During the last two years, few new international hotels opened in Kigali. Park Inn by Radisson is one of them. Of course, people are generally more focusing on Radisson Blu linked to the Convention Center, but the little brother Park inn should not be ignored. With cheaper rate, it could be your next staycation option !

I love Airbnb. When we arrived in 2014, this service was almost unavailable. Since then , hopefully for me, the offer has increased. What I love with Airbnb is to have the comfort of a home and this feeling that you live there… Even if it is for 3 days only. With kids it is really great, you can follow their rythm, they have more place to play and can make more noise. With friends also ( for the exactly same reasons 🙂 ).
There is a lot of options for lunch in Kigali . Places where you can find indian, african, or asian food with most of the time buffet for the lunch. But if you are not in a buffet mood, i have something for you ! It is a small place but never crowded so you can just come by and order. The place is called Chap Chap, who means « quick ». It can also refer to the chapati that you can take there. There is actually two locations : one in Nyamirambo, the other one in Kicukiro. Food is the same at the two locations but my pictures has been done at Kicukiro.
La coopérative des femmes de Nyamirambo, aussi appelée Umutima, est une ONG rwandaise . L’atelier couture jouxte la boutique où ces femmes vendent différents objets en pagne ou en vannerie qu’elles ont fabriqués. Des vêtements, des accessoires, des paniers, mais aussi des sacs. Le kitenge est l’élément central de leurs créations, et comme il s’agit d’une petite production, vous pouvez considérer votre pièce comme unique. Cette boutique est le lieu idéal pour faire (ou se faire) des petits cadeaux.
