Rwanda is a country in central Africa whose geography is mainly dominated by mountains, hence the name 'a country of a thousand hills'. Despite the country having a lot of hills and mountains, Kigali city dwellers, remain left behind, when it comes to recreational hiking experiences. Thus far, people in need of hiking experience would have to make a trip in the north (volcano hike).
This package will offer participants an opportunity of experiencing at first hand a day to day lifestyle of Rwandans, including the use of public transportation, though one can opt for a private drive. A walk along Nyabarongo river where different agricultural activities can be seen, birds singing around will be a delight. A short walk thorough neighboring community and mount Kigali hike where tourist can choose one activity of their own choice, once at the top (zip lining, archery and bungee). A walk home through Nyamirambo neighborhood is recommended, but one may opt out, if tired.
This tour will be open to other participants and the maximum number for one group will be 10 individuals. Note that we can have more than one group a day, and only healthy individuals can join.
The tour starts near down town Taxi Park. It will be a once a day tour, and will start everyday at 7:00' AM in the morning.
