Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Congo Nile Trail with additional information or photos.

The Congo Nile Trail runs on the western edge of Rwanda through small villages and large cities. The trail is well-marked and easy to navigate. Along the way you’ll pass through banana and coffee plants, meet locals selling snacks and drinks to keep you pedaling, and children who want to practice some English as you ride by.

Know Before You Go

If you need to rent a bike and/or are looking for guides, we had great success with Rwandan Adventures in south Gisenyi.
