Life in the bustling & diverse commercial suburb of Kigali

This is Africa

Nyamirambo is a bustling multi-cultural commercial suburb of Kigali that offers visitors a typical African flair. Comparable with South Africa’s ‘Township Tours’, our unique ‘This Is Africa’ experience brings you right into the heart of the colors, noises and smells of Africa.

Among others, you will experience the Muslim quarter with its Arab influences, the market, the West African tailors, the hair salons, the recording studio with its local rap music, the butcher, the health center and the primary school. Your hosts will also invite you to one of their homes where you will learn how to cook a Rwandan meal, and share lunch over intriguing conversations.

A fixed percentage of the benefits go to a Community Development Fund which is jointly managed by the Tourism Cooperative and NDA. By the end of the year, the people of Humure and Ramiro can decide in a democratic way how to best use this money, with NDA and the Tourism Cooperative keeping a veto right.

Visitors are further encouraged to buy locally made products. Benefits of these sales also accrue to the Community Development Fund. Book or inquire to find out more about This is Africa Tour
