Cycle Namibia
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“This is a well organised and diverse trip. Good cycling, great and varied topography and wonderful wildlife. This is just such a good way to see a good cross section of Namibia. The campsites were terrific set in some wonderful locations and to get swimming pools in some of them is a real bonus.”

“Madagascar with Lucien and his agency's Cycle Tours is a great adventure. Lucien is a great guide and with his team he ensured that all went smoothly. We enjoyed some great riding, good food and fascinating culture and wildlife. I highly recommend this trip as a great way to see Madagascar.”
Cycle Namibia with Mabaruli African Safaris
5 - Excellent
  • JOANNE KNIGHT
“The trip with Mabaruli African Safaris exceeded my expectations. It's a shame I could not book direct with the local company. Our guide (Stefan) was a wicked smart gentleman with a great sense of humour and in control of everything. The support guides (Happy & Michael) went over and above to make everything comfortable and met all my needs. Love these guys and hope to return one day to see more of Namibia.”

Highlights of Africa Cycling Tours

  • Spot the Big 5 in Kruger’s bushveld on your South African trip.
  • Bike between lodges on a Serengeti safari, taking in wildebeest migrations and volcanic craters for a true African cycling tour experience.
  • Embark on a full-day trek in Isalo National Park in Madagascar, where you can cycle through bushland and thick forests. Take time to explore canyons and cool off in natural waterfalls.
  • Cycling on your Morocco trip is comfortable as the route follows smooth paved roads. You get a chance to traverse mountain passes and get stunning panoramic views of the High Atlas and Anti-Atlas mountains.
  • Pedal through the Great Pyramids of Giza or ride along the coast of the Red Sea when in Egypt.
  • Combine your love for cycling with a thrilling gorilla trekking adventure in the lush rainforests while on a trip to Uganda and Rwanda. Get up close to these incredible primates while exploring the diverse landscapes of East Africa.
  • Venture to Madagascar, where you can bike through unique ecosystems, from dense rainforests to pristine beaches. Encounter lemurs, chameleons, and other endemic wildlife in this biodiversity hotspot.

Tips of Africa Cycling Tours

  • The ideal time for an Africa bicycle tour varies depending on the region or country you intend to visit. The dry season is preferable for cycling to avoid muddy or flooded roads — so make sure you check when that occurs in the country you want to explore.
  • If you’re on your first Africa cycling tour, Rwanda is a good place to start. Known as the “Land of a Thousand Hills,” Rwanda offers a mix of moderate terrain, making it suitable for beginners.
  • Biking in Africa's often hot and arid conditions can be physically demanding. Make sure to pack an ample supply of water and energy snacks to keep yourself well-hydrated and energized throughout your rides. Also, familiarize yourself with local sources of clean drinking water and resupply points, or carry water-purification tablets.
  • If your cycling route includes national parks or protected areas, you may need to obtain permits to access and cycle within these areas. These permits often include park entry fees and conservation fees.
  • Certain regions in Africa, such as Cape Town, and the coastal countries in East Africa, like Kenya and Tanzania, offer favorable climates for year-round cycling.
  • Be cautious of heavy traffic and aggressive driving, especially in major cities like Marrakech and Casablanca. Stick to designated cycling lanes or quieter back roads whenever possible.
