A weekend in Kigali

Trip description

Located at an altitude of 1,500 metres, surrounded by green hills and impeccably clean, Kigali is a pleasant city that you can discover with pleasure and curiosity. The capital, which is being modernized at full speed, is the showcase of a country in the midst of a renaissance. Neither confusing nor insecure, Kigali is one of the top 10 African cities where life is good...

Every Saturday afternoon from 4pm, Hash House Harriers (or H3) organizes hikes around the capital. The outing ends in the evening with a few beers and skewers in a restaurant in the city. A very friendly moment. In the morning visit the Inema Art Center, the contemporary art center of Kigali (you will find masks, jewellery, sculptures, paintings...).
