Kigali the cleanest, safest, fastest and most liveable city in Africa
In the last couple of weeks, several reports came out ranking Kigali and Rwanda on top that I would like to share with you, particularly for those of you for whom Rwanda is still associated with the genocide memory.
In an Africa.com blog posting, Kigali is ranked tenth most liveable city in Africa in a ranking headed as expected by Cape Town. A good city development master plan and road constructions have made Kigali a well organized city with very little traffic congestion, especially compared to its neighboring capitals like Nairobi, Kampala or Dar es Salaam where I spent hours in traffic jams with the taxi sometimes barely moving more than 1 km in one hour. In addition to 4-5 stars hotel like the Serena Hotel or the upcoming new Marriott hotel, Kigali also offers nice boutique hotels like the Inside Africa ranked in the best boutique hotels in Africa.
I hope you enjoy this posting and that someday I'll meet you in Kigali the safest, cleanest, fastest and more liveable city in Africa.
