During this safari, you will be staying in various accommodations across Rwanda.

Inzu Lodge

For night one, you can have good sleep and prepare for you adventure the next day at Inzlu Lodge, Gisenyi.

The rooms are with double or twin beds, shelves, tables, and chairs.

Home Saint Jean

After a long, tiring day of cycling, you can retreat to your rooms at Home Saint Jean for the third night.

Kibogora Guesthouse

For the fifth night, accommodations will be available Kibogora Guesthouse.

Peace Guesthouse

Located in Kamembe, lodging will be available for you at Peace Guesthouse for the last night of your safari.

For this safari tour, do not expect a pleasant, rural single track. You will be sharing the road with motorcycle traffic and the occasional beer delivery trucks or minibus. There are a few long climbs. You will be ascending and descending between intervals of 1,450 and 1,800 meters. The entire trek can be completed in five days. However, cyclists can choose to take on only sections of the trail, hence, do not have to cycle the entire trail.

Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive in Kigali and transfer to Gisenyi to prep yourself for tomorrow's big day. Have plenty of rest at the lodge and enjoy your accommodation.

Day 2

For the second day, you will be cycling from Gisenyi to Kinunu, taking on a distance of 41 kilometers. The ride takes five to six hours.The second day features the steepest elevation climb.

Day 3

In 50 kilometers, you will cycle from Kinunu to Kibuye, taking about five to eight hours. Day three on the road to Kibuye has the most hills spread out. It is definitely the most taxing day.

Day 4

From Kibuye to Mugonero, the distance of 35 kilometers will take you about three to five hours. Day four to Mugonero is short but incorporates the highest climb of the trip to 1,887 meters.

Day 5

For day five, you will rapidly descend to 1,440 meters, Lake Kivu level and climb back up to 1,750 meters over 10 or more kilometers. You will take the path from Mugonero to Kibogora in 35 kilometers for about four to five hours.

Day 6

You will spend the five to six hours biking from Kibogora to Kamembe in 54 kilometers. Day six is easy. You are on a beautiful, new tarmac road and there are only minor rolling hills.

Day 7

Depart from Kamembe and catch on to your flight. This officially ends the safari.

This safari will start from Kigali, and the cycling tour will take place from Gisenyi, Kinunu, Kibuye, Mugonero, Kibogora to Kamembe in Rwanda. Rwanda is a flourishing country. It is small but bears the large title, “Land of a Thousand Hills.” Rwanda is home to the “virungas” or great old volcanoes that tower up to almost two miles and a half, and are nearly covered with rich, green rainforest.

Rwanda’s countryside is characterized by rolling grasslands and areas of rugged mountains that extend southeast from a chain of volcanoes. Dian Fossey described the mountains as being “in the heart of Central Africa, so high up that you shiver more then you sweat.”

    "Kip was an amazing tour leader on a trip my husband and I took with him to Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda. I have been lucky enough to go on some amazing adventures but this trip has been my favourite so far. There were so many highlights on this trip and everyday brought another wow experience including the game drives in the Masai Mara and trekking to see the gorillas in Rwanda. A holiday that will live with me forever."

    "I have done a fair bit of guided travelling and Kip was the best guide I have ever had. Very knowledgeable, very patient (I had a lot of questions!), well-organised, good at meeting the needs of a varied group of travellers and getting the balance right. I have no complaints at all - none. Definitely recommend!"

    "I travelled through Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda with Kip as my guide. I found him to be very knowledgable, professional and enthusiastic about all the countries he guides you through. I toured with a few companies through Africa and I honestly found him to be the best his enthusiasm is contagious he has a likeable quality to his personality- nothing is too much trouble! It certainly helps if you have a guide who is able to help with all things such as must see sites, safaris, even shopping and money exchange to make sure we " mzungu " don't get ripped off lol! It was a pleasure to tour with someone passionate about his Africa instead of just going to the motions. You will not be sorry if you choose Kip and Dream it do it!"

    "Travelled with Kip Langat through Kenya �. The bloke is an absolute legend. His knowledge of the areas we safaried was excellent and his sighting of animals was second to none. His love of his country shines through when explaining different areas you visit. Can't give the man enough praise. Him and his crew made our African safari could not ask for more."

    "If you are planning the trip of your dreams then this is the company to go with, I have been lucky enough to do a fair amount of travelling and my trip with Dream it Do it through Rwanda, Uganda and kenya is at the top of my list, simply amazing."

    "Very professional staff delivered everything I could have wanted and more, nothing was too much trouble, they are very passionate about ethical/environmentally friendly travel and we had plenty of genuine interaction with communities/locals along the way that never once felt like a tourist trap which you can get with other lesser companies. I also had every encounter and experience that I was hoping for, all of which far exceeded any expectations."

    "Honestly can't recommend them enough, if you want any more feedback please feel free to Facebook message me."

    "I haven't actually travelled with this company BUT, Kiptoo Peter Langat was our guide a couple of years ago and did a superb job! There wasn't much he didn't know about the wildlife etc and NOTHING was a problem to him. I am sure anyone travelling with this company will have a great time!!"
