An active adventure holiday in Rwanda
Rwanda is a perfect for active travellers. Highlights include gorilla tracking in the Virunga mountains, chimp tracking in Nyungwe National Park, and canoeing on the Mukungwa River. There are also the steep day or overnight hikes to the volcanic Virunga peaks, most notably the 4,507m Mount Karisimbi and the 3,711m Mount Bisoke. A diverse selection of hiking trails traverses the densely forested slopes Nyungwe National Park. Then there’s the scenic 227km Congo-Nile Trail, which runs roughly parallel to the eastern shore of Lake Kivu, and takes ten days to complete on foot, five by bicycle, and two or three by 4x4.
