Skedaddle Twaddle about our trips in Africa

Bike Swaziland! Africa’s best kept secret

Join our latest mountain bike journey in the wild kingdom of Swaziland, singletrack and sundowners! Here you can experience lesser visited trails, on a once in a lifetime journey taking in some of the world’s most mighty mammals. Watch our video for a sneak peek, or read on t o discover more:

Challenging trails to thrill en route…
During the course of the trip there will be everything from flowing singletrack across grassy meadows to smooth forest dirt roads, as well as some short sections of granite slickrock to boot. All this with epic vistas to accompany you…what’s not to like?

A fun-filled journey bursting with varied experiences…
The first few days we will be riding in the mountainous area in the west, then descending to the lower hills and wildlife abundant grasslands of Nkonyeni, before the final leg of the tour in the enchanting forests of Mbuluzi in the far north-east.

Wonderful wildlife around every bend…
Swaziland is a hugely underrated safari destination where you can see many of Africa’s biggest mammals! As you explore this stunning destination you can expect to be sharing the trails with plenty of giraffes, as well as getting the chance to spot rhino and other mesmerising exotic animals.

Sawubona Swaziland  our amazing new biking destination bursting with rarely seen experiences that adventure seekers will love.

From spotting some of the biggest mammals from the saddle to soaking up the ancient traditions that few other travellers experience, this is a journey that promises to inspire from the get-go. Having visited earlier this year, our videographer Olly (see his fantastic video above!) had this to say:

As an adventure filmmaker, I spend my life looking for amazing visual images to help tell a story. Swaziland’s fantastic combination of striking scenery, vibrant colours and beautiful light left an indelible imprint in my mind. Cycling through Swaziland with Saddle Skedaddle will be a treat for your other senses too – from the pre-dawn roar of a mighty Lion to the smoky aroma of an evening braai with a private chef, this is a trip that you won’t forget in a hurry!
