Top Descriptions

To really get an understanding of the recent history of this small, landlocked and truly beautiful and welcoming country, you’ll have to visit this memorial in the centre of the capital city.

Top Tips

This is a good place to start if you’ve just landed in Rwanda and are still trying to get your head around the atrocities of 1994.
Don’t expect too much here, though the small grounds (where 250,000 people were buried) are certainly peacefull and well tended.
You are strongly encouraged to leave a donation or buy a souvenir, but whether you choose to or not is entirely up to you.
