Kigali City - Rwanda

We are excited to bring CIRHT-Kigali 2022 to Kigali City from 5-7 October 2022. It is near the nation’s geographic centre in a region of rolling hills, with a series of valleys and ridges joined by steep slopes. The city has been Rwanda’s economic, cultural, and transport hub since it became the capital following independence from Belgian rule in 1962.

The city of Kigali is one of the five provinces of Rwanda, with boundaries set in 2006. It is divided into three districts—Gasabo, Kicukiro, and Nyarugenge—which historically had control of significant areas of local governance. CIRHT-Kigali 2022 will take place at Serena Hotel Auditorium/Ballroom. Serena hotel is situated in Central Kigali, the ambassadorial and commercial heart of Rwanda, and the city’s pre-eminent meeting place for diplomats and businessmen. Relaxed yet elegant, the hotel features an executive lounge and Bar and one of the city’s most popular venues, the Milimani Restaurant styled to offer a classically elegant interior and a light filled atrium overlooking the verdant tropical gardens.

Commonly known as the capital point of the city, Biryogo is known for the variety of cultures and foods.


It was only around 6:00 PM on a Monday evening and the colorful car free zone in Nyarugenge district’s Biryogo suburb was already ‘on fire’. As I stroll between vases that separate the main road from the beautiful zone painted in green, blue, white and grey, the environment was already vibrant. In open air, people were seated at communal tables in front of tea bars and restaurants in the middle of the road, laughing out loud, while others were walking through like they had a busy day… Read more

Rwanda Cricket Stadium, also known as Kicukiro Oval, is a cricket ground in Kigali, Rwanda. The stadium is officially titled the Gahanga International Cricket Stadium.

The trace of a bouncing cricket ball or the form of the surrounding Rwandan hills – that’s how Light Earth Designs (LED) conceived its latest building, a new cricket pavilion for the Rwanda Cricket Stadium Foundation and the first and only international standard cricket ground in the country. It’s a neat metaphor for the building, which drops in height from 15m to 12m to 8m as it tumbles down its sloping site.
