Nyamirambo is a busting multi-cultural commercial district in Kigali. This unique experience brings you right into the heart of the colours, noises and smells of urban Rwanda. Guided by the charming women of the Nyamirambo Women’s Center (NWC), the tour allows visitors to experience the local market, West African tailors, hair salons, recording studios with local rap music and the Muslim quarter with its Arab influences. A delightful traditional Rwandan lunch in a home of one of your hosts is an optional extra.
