Kigali city: If you are interested in a city tour through one of the Africa’s beautiful cities rich with cultural fraternities, then you should not think about any other city other than Kigali. Being the largest city in the country, it is where most government’s offices and president’s ministries are. Though a little bit busy, the roads in this city are well designed to minimize traffic jam which slows down movement of visitors. Security in the city is tight both during day and night and this is why many tourists feel more comfortable in Kigali than any other city in Africa. Kigali is also known as the cleanest city in East Africa and the old fashioned buildings designed by the ancient architectures are interesting to look at.

Mount Kigali: The main reason why Rwanda is referred to as “a land of a thousand hills” is because of the numerous hills that dominate most of its areas. One of the splendid hills a visitor can tour while on a safari is Mount Kigali. This hill is one of the tallest hills in the country on which a visitor can stand and have a clearer view of the city. Biking on this hill is an interesting activity that most visitors enjoy. While in this area, a visitor can hike to the top of the hill on foot.
