Kigali Skyline

In one episode of its “36 Hours In…” series, the New York Times describes Kigali as “a proud city, known for its progressive start-ups, energetic art scene and great dining and coffee.”

The almost mile-high capital of resurgent Rwanda sprawls over green hills, valleys, and ridges, is home to more than 80,000 people, and indeed, as the Times says, “pulses with African charm.” Micato guests happily sample the city’s charms, usually on the way to and from our visits to the mountain gorillas of the Parc National des Volcans, but we arrange longer stays enthusiastically. As Micato’s Executive Director Joy Phelan-Pinto says, “Kigali is a city on the move. It’s one of the safest (and cleanest) cities in the world,” in the centre of “a country even more incredible than we could have imagined—a peaceable kingdom indeed.”
