Our Tea Immersion Tour in Rwanda takes you to Pfunda Tea Estate; the largest and most renowned tea estate companies in Rwanda. The estate is located below the Virunga Volcanoes and gets its fertile soil from the erupted soils of the volcanoes. This helps contribute to the high quality of tea produced from the estate. The Pfunda Tea Estate plantation stretches over hundreds of hectares and farmers can be seen planting, tending or harvesting tea leaves depending on the period of visitation. An enthusiastic traveler may also wish to participate in these activities. During the tour, you will learn about the history and process of tea production. You will also have the opportunity to sample different types of Rwandan tea. This experience is a great way to learn about the process of making ‘Crop to Cup’ and to admire the beauty of Rwanda’s countryside.


  • Explore the lush green fields where tea leaves are cultivated
  • Get hands-on experience in tea harvesting and making
  • Taste unique flavored and freshly made tea


Meet and greet your driver early in the morning. Afterwards, head to the North-western side of Rwanda, about 3-4 hours’ 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 the Congo Nile Trail. On arrival, meet local farmers and enjoy the 2-hour Tea tour experience with the local 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 about 10-15 minutes to Lake Kivu Serena Hotel or any other local restaurant for lunch. This trip can be easily combined with a scenic Boat Cruise on Lake Kivu and beachside experience. Late afternoon drive back to Kigali. Drop-off at your hotel or residence. END OF THE TOUR!
