The "Cycle Namibia" tour starts and ends in Windhoek. It is a mountain biking tour that takes 12 days taking you through Etosha National Park, Waterberg Plateau, Spitzkoppe and 6 other destinations in Namibia. "Cycle Namibia" is a guided small group tour 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.
