Join us on an unforgettable motorcycle tour to Rwanda and Uganda. The tour will start and end in Kigali, Rwanda. We explore Rwanda in an anti-clockwise direction visiting the genocide museum, the town of Nyanza - home to the well-known Inyambo Cows and Lake Kivu. From Lake Kivu we will be riding into Uganda for a lifechanging Gorilla Trekking experience and then touring on through Uganda in a clock-wise direction, visiting Queen Elizabeth National Park, Lake Albert, Murchison Falls and Jinja the source of the Nile.

We transport your motorcycle (owned or rented from us) from Cape Town South Africa to Kigali Rwanda saving you weeks of travelling time and having to pass through 16 border posts from and to South Africa.

With a good mixture of tar and gravel roads you can be assured of a real Africa adventure. Sound intermediate riding skills are required, and pillions are welcome, as long as they are comfortable riding with you off-road and longer distances.

If preferred, it can also be arranged for your loved one to join us only for the Gorilla Trekking section of the expeditions by means of a fly-in and fly-out package. Please contact us for pricing in this regard.

Like all our other tours, the Rwanda expedition are based on small groups, between 5 and 7 bikes, to allow for a more personal expedition experience.

Motorcycle rental can be arranged at an additional cost. We have a fleet of BMW F800GS and R1200GS LC available.

If you want to join our Rwanda/Uganda expedition from another country, let us know and we will provide you with a customised quotation.
