It is no wonder then that some African cities annually receive millions of tourists who trope in to take in the sights and lose themselves in the cities unique attractions.
Africans are no different and they too are insanely proud of their cities and won’t miss a chance to brag how great their city is compared to the next capital city in the neighbouring country.
Kenya’s Nairobi and Rwanda’s Kigali are two perfect examples of two fast-rising African cities which continue to hog the media limelight as they compete to outshine each other.
Kigali, a thriving African city is famous for its cleanliness, orderliness, and hospitality while Nairobi boasts as being the only city in the world situated next to a national park, the famous Nairobi National park.
