Holiday Information

Swaziland is home to some of the finest mountain biking that Africa has to offer. There’s everything from smooth flowing singletrack through broadleaf forest, fast sinuous trails across grassy meadows and sections of quite challenging rocky riding including some fantastic slickrock trails. This is an experience of a lifetime combining great unexplored biking with fascinating African culture and wildlife.
It is one of those destinations that although you know the name, you may well have to look it up on a map to find out where it is! Swaziland is a small landlocked country located in the far eastern corner of South Africa.
Not only are the trails amazing, but the scenery and the interaction with wildlife that you will experience are world-class too – there’s not many parts of the world where you will be sharing the trails with herds of Giraffe! Swaziland is a land of variety and during this trip we hope to show you all the best bits that this amazing country has to offer. We’ll start in the mountainous west of the country and slowly work our way north and east, heading through the lower grassland areas and ending in the hills and vast forests of the far north-east border country.
As well as fantastic riding and amazing scenery, we’ve made sure the accommodation is pretty special on this trip too – everything from straw-thatched beehive huts lit by paraffin lights to a tented-camp located in the middle of a forest nature reserve, where our private chef will arrive and prepare an amazing BBQ dinner. Every location offers something different, but all have a good level of comfort and understated luxury – even in our tented camp for example you will have an en-suite bathroom (with a choice of indoor and outdoor showers), proper beds and solid floors.
