Travel at the pace of Africa on this 16 day camping & cycling tour; experience the people, culture, wildlife and landscapes of this amazing continent.
Cycle Tanzania and Kenya is a 16 day camping cycle tour from Nairobi to Dar es Salaam (or reverse journey) using remote back roads and visiting local families and villages along the way. Our route varies from the chaos of Nairobi city to the sudden sparseness of open savannah with wildlife grazing the plains. 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 the tropical Indian Ocean coast.
Biking far from the tourist routes you will experience Africa at face level – you’ll view wildlife from the saddle of your bike, meet Maasai tribesmen and camp in the wilderness under a cloudless African sky.
