Hilton Group Hotels has received a $5.5 million loan from the International Finance Corporation to open a business in Bujumbura, Burundi, as the battle for control of the EAC hotel market intensifies. According to IFC, the agreement is part of Hilton's expansion of its presence in the region as several global hotel chains seek to capitalize on the growing number of tourists in the region. The agreement was signed in late June, according to John D. D'Amico, Hilton Group's CEO, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hilton Africa.

Hilton Kigsali will also have a 20 hectare hotel complex on a 20 hectare site being developed by Opulent Hotel Group, which is developing a new hotel, restaurant, retail and office space on the same site.

In February 2011, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced that Hilton Hotels and Resorts had entered into a $1.5 million investment with the Rwandan Development Council (RDB) to build a hotel and office complex in Bingu, a city of about one million people in eastern Burumba, about 30 kilometers south of Bu Jumbara. The hotel is part of the $2.8 million BuJumbURA project, which includes two hotels, two restaurants and a retail space as well as an office area.
