    The Kigali memorial is a serene reminder to the tragic recent history of Rwanda. The grounds are very sizable with many victims buried there. It includes also a huge amfitheater, an eternal flame monument, and inevitably a gift shop and café. Not to be missed when in Kigali.

    Thanks to the knowledgeable guidance of Iriza Tours' Esther and Ngabire, we discovered this hidden gem. From the moment we stepped inside, we were captivated by the diverse array of artworks on display. The ambiance was inviting, allowing us to immerse ourselves fully in the beauty of each piece. Impressed by the talent showcased, we couldn't resist purchasing two stunning art prints to adorn our walls back home. Inema Art Gallery is a true testament to Rwanda's vibrant art scene, and we are grateful for the opportunity to have explored it with such wonderful guides. A must-visit for art enthusiasts seeking inspiration and creativity!"

    From savoring mouthwatering chapati, tangawizi tea, to the flavorful Jollof rice at Macoco, every bite was a treat. The standout was the exceptional service, especially from Christopher, who went above and beyond to ensure our dining experience was memorable. Don't miss out on Macoco for an authentic taste of local cuisine!"

    I spent a lovely relaxed time at Ivuka Arts Center...now to be renamed NP ARTS CENTER. Some nice paintings here and I fell in love with one of them and bought!! Back home and one week later, the painting arrived in perfect condition via FedEx that NP arranged etc. Well worth a visit.

    The modern convention center is part of a complex including the Radisson Blu hotel and IT office space. The ensemble is set in a wonderful garden like space and is well fenced and guarded. There is ample parking space for cars and buses.

    Completed in 2016 the complex is huge by Rwandan standards. Seating capacity of the conference hall is 2,600. The 6-floor hotel has just under 300 rooms.

    Located 7 km east of the central business district.

    Went to visit this place as this was the start of the genocide. After the plane crash the belguims tried hard to stop the fighting, but they were stuck here and fell to an untimely death at this place,
    And everything at this place is about the Belgiums and how they succumbed, which was really sad and upsetting.
    Go take a peak

    An on the mark experience! A group of six of us enjoyed a fabulous meal while we fully explored our visual senses of the amazing art on display. We were met and offered a personalized tour by owner, world renowned artist Emmanuel Nkuranga. Wow! Highly recommend.
