Biking the Congo Nile Trail can be completed in 5 days, with rich views and immersive cultural experiences along the way. This trail appeals to adventure travelers and is a great way to experience Rwanda. The trail can also be split up if visitors do not have the time to commit to the 5 day journey. However, it is an experience worth selling to those who crave an off the beaten path adventure.

It may seem at first like there are a lot of options when it comes to exploring the trail, but there’s no wrong way to do it. With 227km of magnificent forests, plantations, villages, and vistas over the lake, it doesn’t matter if you’ve got 1 day or 10, you’re sure to come away smiling. Given the safety of the region and the warm welcome offered in all the villages along the way, self-guided backpackers can hike the trail end to end with a few supplies, a bit of confidence and a good map, or more luxurious travellers can set up a fully guided experience complete with porters, cooks, and an English-speaking guide. Any of the RDB offices can put you in touch with a recommended tour agency to set up your fully customizable trip, or simply give you advice on the latest trail conditions and which bit of trail would best fit your budget, time, and interests.
