A 16 day family bicycle tour. Experience the wildlife, people, culture and camp in the wilderness under a cloudless African sky.
East Africa is a wonderful place to travel as a family - it is colourful, lively and culturally interesting (even for the kids)! We have put together this 16 day biking and camping journey from Nairobi to Dar es Salaam to suit families and younger riders. We follow the same researched riding routes as our ‘standard’ trip, but have reduced the riding distances and picked the best of the riding on remote back roads. We camp alongside a local Maasai family, spend time in the classroom and sports field of a local school, visit animal orphanages and centres and stop and play a lot to keep the kids engaged. We pass beneath the imposing Mt Kilimanjaro, visit Amboseli National Park in Kenya, the Ngorongoro Crater and Saadani National Park in Tanzania before heading for mountain rain forested Usambara Mountains and ultimately out to the long white sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean.
