Guide to Walking and Mountain Hiking Tours in Rwanda with Deks Safaris

Rwanda is a walking & Mountain Hiking Tours safari paradise offering fantastic walking trails for all levels of experience, from beginners who prefer easy hikes to experienced hikers looking for a physical challenge and sweeping views with some of the highest peaks in the country. Deks Safaris organizes walks and hikes in two of the country’s best-protected areas: Volcanoes National Park and Nyungwe Forest National Park.

Walking & Mountain Hiking Tours in Rwanda to Trek the Mountain Gorillas

Volcanoes National Park is primarily known for mountain gorilla trekking in Rwanda, but the various Mountain Hiking Tours & walking trails in the park provide additional information about other species of flora and fauna. Most guests can enjoy the Dian Fossey Tomb Shrine Walking Safaris in Rwanda, a one to two-hour hike to the site of their residential and research camp.

The Journey takes you into the heart and mind of the woman best known for her extensive study and passionate protection of mountain gorillas, beginning in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and tragically ending with her death in Rwanda. We are touched by the response from guests seeing firsthand where Ms. Fossey has spent her days and nights and where she rests alongside many gorillas killed by poachers including Digit, her most prized mountain gorilla.

Mountain Hiking Tours and Walking Safaris to Rwanda

Following in his footsteps in the mountain forests of Rwanda will surely be a special part of your exploration of the country. For intermediate hikers looking to visit Volcanoes National Park, we recommend a hike to the peaks of Mount Karisimbi and Mount Bisoke.

Mount Karisimbi is a dream come true for those seeking a botanical travel experience and who want to see many of Africa’s most exotic plant species. The mountain is part of the Virungas volcanic chain and has several distinct zones, varying slightly from dry western slopes to wet eastern slopes. The zones start at about 1,300 meters and continue to the summit at 4,507 meters; These include subtropical montane forest, orthotropic bamboo forest, orthotropic cloud forest, orthotropic moorland forest, and highly tropical meadows and forests.

The summit is covered in snow and may be covered by a unique lenticular cloud, a rare sight that adds to the mystical quality of the summit. Along the way, you’ll pass Dian Fossey’s burial shrine and may even spot some of the various wildlife that lives on the mountain.
Mount Bisoke is slightly shorter than Mount Karisimbi at 3,711 meters but offers one of the most challenging Mountain Hiking Tours experiences in Rwanda.

After a 2-hour hike from Bisate Village, head into the dense jungle and begin your ascent to the summit. At the top is Lake Ngezi, one of the most scenic and remote spots in Rwanda that is sure to stay in your memory for many years after your active jungle vacation. The lake is not suitable for swimming, but we encourage all our guests to take lots of photos to have memories of their time at the top of Mount Bisoke.

Canopy Walking Safaris in Rwanda – Nyungwe Forest National Park

If ever a park was designed for trekkers and hikers visiting Africa, it would be Nyungwe Forest National Park in southwest Rwanda. The park is equipped with a network of Mountain Hiking Tours trails to offer every guest a first-class vacation close to nature. Guided hikes can last anywhere from one to seven hours, depending on your fitness level and desired participation in the park’s spectacular beauty.

For beginners and inexperienced hikers, we recommend the 2.1-kilometer Igishigishigi Trail for incredible views overlooking Canopy Trail; Karamba Trail to see an old gold mine, military camp, and market; and the Muzimu Trail, which meanders through remote eucalyptus and pine forests. Experienced hikers who enjoy bird watching along the gorges of the Uwinka Trail can also enjoy the four waterfalls along the less than 10-kilometer Imbaranga Trail. Advanced hikers are invited to challenge themselves along the CongoNile Divide Trail; It takes several days to cover the entire 227-kilometer route, which follows the Nile and Congo rivers.

Several other moderately difficult trails are available to our guests’ wishes and abilities. The Umgote Trail offers an abundance of bird and primate wildlife amidst tropical rainforests and flower-strewn mountain ranges. On a clear day, you can see Kibira National Park in Burundi. If you love waterfalls, we recommend the Umoyove Trail, lined with tall trees, and the Izumo Trail, which takes you through tea fields and rainforest canyons. Alternatively, you can take the Kamiranzovu trail to visit the park’s wetlands, as well as a swamp and a waterfall.

The volcanic geology of Nyungwe National Park is highlighted along the Bigugu Trail and the Irebero Trail, which circle two of the highest peaks. Both trails also offer impeccable views of Lake Kivu. Pack a brisk picnic lunch and trek the Ngabwe Trail, which takes two paths to the summit. You might even want to spend the night at a campsite. Although you will have many opportunities to view Africa’s primates during your wilderness journey, Nyungwe National Park boasts one of the top chimpanzee viewing trails. Ruzuki Trail is an exhilarating trek that will stimulate your body and senses along with great views of Banda village.

No matter how deep you want to delve into Rwanda’s natural beauty, the country offers a variety of Mountain Hiking Tours & trails to suit your interests. Study the finer details, breathe in the high mountain air, observe wildlife in a pristine environment, and marvel at unrivaled views, all in one place.
