On our 16 day family adventure we travel from Dar es Salaam in Tanzania to Nairobi in Kenya. Traveling far from busy roads and main tourist routes you will experience a different face of Africa - local villages and traditional tribesmen, breathtaking scenery and wildlife grazing on the plains. We travel through open Savannah, desert, mountain rainforest and tropical coastline. We hike in the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro with its snow-covered peaks and camp in the wilderness under a cloudless African sky.
We take a break from our bikes to visit Ngorongoro Crater, which hosts the largest concentration of plains game anywhere in the world and Amboseli National Park in Kenya to give you the wildlife experience that East Africa is famous for. Enjoy a day hike on the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro and visit a local school in the unspoilt Usambara Mountains. Bike through the Usambara Mountains and along the tropical Indian Ocean coastline, camp with a local Maasai family, stroke a giraffe, ride an ostrich and so much more.
What is the biking like?
9 days with biking - 90% on dirt and 4x4 roads, some paved roads, and a wee bit of non-technical single track. While most of the riding on this trip is non-technical some off road biking experience will help. A good level of fitness will add to the enjoyment of your trip. From 10km to 40km per day. Total distance approximately 200 - 230km. Fully vehicle supported.
