Bicycle

Rwanda is an exceptionally hilly country, but it's also unusually scenic and has a very good road network by African standards. Cycling is certainly possible here, and for many locals it's their main way of getting around. Do expect lots of challenging hills, however (locals often hang on to the back of trucks to make it up to the top – not a very safe practice!), and also many freewheeling descents.
