“The best day-trip in Rwanda”

Go on a journey of discovery into the peaceful heart of the Rwandan countryside. Far from the roads you’ll be surrounded by the lush green hills for which Rwanda is so famous whilst you soak up impressive views, watch abundant birds in the bushes, look out for the otters, meet friendly communities and find just a little excitement on the water. Your qualified leaders will explain the places and sights, bringing the experience to life. Full equipment provided; no experience is needed.

Mountain biking in and around Kigali


 “Go and explore out of Kigali”

Escape from the convention centre and get a glimpse of rural Rwanda by cycling on quiet roads through the city to the outskirts.  The ride will take you through a quiet residential neighbourhood and the historical centre before heading downhill and out towards the rural suburbs. After leaving the city, you’ll ride on quiet mud roads alongside the Nyabarongo river, where you might catch a glimpse of a crocodile or hippo. 

There are a few hills, the last of which is “Rebero” which literally means ‘viewpoint’ which is a great place to take in Kigali before enjoying the ride downhill, back to your hotel or the convention centre.  Your guide will take time to explain the sights and the history of the city, while making sure that you’re riding the bike comfortably and drinking plenty of water.  

The tour can be completed on a hard-tail mountain bike or a high quality mountain e-bike (if your legs want a little help).  Bikes are provided with helmets, gloves and water bottles.  Snacks are included in the cost of the tour. 

Timing:

07:30 – 08:00  Kigali pickup from your hotel

08:30   Briefing and start of the biking trip

12:30   Enjoy a packed lunch in a shady and scenic spot

14:00   Return to Kigali, briefly stopping for a cold drink at a local café along the way

16:00 (approx.)           Arrive back at your hotel
