When it comes to investing in real estate in Rwanda, Kigali is arguably the best place to do so. There are a number of reasons for this, chiefly because it’s Rwanda’s capital city, rapidly developing and a great quality of life.
Having said this, Kigali is a big city so the question still remains, where are the top neighborhoods to buy?

It’s a residential area where you can build a mansion with high walls or apartments. The neighborhood also nears the airport road giving easy access to the city’s airport
House demand in this area is usually among the highest that you can find, but the houses are also among the nicest.
Gacuriro is another venue where there’s a high concentration of wealthy people and upper middle class in Kigali. The main roads are paved and, but the inner roads are still dirt roads. The plots prices are high but not same like Nyarutarama due to a large number of coming buildings.

The neighbor of Kimironko in Gasabo District, Kibagabaga is also the area that leads to Gacuriro.

Ruyenzi is another excellent place to own plots. Being further out from the city center, land in Ruyenzi in Kamonyi district can be considered very cheap. So investors with less capital would do well to look at Ruyenzi when it comes to investing especially for residential houses.
