Full description
Start off your day by being picked up from either your hotel in Kigali or meeting at a designated point. Get to know your local guide with a short introduction and then drive off in a customized 4x4 land cruiser or safari van to kickstart your city tour of Rwanda's capital. Learn about the history of Kigali from your guide on your way to each stop. Watch the city's lush green hills flash by you.  Tour Juru Park and ascend to one of the highest points in Kigali. Take in a panoramic view of the city and surrounding countryside.  Visit the Kigali Museum and learn about local and national history from both pre-colonial and colonial periods. You will have the chance to visit the Kandt House Natural History Museum and Rwanda Art Museum. You will also see the Camp Kigali Memorial and the Kigali Genocide Memorial site, a somber reminder of the massacre in 1994. Learn more about Rwanda’s history from pre-colonial times up until the 1990s and how Rwanda has dealt with its past.  Continue the tour and see the new developments in Kigali and where its new hubs are thriving. Experience the aromas of Kimoronko Giant Market and the colorful handmade arts and crafts market at Caplaki Craft Village. Finish your full day of sightseeing in Kigali with drop-off back at your hotel or at the original starting point.
