Gorillas and crocodiles

A safari through Akagera National Park is also a fantastic experience. Here you’ll find golden savannas, rolling grasslands and zebras, hippos and crocodiles.

The vibrant city of Kigali has hills, blossoming trees, an exuberant atmosphere, and is unmissable. Visit the multicultural Muslim quarter where the narrow streets invite you to go for a stroll. You’ll find the most beautiful African fabrics and woven baskets in the covered Kimironko market. For woodcarving, handmade drums and ceramics, try Caplaki Craft Village. The capital city of Rwanda is a melting pot of cultures for you to taste. Want to try a Rwandan speciality? Brochette frites – meat on a skewer with French fries – is something you can’t turn down. And in the charming district of Kimihurura, you can enjoy sushi and Italian specialities.

ARTS & CULTURE
No event has had a greater impact on the history of Rwanda than the 1994 civil war. In a 100-day period and under the watchful eye of a UN peacekeeping force, Hutus systematically murdered more than one million Tutsis. The genocide memorial centre in Kigali is a monument to one of the bloodiest genocides in world history.
Rwanda is not particularly known as a safari destination. Buffaloes, leopards and elephants can all be seen here, but rhinos and lions are no longer in the area (although a reintroduction of these species is in the works). Because the Big Five are not found here, many safari goers don’t take the Akagera National Park very seriously. Unjustifiably so though as it boasts an unparalleled wildlife reserve.
