We explore Rwanda in a clockwise direction visiting the genocide museum, the town of Nyanza - home to the well-known Inyambo Cows. Our two day stay at Nuyngwe National Park we will do the canopy walk and do Chimpanzee Trekking. Next up is Lake Kivu and then the highlight of our tour - silverback mountaing gorilla trekking in the Volcanoes National Park.

On arrival, your rental motorcycle will be waiting for you in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.

The Rwanda tour is mostly on good tar roads, with a few short 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 through beautiful winding passes.

Like all our other tours, our Rwanda tour is designed for small groups of between 5 and 7 bikes, to allow for a more personal experience. This tour will have a backup vehicle and your partner/companion can join in the vehicle if he/she wishes. This will allow a non rider to also enjoy and experience this special country with you.Please enquire about space availability and price.
