Consulate General of the Republic of Rwanda in Australia

Can tourists walk around in Kigali safely?

Yes, they can. Rwanda is perhaps the most crime-free African country and Kigali is a very safe city. Although tourists should beware of pickpockets in busy markets and bus stations. In public places, tourists should keep a close eye on their possessions and avoid having valuable or large amounts of money loose in pockets or bags. It is strongly advised to keep all valuables and money in a hidden money belt.
