Kigali - Rwanda's capital and the city of eternal spring. Kigali is small and in a European clean city, there is not a bad choice of hotels, bars, restaurants and nightclubs. The city is located in the hills and is quite picturesque scene.

In terms of interest, in my opinion, not much interested in Kigali. First of all, the city can serve as a starting point to visit the national parks of Rwanda, where the country's three (Volcanoes National Park, Nyungve, Akagera)

Kigali Landmarks

Genocide Museum (Kigali Genicide Memorial Center)
The museum is located in the building of the former Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana.

Kigali prices for hotels, transport and entertainment

Kigali hotels and accommodation

Housing prices in Kigali strongly inflated, the cost of space in the hostel room for 8 people around $ 20, and the hotel rooms cost about $ 150. So that would be expensive and does not find suitable accommodation in Kigali should try. The most optimal, I managed to find this Discover Rwanda Youth Hostel (Boulevard de l Umuganda 7251 Kigali +250782265679) for 25 euros a double room. This is an option I found on the website of bourgeois. Not bad a guest house, the only staff member at check-Gest, or wrong whether we wanted to cheat and took more money for accommodation. But when we returned all counted without controversy. In general, this can be a guest to recommend.

Kigali sex tourism and nightlife

As has been described above in Kigali is not a bad choice of nightclubs, but probably the most appropriate place on the level of the institution and to explore with the girls, you can call the club Planet (aka KBC on the name of the building - Kigali Business Center). The club has three rooms: the main one where the dance floor, a DJ playing and there is a bar and there are a few sofas, entrance hall with billiards and another room with a dance floor, where basically the disco sounds. The optimal days for visiting this weekend, this time, comes the most girls. The average price of $ 25-30 girls. Login KBC - RWF 1000 (Thursday) 2000 RWF (Friday, Saturday) $ 1 is equal to about 650 RWF.

Kigali transport

Taxi
Taxis can be booked in Kigali at the reception in a hotel or a private trader to stop on the road. Taxis are the most expensive form of transport in Kigali. Keep in mind that the drivers saw the white, inflate the price. We are for a city tour and visit to the village, which is located about 10 km. from Kigali to pay about $ 50.
Motorcycle taxi
Motorcycle taxi is very convenient and inexpensive mode of transport to move around the city, but only one person is placed. But at the same time, for a few dollars you can drive almost half of Kigali. motorcycle taxi drivers wearing green vests and helmets, as helmet offers passengers during landing.
Minibuses
In Kigali, shuttle bus, the price is still less than a motorcycle taxi. Destinations are marked on the windshield. Just go and taxis between settlements in Rwanda.

Kigali safety

Kigali, Rwanda's capital, is considered one of the safest cities in Africa. At the same time, basic safeguards nor canceled. Cases of theft, even a local warn careful when shooting from the windows of taxis and minibuses can grab.

I'm with a friend, Mikhail, in Rwanda, stayed only three days. National Parks, we did not examine, as we had a five-day safari in Kenya, and the Kenyan parks are superior for Rwandan wildlife. Gorillas, we also did not watch as the price for them in Rwanda, as many as 750 $ for a permit, but not that we fans gorillas, that would have to pay for them is not small money at all.
That's why we decided to focus our attention on the country's capital, Kigali, the capital is all the same in many ways the face of the country. And also to visit the Rwandan countryside, that is, would like to see the two sides of life in Rwanda, the capital and peripheral. As I wrote above, we have identified all three days. The first day of arrival, check-in and rest in the second we visited the city and visited the village, and only the third day of the night we flew to Zanzibar.
