Hot on the heels of riding safaris come mountain bike safaris, a 21st century adrenaline buzz. Like riding safaris, these offer the same fabulous combination of up-close immersion in the bush and the ability to cover more ground than simply exploring on foot. Without the confines of a vehicle around you, there’s a serious thrill in feeling up close and personal with the wildlife.
Most mountain biking safaris are offered as part of a spectrum of activities at a safari lodge or camp, and it’d be common to go out for an afternoon or so following a morning game drive. Certainly it’s an excellent way to burn off the endless amounts of (delicious) food that seems to come with a safari. For those who want to dip their toe into the world of mountain bike safaris we can arrange this at several camps in South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia, depending on what else you’d like to include in your trip.
For truly committed adventurers, we can arrange several days of mountain biking in the wilderness. This is the sort of adventure that you usually only get to do if you know someone, and fortunately, with over 10 years of experience in Africa, we can offer just that. Our absolute favourite multi-day mountain biking trip is through the wild and remote bush of Laikipia in Northern Kenya (where the header picture was taken) and can be tailored to your own requirements.
If you’re feeling especially adventurous (and are a very fit and experienced mountain-biker) we can also arrange mountain biking on Mt. Kilimanjaro– now that really is a challenge!
