This extensive and very active biking safari takes you to the amazing natural spectacles of Uganda, often described as the Pearl of Africa and The Land of the 1.000 Hills as Rwanda is also known. Here, you have the opportunity to discover natural wonders not found anywhere else on the planet: Island dotted Lake Mutanda with the Virunga Volcanoes as a backdrop and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park with the unforgettable opportunity of climbing volcanoes, tracking the endangered Golden Monkeys or visit the famous Mountain Gorillas. This is where you will be tracking gorillas in their natural territory in the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its expanse of ancient and undisturbed tropical forests and the Parc National des Volcans in Rwanda. Additionally, you will venture on Big Five game drives with the chance to observe the tree climbing lions of Ishasha in Queen Elizabeth National Park. Our fifteen-day bike tour from Kigali, Rwanda to Entebbe, Uganda takes you around 1.200 kilometres across these two countries. Of the 15 days, you spend 7 in the saddle covering some 300 km in total with an average of around 40 kilometres each day. At a distance of 3-5 kilometres from the cycling group, an escort vehicle is always close at hand should you need or wish to take a break. Our Made in Germany trekking bikes are never more than 2 years old but should you nonetheless encounter technical problems with your bike, our escort vehicle can bring a replacement bike of similar quality without delay. The help and assistance offered by our dedicated team is second to none and under these conditions, Rwanda and Uganda offer ideal destinations for cycling. Despite the fact that both countries are situated in Africa’s tropical, equatorial region, temperatures seldom exceed 30°C. And air humidity of max. 80% is, likewise, not too excessive. The reason behind these pleasant climatic conditions lies in the fact that 85% of Ugandan state territory is located at an altitude of over 1,000 metres above sea level. The predominantly rural communities in Rwanda and Uganda are connected by a network of agricultural tracks located far away from any major roads. In Rwanda serpentine trails lead through a breathtaking labyrinth of high mountains and deep valleys, secluded rivers and picturesque lakes. Uganda, on the other hand, is characterised by the rich diversity of produce that flourishes there (coffee, tea, bananas, pineapples, maize, sugarcane), the plantations of which are easy to access via maintained tracks. Our Trekking Bike Safari offers an enjoyable and memorable trip through two contrasting countries. And your stay in Uganda furthermore includes a gorilla tracking adventure, game safari and a variety of other optional activities which will require a change from bike to car for wildlife related safety reasons.
