CYCLING IN RWANDA
A mountainous, landlocked gem in the most fertile corner of Africa, Rwanda is a lush land of green sprawling hills and smoking volcanoes made famous by Gorillas in the Mist. It is a genuine cyclists' paradise, as our founder Oli Broom found out when he spent two years living an working in Kigali until 2013. Oli knows the country back-to-front, especially on two wheels. It is an epic, undiscovered place for a cycling adventure, full of friendly locals way off the tourist trail and, of course, the Virunga Mountains bordering Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo are home to some of the last mountain gorillas on the planet. Over the past few years we have worked with local friends and guides to create fantastic group & tailor-made adventures for riders of all abilities and fitness levels. Rwanda's stable government will see it attract more and more visitors from abroad over the coming decade, so now is very much the time to visit.
“Lush valleys, terraced hillsides, monster volcanoes. Thrilling
and beautiful with every pedal stroke. What a trip.”
John Heermans - November 2016
WHAT IS RWANDA LIKE?
Rwanda is one of the most beautiful countries in Africa. It is also one of the continent's most exciting adventure tourism destinations... but there is no-one there! Of course, for much of the post-colonial era the country faced relentless social and political upheaval, culminating in the 1994 genocide. But over the past two decades Africa’s most densely populated country has embarked on a remarkable journey, winning global acclaim for tackling ethnic divisions and dragging millions off the poverty line. Crime and corruption levels are some of the lowest on the continent. Rwanda is one of Africa's safest and cleanest countries and Kigali, its capital, one of the most liveable.
