Bugesera comprises areas south of Kigali, which were formerly in the Kigali Ngali province, around the town of Nyamata. The area is prone to droughts, and has been earmarked as the location for a possible new international airport to serve Kigali, 40 km away, and the rest of the nation, replacing Kigali International Airport.
The area has a higher average daytime temperature than the Rwandan average, and lower precipitation, which sometimes lead to droughts.
