Plan your journey



Rwanda is known as Le Pays des Mille Collines (Land of a Thousand Hills) thanks to the endless mountains in this scenically stunning country. With a population topping 1 million, the capital Kigali spreads out over several hills and valleys, with many of the better restaurants and hotels at a distance from the traditional downtown area. Kigali is very popular with long term expats, and the city is teeming with westerners as it is a clean, comfortable and orderly city.
