This two-wheeled adventure takes you through stunning mountain scenery and past dramatic rock formations, through abandoned gold mines, baboon inhabited forests and tranquil natural waterfalls.
Part way through the trip you will dismount your bike and spend two days on safari in Kruger National Park where you will have the chance to spot lions, rhinos, elephants, giraffes and various other wild animals. From Kruger, you will continue your pedal-powered journey along this panoramic route before ending at the mighty Blyde River Canyon.
The cycling is all on good condition paved roads, apart from two short stretches of hard-packed gravel road on days 5 & 7. Most of the cycling is over undulating terrain with some challenging climbs that are followed by long flowing descents. Your cycling guide leads the group and a support vehicle follows at all times with snack stops set up every 15km where you can re-fill water bottles and help yourself to sweets and snacks.
*Note that the minimum age on this tour is 16 so families with older children who are 16+ are most welcome to join.
