A unique mountain bike holiday in South Africa and Botswana which will tick both your biking and wildlife boxes during a classy adventure in Africa.
Following arrival in Johannesburg we’ll head to the famed Mt. Anderson. Situated at 2000m in the dramatic Drakensberg Mountains above the town of Sabie and west of the world famous Kruger National Park, we’ll be in a truly breathtaking setting for our first few days of the trip. Our riding during these initial days takes in some great routes including the Bushmans Trail and Goldrush as we explore the old mining trails around Mt. Anderson and affords us some great wildlife spotting opportunities. Our final ride here is a real gem and finishes at a wonderful mountain lodge, just perfect for highland vistas!
A transfer mid-point of the trip takes us over the border to Botswana and The Land of the Giants - Mashatu. This is the largest privately owned game reserve in Africa and is dominated by open savannah and the thick river vegetation of the mighty Limpopo River. Our accommodation here is in wilderness camps, set up prior to your arrival, that offer good comfort without distracting from a true wilderness experience! The riding is a relaxed affair and we’ll often encounter elephants, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and occasionally see lions and leopards. There will of course be a back-up vehicle and armed riding guides with us at all times and we also have the option of a game drive to ensure you get the very most of this incredible area.
Accommodation has been kept to a very high standard throughout this trip, with almost all meals included in the price. Combine this with top biking trails lots of wildlife spotting and we’ve the experience of a lifetime for you; and all by bike!
If our set dates don't work we can offer the trip on any Wednesday year round, just give us a call for details.
