Africa cycling tours

When people picture lycra-clad cyclists climbing epic switchbacks or zooming down scenic coastal roads, Africa doesn’t usually figure. But those people have probably never heard of the off-road tracks that snake between Longido and Lengai in Tanzania. They’ve probably never seen Morocco’s earthen village in Ait Benhaddou. African cycling tours are certainly a different gear in terms of unique adventure and the perfect combo for those who like their wildlife safari with an added dash of exercise. We’ll lead you through game parks and cities, along volcanic tracks and across sandy deserts – all on two wheels. These are cycling tours, but not as you know them…

My trip through Morocco was absolutely amazing. I am a solo female traveller and I was very fortunate to be part of a great group of travellers who connected quickly and enjoyed each other's company. Mohamed was instrumental in ensuring that everything ran smoothly, and that our entire tour was a positive experience. I am not as strong a biker as many of the others and chose to pay the extra for an e-bike, which was a great decision. Some of the elevations are intense, so if you are not a strong biker, this is a perfect solution to be able to enjoy the journey. If you are a woman travelling alone, and want to have a more meaningful experience of a country, then I would recommend this trip.

An amazing trip with a great combination of cycling and other activities. Fantastic introduction to Morocco provided in safe and fully supported way. Opportunities provided that would be hard to replicate if travelling solo. Incredible value.
