As Rwanda’s capital and its geographical heart, Kigali is an important business center and port. Spread across four hills, the city retains a garden feel, with a satisfyingly organic shape dictated by the verdant slopes over which it sprawls. The compact, low-rise center surrounds a busy, colorful market, and is studded with souvenir stalls displaying a wide range of local crafts. The Muslim quarter is well worth a visit, and you can explore the network of leafy avenues that wind into the surrounding residential suburbs.
