Welcome to vibrant Kigali
Proud and progressive Kigali, in the centre of Rwanda, is buzzing with tech hubs and creative startups.
Connection to the
rest of the country
Whether you’re arriving by road or by air, look out for Kigali’s beautiful rolling hills and valleys. With just over one million inhabitants, the city reaches into the surrounding countryside, showing visitors why Rwanda is called the land of a thousand hills.
A bustling and colourful city centre is home to a strong sense of cultural pride and national respect: discover Kigali’s warm welcome for yourself. A clean and green city, keen-eyed visitors to Kigali will also notice pioneering design and architectural features that draw international attention.
With a thriving contemporary art scene, Kigali is building a reputation with art galleries and spaces like Ivuka, Inema, or Uburanga. Look out for new coworking spaces and entrepreneurship hubs - like Norrsken Kigali - designed to support the busy tech scene, driven by government investment in new technology events and development in the region.
Kigali’s rapid development has seen the creation of many new shopping malls, office buildings, and of course the acclaimed convention centre. The Kigali Cultural Village offers a dedicated space for local artisans and food vendors to exhibit and trade their goods.
