HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
The trip "Cycling Uganda & Rwanda: The Heart Of Africa" starts in Entebbe and ends in Kigali. This is a bicycle trip that takes 15 days taking you through Entebbe, Rushaga Gorilla Camp, Musanze, Fort Portal and 8 other destinations in Uganda and Rwanda. This is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A breathtaking labyrinth of trails weaves along mountain foothills, plunges into deep verdant valleys, edges the densest of jungle, and takes you from one one jaw-dropping landscape to the next. Welcome to the wild heart of East Africa.

The journey begins on the western edge of Uganda, at the base of Africa's tallest mountain range, The Rwenzoris, or the Mountains of the Moon. Magnificent craters and cloud-shrouded peaks surround you as you climb into the lush foothills and highlands. Encounter the famously polite and friendly locals of the many remote mountain villages, some excited to chat, some just shyly smile.

Along the way, experience incredible wildlife sightings and bask in otherworldly landscapes. An action-packed safari in Queen Elizabeth National Park, gorilla tracking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the tranquil shores of Lake Bunyonyi, the challenging climbs of the Congo Nile Trail. By the time the journey ends in Kigali, Rwanda, you won't believe all that you've experienced. Welcome to East Africa, we said!

Clare's review for another SpiceRoads tour
We loved Vietnam and getting to see the central coast up close and personal. The rides were awesome, food wonderful and the perfect blend of cultural experiences and stories by the local guides.
