Transportation to Kigali City Center from Airport

When you arrive at Kigali Airport you will see taxi drivers inviting passengers to their taxis at the terminal exit. Airport taxis are one of the most practical vehicles you can choose to travel to Kigali city center. If the cost of airport taxis is too high, if you exit the terminal and walk for a few minutes you can stop the other taxi services operating in the area. Kiagali International Airport which is 5 kilometers from Kigali city center does not have public transportation vehicles such as buses. Because of this, taxis are the first alternative to the center. Car rental is ideal for travellers planning to spend a few days in and around Kigali.


As soon as you step out of the terminal at Kigali International Airport, you will see taxi drivers inviting passengers to their taxis who want to take you to the city center. The journey to Kigali city center is short and comfortable way to travel but the cost of taxis may be a bit expensive. If you want to negotiate a little of the price you can try your luck, but if you are planning to spend more time in the city, you can rent a car from the terminal. You can find a vehicle to travel to Kigali city center by leaving the airport, but this option is not recommended for security reasons especially for those who are travelling to Kigali for the first time. 3 or 4 people that are travelling together can travel in the same taxi. 5 or more passengers travelling together can rent a vehicle suitable for more crowded groups and travel that way to Kigali city center.

Visitors travelling to the area for the first time can rent a car or speak with their hotel in advance to find a suitable service vehicle that will bring them to Kigali city center. The terminals at Kigali International Airport are very close to each other, so you can walk from one terminal to another. After renting a car it maybe a bit confusing at first, so be sure to get a map that shows the routes in the area in detail so that you can find your way around the Kigali roads more easily.

Motorcycle Taxi

At the exit of Kigali International Airport you can see motorcycle taxis that serve the area. Motorcycle taxis are cheaper than classic taxis but they are not very comfortable.
