Safari on Bicycles

BIG 5 CYCLING SAFARIS

Cycling through Botswana is the most epic experience for small groups of trailblazers, adrenalin junkies and wildlife enthusiasts! This is where action meets adventure – explore the ancient elephant paths that have shaped the Okavango Delta for centuries. With two professional guides, one at the front and one at the back on each ride and a logistical support team on the ground, you’ll be in the best hands while cycling alongside acacia woodlands, wandering riverbanks, mopane forests and beautiful savannah grasslands, all brimming with wildlife and endless African horizons. Your guides have cycled these areas for years and will take you to places few tyres have dared to tread… so hang onto your handlebars for this extraordinary cycling experience!

CYCLING SAFARI INFO

Safety

Your bicycle and your safety are top priority when it comes to cycling in the remote wilderness areas of the Okavango Delta. Getting your bike to Botswana will take some forward planning from your side, but once on safari, you can leave the rest up to the professional safari team.

Support

There will be a back-up vehicle with a support crew, so there will be someone to assist should there be anything you need throughout your safari. E-bikes can be charged from a charging facility – so you’ll always be able to put power to the pedals. There will be bike maintenance facilities and mechanical support – so if anything needs fixing or pumped up, the backup team will gladly assist.
