Renting mountainbikes in Kigali

We rented two mountainbikes to make a self-guided trip around Kigali. It was very nice thanks to the good quality of the bikes and the flexibility of Rwandan Adventures!

These guys are good, reliable and flexible. A good mix! We've used them a couple of times and always enjoyed it. They are not given away but i feel they deliver so it's definitely worth it! The guides are chatty and knowledgeable. A couple of points of advice with all guided routes in rwanda: 1 - double check the itinerary... More

Hired a mountain bike in Kigali from RA and used it for a self-guided morning trip around the hills and villages south of Kigali. It was excellent, nice bike with no problems. They provided a GPX map of the route which was easy to follow. I think RA are the only source of a MTB to hire in Kigali. I... More

Wonderful weekend and as other reviewers have mentioned a great opportunity to see real Rwanda. It was extremely well organised from start to finish. Marcel was a superb guide and the scenery like all of Rwanda was amazing. Thanks, Rwandan Adventures *****

Did the two day Twin Lakes biking trip with Rwandan Adventures a few weekends ago and loved it! It was such a fun, beautiful and interesting few days. The best way to see Rwanda and its gorgeous scenery and people and a great workout too! Would definitely recommend the trip for anyone wanting to see Rwanda by bike.

My friends and I completed the 3 day bike trip from Gisenyi to Kibuye in August this year. We had two 'porters' (Marcel and Bosko) who carried our belongings in 4 panniers each. Looking back the trip was absolutely fantastic - at the time I thought that I was going to die! This was partly to do with the heat,... More

We had spent two days gorilla trekking and had one further full day in the area. We wanted an experience that, while different, would be as rewarding. I had read (and seen some beautiful photographs) of the nearby Twin Lakes and set about trying to organize a day mountain biking around them. Although this was not a standard itinerary offered...
