    Our entire group agreed that this was the trip of a lifetime! However, I spent the entire plane ride home plotting how I could take the exact same trip again. We spent the entire tour with AMAZING guides who led us through their "home" and provided us with the opportunity to enjoy sunny South Africa as the local do.

    The biking on this trip is all done on mountain bikes. The terrain and rides vary, and we added miles onto the routes on a few of the days. The guides allow your group to set the bike pace, and there is always the van to tour in if riding isn't an option. However, our entire group loved all of the biking. My personal favorite was all of giraffes we saw on our bikes. It is amazing way to see the sights!

    My only concern prior to this trip was the food, but we ate like kings and queens. Who knew they served cold and hot breakfast?! We enjoyed tons of fresh produce, including avocados and grapefruits straight from the trees.

    This trip is a great balance of touring and biking, and if you are even considering going, you must go. You, too, will leave plotting a way to get back again. Enjoy sunny South Africa!

    Our entire group agreed that this was a trip of a lifetime, but I was plotting how and when I could take the exact same trip again on the plane ride home. This tour provides an excellent balance of biking and enjoying South Africa as the locals do. The guides are amazing, and they do an amazing job of showing you their home. The biking is enjoyable. We covered different terrains, and many rides could be adjusted based upon skill level and desire. (We biked extra a few days.) However, our guides also provided us with additional experiences based upon our interests and desires. For example, we toured a local school, and as a teacher, it was an amazing opportunity to see education outside of the US. The only thing I was worried about prior to this trip was the food, but we ate like kings and queens around the clock. The produce is amazing...fresh avocados and grapefruits straight from the trees!! If you are considering this trip, you must take it!!! Enjoy sunny South Africa!!

    This sounds so amazing! I would love to go on a bike tour in South Africa and see all of the amazing animals while doing my favorite exercise! I currently have only done bike tours in Napa and Sonoma County, where you can also visit wineries while on the tour. Its so much fun! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Petting a cheetah & having breakfast with her were most memorable. Guides were outstanding. They were full of information & happy to share their knowledge & experience with everyone. We received a genuine glimpse into rural South Africa.
