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 Silverback Mountain 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.

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.

Like all our other tours, the Rwanda/Uganda tour is designed for small groups of between 5 and 7 bikes, to allow for a more personal experience.
