Meet with your Ikaze Rwanda Tours representative at your pickup location within Kigali or at the airport. Your tour will begin with a 20-minute drive to the starting point at the bottom of Mount Kigali. After a short briefing from your local guide, you will begin your hike!
Located at the southwestern edge of the city, Mount Kigali stands at over 1,500 metres above sea level and is one of Kigali's highest hills. The walk departs from the Nyamirambo area, and the narrow roads at the start of the hike are lined with charming small houses.
The hike is not strenuous, but be aware that any walking in Kigali involves walking up hills, so be prepared! The walk is a moderate 1-2 hour stroll up to a large area, leading to beautiful views of the city. If you are new to town and not used to the high elevation, be advised that you may find yourself fighting for breath.
Your fun afternoon will be capped with a horseback riding session before descending back either by driving or walking. As an option, a stroll through the old Muslim town of Nyamirambo after the hike is a great way to make it into a full afternoon outing. Your tour will end with a drop-off at your residence or the airport.
