An epic mountain bike holiday in Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa
This wide-ranging and exciting biking holiday begins at the world-famous Victoria Falls and finishes in Cape Town. After cycling to Africa's most impressive waterfall on the very first day, we employ a sensible mix of vehicle transfers and cycling stages, as we bike from Zambia across Botswana by way of the Makgadikgadi Saltpan, the Okavango Delta and the Kalahari Desert.
This action-packed holiday also includes plenty of time off the bikes, to enjoy a riverboat cruise on the Chobe River, game drives in the Moremi Game Reserve (Okavango) and the opportunity to spend a little time with the San (Bushman) people and learn a little of their self-sufficient lifestyle. Then, continuing our journey to the Namibian capital Windhoek, we have several days and half-days of wild cycling, as we cross the vast Namib Desert and stop off to visit the amazing sand dunes at Sossusvlei. Still heading south and following sections of the 'Long Way Down' route, our epic biking journey takes us to the awe-inspiring Fish River Canyon. Crossing into South Africa, we stop off to ride a loop into the spectacular Cederberg Mountains, before making our final approach to Cape Town with Table Mountain looming ahead of us. A final day of cycling from the Cape of Good Hope via the iconic Chapman's Peak Drive is a fitting way to complete this sustained biking expedition which you will look back on as 'the experience of a lifetime'.
