Africa scenery

Your base in Africa

RwandAir - Kigali, Rwanda

Spanning several ridges and valleys, Kigali, with its lush hillsides and bustling streets, is arguably one of the most attractive capital cities in Africa, as well as easily one of the cleanest and safest. The climate is mild with lots of sunny weather and an average temperature of 26 degrees celsius year round.  

The vibrant city is the economic, cultural and political hub of Rwanda, with a mix of cultural influences including Belgian and Middle Eastern. It offers a pleasant environment for pilots wishing to live here independently or with their family with its welcoming culture, a buzzing nightlife, an established expatriate community and excellent international schools.

Kigali’s central location makes it a great base for exploring greater Rwanda, as well as in its neighbouring countries of Uganda, Tanzania.
