We arranged a two-day cycle ride with Rwandan Adventures who hired us bicycles for the trip. This trip is usually led by a chaperone who knows the route. Doing it without a chaperone meant a lot of preparation and planning in advance and to do it in this way is not for the faint hearted. There is no signposting and... More

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful 2-day trip from Gisenyi to Kibuye with porter Marcel. The bikes were in a good condition and our porter very friendly and helpful. The trip was one of the best experiences we had during our 2 week trip in Rwanda and Uganda, almost beating the gorilla tracking! We decided to cycle on day... More

Did the 3 day cycling tour from Rubona to Karongi. Wonderful experience riding through beatiful landscapes, highly recommended. Very professional organisation, which provides good material and good service (eg. also organised main luggage transfer). Recommended to do the tour with chaperone or guide unless you have tools and skills to repair bikes (not only tyres) on the way (even good... More

We rode with porteur Marcel from Gisenyi to Kinunu washing station, where we stayed for the night. It was a beautiful bike ride (with excellent bikes!), and Marcel was a great guide! And Diane in the office in Rubavu was a great help to us for planning our trip, but also some other things we wanted to do in Rwanda.... More

I hired a good quality mountain bike, helmet, gloves and repair kit from Rwandan Adventures and went on a route recommended by them which took me south from Kigali down to the Nyaborongo river. It was an excellent day, the locals were very friendly and the landscape was stunning. It was great to be able to get out of Kigali... More

We took this trail on foot with Isaac, the guide from Rwandan Adventures. He was very helpful the whole trip and also excellent in providing information. We appreciate very much his interpretation when being among locals and among others his open mind. He has very interesting opinions and we spent hours on discussing different topics. The trip was very well... More

Jo, Emmy and the rest of the RA team catered to all our needs! We wanted to bike from Kibuye to Gisenyi but only got 75% through. It's a tough ride but the views are spectacular

Rwandan Adventures was really great in helping us organize our bike tour from Gisenyi to Kibuye. They booked rooms, gave maps, gave advice, responded quickly--very useful and nice, and even advised friends of ours hiking instead of biking. The standard bikes are heavy but sturdy and had no problems. Only had a couple of issues (why not 5 star, otherwise... More
