HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Cycling through magnificent and diverse landscapes
Starting and ending in Windhoek, the "Cycle Namibia" tour is a guided mountain biking trip that takes 12 days. You will travel through Etosha National Park, Rooisand Desert Ranch, Sesriem and 6 other destinations in Namibia. "Cycle Namibia" is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Namibia is a vast country with wide open spaces and endless skies. Sand dunes gradually turn into granite hills, whilst rocky outcrops give way to vast plains where elephants, giraffes and lions roam. Travelling through the wilderness by bike is undoubtedly one of the best ways to experience the varied landscape of this desert nation and there is also the unique experience of cycling over sand dunes on a modified ‘fat’ bike.Discover the country’s highlights and hidden secrets on two wheels, watch the sun rise over the tallest sand dunes in the world and experience game drives in one of southern Africa’s best game reserves, Etosha National Park.

Cycle Namibia with Mabaruli African Safaris
“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.”

“The cycling was hard on gravel and sand roads in 35 degree heat with a head wind. If you are not experienced in off road this trip will feel more like a grade 4 . Saying that some of the riding was amazing. Riding on the fat boy cycles over the dunes for nearly 4 hours was amazing and should be on peoples bucket list. The wild life matched expectation , Elephants, lions, white and black Rhino,cheaters.Camp sites were clean but basic, they were lovely sitting in the dessert watching the stars.”

Namibia is fabulous
“This is an amazing way of discovering Namibia whilst getting some good cycling in under blue skies. The scenery changed constantly, wildlife was abundant and the geological features were astounding. This was not a serious cycling trip and the emphasis Was more on the wildlife and landscape. I would have given this trip 5/5 but was disappointed that one of the cycling days was completey cancelled and no longer takes place as the road is too busy and the FatBiking was about 5 miles for 2 hours not 22 miles for 3.5 hours as advertised. Since my main reason for going was the cycling this did marr the holiday a little however it was still fabulous and I would urge you to go, just dont expect as much cycling as advertised.I am vegetarian and was well catered for.”
