About Us

Living In Kigali was started by Kirsty Henderson in 2011, as a personal blog to record her time in the city and help new arrivals get settled. Since then, it’s become the #1 resource for people moving to, and living in, Rwanda. Combined with a thriving Facebook community, Living in Kigali helps thousands of people every month, providing local knowledge and expertise on everything from renting houses to fining obscure groceries. Now, after a decade of creating value and helping people, Living in Kigali is growing, creating fresh content to meet the ever-growing demand in one of Africa’s fast-growing and most exciting cities. We’re working with Rwandan content creators and local businesses to bring new ideas and connect Kigali’s residents with the best of everything the city has to offer.

In March of 2023, Ola Morin-Muhammed acquired Living In Kigali and made it an official business service for expats, newcomers, digital nomads, and curious minds interested in all Kigali offers.
