    This morning, depart on an excursion to a multicultural commercial suburb of Kigali. See the real everyday life of Kigali Rwandans as you explore, and take in the sights and sounds that the local people experience on a daily basis. This morning adventure includes a local lunch.

    After lunch, you will visit Question Coffee. Question's coffee farmers are all from Rwanda, so they are able to take care to make sure that the coffee they are using is sustainable, as well as high quality. They work with farmers to train them on sustainability practices, as well as improving their livelihoods.

    You will then move on to dinner at Republica Restaurant in Kigali, an intimate, high quality African dining experience.
