  • Bike along winding paths, picturesque landscape, villages, farms, and tea plantations

Tanzania is an undiscovered bicycle tour paradise. From the foothills of Kilimanjaro with its mountain villages and coffee farms, to the plains below, and beyond through the Usambara mountains down to the Pangani Coast, there are countless miles of dirt roads, footpaths, and single-track to explore.

Our multi-day tour can be custom-designed for all skill levels. All bike tours are guided and include the use of mountain bikes and cycling helmets. Multi-day rides are fully supported with a sag wagon. Bicycle tour can be the centre-piece of your African adventure or added as an extension to any itinerary.

On this physically demanding cross-country bicycle ride we travel on dirt roads and forest paths across high ridges and along river valleys dotted with villages, proceeding from the northwest edge of the Usambara range to its southeast corner, where we reach the flat coastal plain that leads to the Indian Ocean.

Anonymous's review for another Enosa Expeditions tour
5 - Excellent
“If someone will ask me about Africa,i will tell him/her that Africa is a beautiful place.
I was in Tanzania last week,and i visited several wonderful places including Mount Kilimanjaro,Serengeti,Ngorongoro and Manyara.
Company which organised my tour was Enosa Expeditions which is based in Moshi Tanzania. I did not want to use Chinese or other international companies because some of my friends advised me to use local companies due to the reasons that they have a tendecy of protecting their clients and once you get any problems it will be simple to solve it.
I climb Mount Kilimanjaro through Lemosho route for 7 days and our guides made sure that we reach the Summit of Mount Kilimanjaro.
We also went to Serengeti,Ngorongoro and Manyara for 4 days;it was very nice to see elephants,Lions and Leopards.
Enosa Expeditions offered me accomodation in a very nice hotel called Keys hotel. And they gave me an offer of visiting Lake Challa which is a very nice place for people who likes to play with water. I did not pay for that.
I would like to encourage my fellow friends to visit Tanzania a very beautiful and peaceful place”
Anonymous's review for another Enosa Expeditions tour
4 - Very Good
“Two weeks ago I was in Tanzania and I did Mount Kilimanjaro trekking as well as I did two days safari trip in Manyara National park and Serengeti National Park.
For Mount Kilimanjaro I used Lemosho route, am not aware about other route but the tour company which organised our tour suggested this route because they had a group which was going by that day. After Mount Kilimanjaro I did two days safari in Manyara and Serengeti. Enosa Expeditions is a company which organised my tour and they did everything for me including booking for hotel and accommodation was very nice, they had good tour guides. I would like to compliment them because they are so professionals.
I like to advice other guys not to be scared to do Mount Kilimanjaro trekking because is not difficult as other people think. The most important thing is to get good tour company”

“Noel, the owner of the company, really took good care me. All arrangements were taken care of and we even reached the Summit of Mt Kilimanjaro - very happy with that. Thanks for an amazing climb!”
4 hours Eco lodge
After arriving at Kilimanjaro International Airport you are welcomed by your tour guide and transferred to Lushoto in a Tanga.

Drive from Kilimanjaro to the edge of the Usambara Mountains, which offer wide vistas, a cool climate, winding paths, and picturesque villages. You will spend the remaining hours at a very nice and comfortable lodge in Mambo village.

Mambo is a small village with about 5000 inhabitants. Development is still essential at all levels and in almost every aspect here. Despite the fact that life is tough, people from Mambo work hard and try their best to make something out of it.
Camping
Today’s ride takes us through multiple lush valleys and small villages into Shume, a former German colonial outpost where many of the early settlers’ buildings are still in use. Outside of Shume we have long ascents across two forested mountain ridges followed by a long descent into a densely settled valley.
Camping
Start with a climb up a steep dirt track into the forest, eventually opening up to stunning views in all directions. From there we have a long descent through villages nestled on the mountain slope. We continue over ridges with gentle drops to the fertile valleys below, and one long 5.5 km uphill ride hugging a mountainside.

The day’s ride ends at Bumbuli (42 km.) or 15 kilometers farther at Funta. Load the bikes onto the trailer and drive 50 kilometers across the hot and dry Lwengera Valley.

Camp is at the road’s end on the edge of the Nilo Nature Reserve.
Camping
The first several kilometers are on a dirt track through the dense forest of the Nilo Nature Reserve before opening out to views of the eastern Usambaras and a series of small villages along a mountain ridge. We ride this ridge as we pass between villages, forests, and numerous tea plantations.

After a long downhill ride, we enter Amani Nature Reserve and the final kilometers uphill to our Emau Hill camp.
Hotel
The final day covers the most distance, but is almost all downhill.

Start with a gentle descent through dense tropical forest from Amani in the mountains to the gateway town of Muheza. Cross a tarmac road marking an abrupt change from lush mountain environment to coastal plain. The soil is sandy, the scent of the sea is in the air, and the tropical heat intensifies.

The coast is home to the Swahili people, whose livelihood comes from the sea, and whose villages have a distinctly different look and feel than those in the mountains. The Indian Ocean draws us along on this mostly flat section to our final destination at the beach.
Hotel
Day at your leisure to enjoy the beach and ocean.

Note: lunch and dinner not included.
Depart mid-morning for the six-hour drive back to Kilimanjaro to catch your flight home or continue on to your next adventure.
