Kigali is the capital of the state of Rwanda on the African continent. The capital of Rwanda, a small country, has a population of around 1 million. Compared to other African capitals, it is a less traffic-free, orderly, clean, calm and developed city. In addition, Rwanda is characterized as the country with the lowest crime rate in Africa.
The city has a mild climate year-round, as the Equator line crosses in the central part of the country. The average temperature in the city, which has a tropical climate, is around 21 degrees throughout the year. From February to May there are heavy rains, so the city is full of open canals.
Kigali was established as a German colony in 1907. In 1922, under Belgian rule, the Assembly of Nations became a part of the Rwanda-Urundi region in the mandate system. Kigali became the capital of Rwanda in 1962 after both regions gained their independence. Unfortunately, Kigali is the starting place of the civil war between Hutu and Tutsi in Rwanda in 1994 and the resulting genocide against Tutsis. In this genocide that lasted 100 days, more than 1,000,000 people lost their lives in the country, and 100,000 of them are from Kigali.
One of the must-see places in Kigali is undoubtedly the Kigali Genocide Museum. This museum was opened in April 2004, on the 10th anniversary of the genocide that took place in 1994, one of the biggest massacres in history. Entry to the museum is free.
The museum basically consists of three parts. In the galleries on the ground floor, there are various photographs, informative audio boards and newspaper reports. In the second section, there are galleries with photographs of the deceased children and their families on the walls. It is quite impressive as bones and skulls are exhibited as well as photographs. In addition, recordings of genocide survivors describing what they went through are shown. In the third section of the museum, there are information boards on the genocides in the world. In the garden of the museum, besides the underground corpses, there is a cemetery where the bodies found later are buried and their names are on the walls. The museum is a must-visit place to understand and feel deeply about the genocide.
Ntarama and Nyamata Churches, which also witnessed the massacre, are two of the places frequented. There are body parts, clothes, skulls and bones of those who died in these churches where people tried to escape and hide during the genocide. There is a cemetery in memory of those who lost their lives in the garden of the Nyamata Church, where tens of thousands of people are buried.
Akagera National Park is located on the border with Tanzania and is spread over an area of approximately 1,200 km². It is a park that must be visited by those who want to see natural life and many kinds of animals and birds in their natural environment. The national park was established in 1934 to protect animals and wildlife. From baboons to deer in Akagera National Park; It is home to a variety of wild animals from giraffes, zebras, elephants to different bird species, gazelles and crocodiles, and about 500 species of birds.
Another must-see natural wonder is Nyungwe Rainforest National Park. Although it is a little far from the city, the area, which is described as the largest preserved forest in Africa, is home to many living things.
Again, Volcanoes National Park is the park where gorilla safari tours, which are common among tourists, are organized. If you come this far, it can be a nice experience to see Rwanda's famous mountain gorillas.
