“When creating this event we wanted to offer all our participants the opportunity to join us on an all-encompassing tour of Rwanda. There are some amazing things to see but navigating various tour companies can be challenging. Therefore, we are catering for this and created an event that is part race, part holiday of a lifetime”.
