Hotel des Mille Collines
Recommended, Lunch: The hotel was built in 1972, opened in 1974, and was renovated in 1987 as the leading hotel in Rwanda with large meeting facilities. It was the setting for "Hotel Rwanda", which was based on the story of the hotel's manager, Paul Rusesabagina. During the Rwandan genocide, Rusesabagina sheltered both Hutu and Tutsi refugees in the hotel.

Kigali Genocide Memorial & Museum
Located just outside of Kigali City Centre in the Gasabo district, Kigali Genocide Memorial & Museum was created by a joint partnership of the Kigali City Council and the UK-based Aegis Trust. The centre is an extremely moving, challenging, educational and ultimately inspiring as well as a great place to understand the cause, tragedy and successful rebuilding post-genocide.
The memorial hosts a tour which is transparent and educational but very sombre and humbling when guests realise that over 250,000 deceased are buried on the site of the memorial.
