4 Days Biking the Congo Nile Trail

4 Days Biking the Congo Nile Trail (Tour Overview)

This 4 Days Congo Nile Trail will allow tourists to experience the beautiful not-so-much treasures of Rwanda, The Land of a Thousand Hills.  This safari lets you discover the wonders of Rwanda uniquely from the primates and wildlife tours commonly preferred. This is a real adventure along the Nile trail you won’t afford to miss.

KIGALI – GISENYI (4 Days Biking the Congo Nile Trail)

Meet and greet your driver early morning. Afterwards, head to the North-western side of Rwanda, about 3-4hours drive from Kigali. A number of selected en route stops will be made for you to admire the natural beauty of Rwanda’s hilly landscapes. Rwanda is one of the best tea growers worldwide. Charming tea estates can widely be spotted when you travel; among others, along the Kivu Belt Road and Congo Nile Trail. On arrival, meet local farmers and enjoy the 2-hour Tea tour experience with Pfunda Tea Cooperative, going through the whole process of tea making, all the way from tea leaves picking to having a cup of hot drinking tea! After this splendid experience, drive 10-15minutes to the city for lunch and later head to your hotel for check-in and overnight at Paradis Malahide hotel.
