about us

Mercator Assistance is able to organise mountain biking tours appropriate to different groups capabilities. In the case of professional or serious cyclists this could mean a 7-10 day tour of Rwanda, incorporating various other visits and activities, such as tracking gorillas in Volcanoes National Park. For more leisurely cyclists Mercator Assistance is able to organise shorter circuits around Kigali and other Rwandan towns. All cycle tours are accompanied by a support vehicle carrying all luggage, food, bottled water and a doctor.

In addition to the activities we organise for tourists, Mercator Assistance Tours and Safaris is actively involved in The International Marathon for Peace. In May each year, in collaboration with the Soroptimist club, Mercator Assistance Tours and Safaris is responsible for managing participants and spectators in the International Marathon for Peace. In addition, these participants are able to visit the country and take part in various other activities and visits
