Culinary hotspot

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.
