With a wide range of local, regional and international titles, Ikirezi is without a doubt the best bookstore in Rwanda. You can also pick up some great hand made cards and souvenirs. Well worth visiting when in Kigali.

Ikirezi has an outstanding selection of books in English, Kinyarwanda, and French. I was able to locate some hard-to-find novels written by Rwandans about the Rwandan Genocide of 1994. There is also a wide selection of stationery.

Visiting Ikirezi bookstore is one of my favourite activities in Kigali. The bookshop offers a wonderful selection of books about Rwanda in specific and Africa and other countries in general. When done with shopping, a visit to Ikirezi's roof terrace is highly recommended!
