Cycling


Cycling far from busy roads and main tourist routes you will experience a different face of Africa. Both in Tanzania and Kenya you can spend a part of your holiday cycling through the diverse and spectacular landscapes: open savannah, desert, mountain rainforest or tropical coastline.


Depending on your preferences, we can arrange for you a tour that lasts a day, a week or even longer, combined with game driving. While cycling, you will have the chance to explore local villages and traditional tribesmen, breathtaking scenery and wildlife grazing on the plains.

One of the most popular cycling routes starts from Arusha in the north of Tanzania and goes all the way through cultivated banana and coffee plantations before meeting the Rift Valley and the grasslands used by the Masai for grazing cattle. The route continues next to the shores of Lake Manyara, where it is highly possible that you will spot some game. You can also cycle around Lake Natron and the awe-inspiring active volcano Ol Doinyo Lengai, take the big tour from Nairobi to Dar es Salaam, or we can arrange a custom tour, in order to visit the places you prefer  

We will provide you with a bike suitable for your height and the tour you have picked, under the guidance of our cycling experts. A vehicle will be joining us, carrying all the necessary equipment for camping and dining, as well as a cook that will be preparing delicious meals. While most of the riding is non-technical some off road biking experience will help and a good level of fitness will add to the enjoyment of your trip.
