Things to do


Nyamirambo Women’s Centre

The seamstress­es of the Nyamirambo Women’s Centre in Kigali produce high-quality kitenge fabrics, provide a library for children and offer tours around the lively Muslim neighbourh­ood with visits to markets, a women’s hair salon, and other small businesses, such as special milk bars.

Kigali Genocide Memorial

The museum at this impressive memorial next to the largest mass grave in Rwanda painfully documents the divisive politics that led to the genocide of 1994. A depressing, but unmissable place of remembranc­e and learning.

Inema Art Centre

Fancy a giant gorilla fashioned out of motherboar­ds? At Inema, the home of Rwandan art, it’s yours to buy. Billed as one of East African’s major art galleries, it houses a collection of artists from around the African continent. Meet the artists and the rest of the scene on Thursday nights. inemaartce­
