    A great 2-3 hour hike around Mount Kigali which takes you off the beaten track, through hillsides and villages and past Fazenda Sengha - a perfectly timed rest stop after a fairly steep climb. There was one small shop/k...

    From Cyimbiri to Kinunu We started the day by taking a nice shortcut. There is a small path that follows the shoreline that starts right outside the guesthouse. It’s easy to find and follow without any instructions. Als...

    that is very nice and refreshing hike 3h up, 2.5h down gaiters needed and a lot of water also rain coats in case

    A path that reaches Ngezi lake, with nice views on the forest and Bisoke volcano. The vegetation is very dense and some plants can sting. All in all, not the best path in the Volcanoes park, for sure.

    We finished the trail on the highway leading to Kibuye and then flagged down a moto-taxi to take us into town. We forgot to stop tracking so the trail records our moto ride as well :)
