The mercury is eager to shoot beyond 30°C as the summer arrives in Kigali. It is perhaps a better idea to come to the city in the months between March and May, or in the months of September and October. During the months mentioned above, the temperature remains moderate and pleasant. There are rainy days during these months but they are quite refreshing and settle the dust in the air, making the mornings even more spectacular.
The cheapest time to visit Kigali is in the month of November. Most tourists coming to the city plan their vacations earlier in the year, in March and in June. The traffic of sun-seeking tourists dwindles down as the winter approaches. Kigali also remains off the grid as most other travellers plan to head for their homes for the holidays in November. Prove these conforming travellers wrong and come to Kigali in the winter. Sure, the sun is not as warm but it is never freezing in the city.
Kigali international airport (KGL) serves the city of Kigali and is a gateway to the rest of Rwanda. The airport is only 5 kilometres away from Kigali Business Centre which measures to be just a 10-minute drive. The airport handled about 700,000 passengers in 2017. Rwanda is a landlocked country which makes Kigali airport an important part of the country’s infrastructure.
A British citizen needs to apply for a visa to visit Rwanda. The thirty-day tourist visa is for just £20 and can be paid in US dollars or Rwandan Francs.

Rwanda has had a long history and remains of human settlements have been discovered to exist since 3000 BC. In recent years, Rwanda has seen a peace that has made the turbulent past of the country a distant memory. Still, the Rwandan people educate their young and the travellers to their land the value of peace and human life.

The minibus would be able to drop you at the nearest food street or take you to a new city and it would only charge a few hundred Francs. Apart from the minibus, there are the motos or motorcycle taxis. The motos would be able to take you on a wild ride from the airport to your hotel and from your hotel to the rest of Kigali.
