It has a number of coffee bars/cafes and a couple of shops selling touristy tat. I was in Business but the pricing was very competitive.
I then took the train from Livingstone to Cape Town so can't really comment on it as a departure point for the return journey.

I haven't done Kigali for a couple of years but last time I did, it was an absolute shambles and not one I would recommend for a family looking for a smooth transit.

I'd take NBO over options like JNB any day.
Good to know, thanks.
