Details of Mountain biking safari

Mountain biking in East Africa is a really stunning experience for the fit and adventurous tourist. In Tanzania, mountain biking is mostly done in the northern region, especially around Lake Manyara National Park and Kilimanjaro National Park, while Kenya's Hell's Gate National Park is arguably the premier mountain biking destination in all of East Africa.

Mountain Biking in Tanzania

There is a wealth of options when it comes to undertaking a mountain biking safari in Tanzania. Shadows of Africa partners with a number of local tour operators to arrange these fun add-on activities.

  • Full-Day Arusha National Park Tour
  • Half-day Mto Wa Mbu Village Tour
  • Half-day Mto Wa Mbu and Great Rift Valley Tour
  • 3-Day Kilimanjaro Cycling Tour
  • Full-Day Kilimanjaro base tour
  • Full-day Maji Moto hotsprings tour
  • Full-day Maasai village cycling tour
  • Full-day Marangu village and waterfall cycling tour
  • Full-day Zanzibar cycling adventure

The above are just a few of the fantastic options available to avid cyclists in Tanzania, but there are so many more. Whether you're interested in a half-day tour or a multi-day adventure that takes you across Tanzania (such as Arusha to Zanzibar!), we can help!

Mountain Biking in Kenya

Hell's Gate National Park is arguably the best place in East Africa for a bike safari. It's unique volcanic landscape and the lack of dangerous predators makes it the perfect place to get out and explore without fear.

With both self-guided and guided tour options available, visitors to Hell's Gate National Park can explore at their leisure, freely mixing in some hiking and rock-climbing with their cycling.

Of course, you're not limited to only Hell's Gate National Park. It's also possible to arrange cycling tours of Lake NaivashaNairobi, and the picturesque Kenya Coast.
