Up and coming City Centre - a massive opposite to the countryside dirt roads!!! Plush offices and clean roads and pavements. The centre of Kigali is flourishing, and our hope is this will spread further and further into the surrounding countryside.

The mix and mismatch of modern and crumbling/timeless makes this a mini-adventure. Safe to wander, meet people. Careful on the sidewalks and in traffic!
