The Cycle Namibia trip starts from and ends in Windhoek. It is a mountain biking trip that takes 12 days taking you through Swakopmund, Waterberg Plateau, Sesriem and 6 other destinations in Namibia. Cycle Namibia is a guided small group trip that 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
5 - Excellent

“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.”
Cycling Namibia
4 - Very Good
“Overall a great trip. You'll see a lot of wildlife, on the road side while cycling and then even more on the safari. And I hadn't appreciated the vastness of Namibia before I went - cycling all morning without a single car passing us really made you appreciate how sparsely populated a country it is. And neither had I appreciated the different forms the desert before... sand, rock, salt etc.”
Bucket List Trip
5 - Excellent
“I loved this trip, and seeing, climbing and then flying over the amazing dunes lived up to my expectations. Big bucket list tick for that. And the wildlife round and about, but especially in Etosha (particularly at the camp waterhole) was brilliant. Watching rhino's preliminary mating dance, elephants bathing and a stand off with a pride of lions, from a safe distance while supping red wine, was one of life's great experiences.”
Cycling in Namibia
4 - Very Good
“Namibia would not be my number ever travel destination as much of the country is ordinary and the distances between the highlights are too long. That said don't dismiss it. The two things that most fascinated me was the seeming harmony between all the races and tribes, compared with just over the border in South Africa and the maintenance of a significant German influence in both architecture (old and new) and language. And for the latter it is over a 100 years since it was a German colony.”
