen artists from throughout East Africa. There, we see how Rwandan and East African artists create their works of art, visit their workshop, and, if necessary, have a brief period of time to paint something.

Third stop: The Kimironko local market, the second-largest in the city, where farmers from outside Kigali villages come very early in the morning to sell the crops they grow so that retailers may sell it while it’s still fresh. A wide range of locally grown produce, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds, meat, poultry, fish, and shellfish may be found in the market. We may discover kitenge fabric for fashion and much more in the arts and crafts section.

.

Due to the coming lunch hour, we will be heading to one of Kigali’s finest restaurants where we may enjoy both native Rwandan cuisine and foreign cuisine. We visit Caplaki Craft Village after lunch, which has an amazing selection of handmade crafts and souvenirs in addition to artwork. You are free to shop until you drop.

Next visit is at Belgian peace keeper’s memorial where 10 Belgian UN soldiers were brutally murdered by Hutu extremists in order to compel the UN to withdraw its forces, which opened the door for the Rwandan genocide against the Tutsi to begin in its full scope.

Last visit of the day is at the old town Nyamirambo. This is the part of the city that never sleeps, it’s super packed and busy all hours of the day but it doesn’t make it unsafe. The painted walk way with artwork emphasizing discipline and Rwandan values of a decent individual is the most lively aspect.
