Visit Kigali, Rwanda
Rwanda's capital, Kigali, straggles over several hills, with the city centre on one and the government/administrative quarter on another.
The centre of Kigali is bustling, colourful, noisy but clean and safe. Its occupants, from smart-suited business people to scruffy kids, go about their activities, only lessening their tempo briefly in the middle of the day.
Peaceful tree-lined residential streets stretch outwards and generally downwards from the city's heart, and give visitors ample scope for strolling.
Hotels in Kigali
There aren't many tourist attractions in Kigali itself and you're unlikely to want to spend many full days there, but there are some good hotels, where the services are plentiful and the ambience is pleasant.
It is a good base from which to explore the rest of Rwanda, all parts of which are easily accessible by road in less than a day.
