How to join an Adventure Cycling Tour in Kenya

Adventure Cycling are all about cycling among big animals which can’t be met in any continent other than Africa. Tribes like the Masai Mara, who still live as they did hundreds of years ago, aren’t fenced-in like in the western world, therefore with such a cycling tour in Kenya, they simply cycle right through their habitats. This tour delivers an unforgettable, life-changing experience for many. Adventure Cycling take you on two wheels from one nature gem to another, mixed with safari and boat tour adventures in order to release the strain on your muscles that you get when cycling on unpaved rural roads, often up-hill and through valleys.

The Adventure Cycling Tour Kenya

This is a cycling tour of about 1000 km and 17 days /16 nights. It goes without saying that participants don’t easily buy a long-distance airline ticket in order to make a crossing to Nairobi Airport for just a few nice cycling days.

Partakers in this tour are particularly pleased with the good balance in cycling effort, mixed with relaxation by boat trips, excursions, and safaris. The tour structure is adjusted to severe cycling and recuperation, necessary to be able to complete the often demanding tour days.

Biking through the Rift Valley, Kenya

Although there is a robust escort car that follows the cyclists every day for their safety and possible need of service, it rarely happens that one of the cyclists swaps his or her two wheels for a ride on four wheels due to exhaustion.

The cyclists have a comfortable night’s rest to keep them going every day. The one occasion when the cyclists will camp two nights on the shores of Lake Bogoria is unique. This camp experience is rated as highly impressive because in the evening (with darkness from about 8PM), the hippos come out from the lake to graze on the terrain near the tents. This is literally a dark Africa experience.

Marvelous Africa

No other continent on our planet is home to such vast numbers of big wild animals as in Africa, where they still live in their natural habitat. For this reason, African wildlife parks attract masses of visitors from all over the world, who want to come into close contact with this extraordinary wildlife one finds in the richest protected wildlife reserves of the world.

Watching a Lion Family in Massai Mara

The famous Masai Mara Reserve

When the cycling group approaches the Masai Mara area, the nature changes to vast and sloping savannah landscape. This area in particular houses many large animal species and small groups such as lion families, elephants, giraffes, cheetahs, leopards and enormous groups like wildebeests and zebras.

Of course, there are many more animal species to be found here. Large animals such as hippos and rhinos have been encountered on the cycling tour route before, especially when the tour visited the large lakes which are paradise for bird-watchers as well.

Mara and the Serengeti in bordering Tanzania are the habitat of the Masai, semi-nomadic people in colorful clothing, who tend to be tall, slim and fond of dancing their typical Masai dance. Guests who want to dance along with them are welcome.

Globe-trotter, all-terrain cycling fanatic and Tour Master René van Veldhuijzen personally cycles with you as your 24/7 private guide, dedicated to letting you have an experience you won’t ever forget.
