once a small colonial outpost by Dr. Richard Kandt, the first German colonial resident of Rwanda. This house turned museum is the first modern building which marked in 1907 the Kigali City foundation. After the museum, your drive will take east on the way to the Presidential Palace Museum.
The museum is a short way east of the airport a short while passed the Kanombe Military Hospital. This former presidential palace is located on the eastern outskirts of the city and is worth visiting given its “secret” rooms with a very strange presidential nightclub.
The wreckage of the presidential plane where it fell down after being shot are still there – over the garden wall!

At the end of the tour, your driver will drop you off at the airport for your outbound flight back home or to your next destination.
