The Ultimate Cycling Adventure

We offer tailor-made mountain bike cycling adventures in the African bush. Mountain bike trails through the bushveld are one of a kind! Experience true wilderness on your own mountain bike on a guided trail through untamed African bush.

These are neither fast nor competitive cycling events. It allows you to explore Big Five terrain more comprehensively than during a walking trail. You can stop frequently to enjoy the ecological diversity, exploring a variety of fauna and flora throughout your trail.

The Big Five are attracted by the perennial water in the drier winter months, when there are large herds of elephant and buffalo to circumnavigate. The cooler, dry months from April to September are best for cycling. However, the trails are open throughout the year.

WHAT TO DO

Makuleke

The Makuleke region is situated in the northern part of the Kruger National Park. The 24 000 ha private concession is located between the Luvuvhu River to the south and the Limpopo to the north. It is primarily a sandveld environment, distinguished by its central African vegetation, large alluvial flood plains, and probably more animal and plant species diversity than anywhere else.

The area is a favourite winter grazing ground for elephant from Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and elsewhere in the Kruger. Leopard favour the thick bush environment, and prey on the nyala and impala that feed close to the river. There is a large population of hippos and crocs at the confluence of the Limpopo and Luvuvhu rivers at Crooks’ Corner. Among the more unusual sightings in the Makuleke Reserve are eland and Sharpe’s grysbok.

Timbavati

The Timbavati region is situated in the central part of the Greater Kruger area. It affords guests the best opportunity to view the great diversity of wildlife that South Africa has to offer. This prime wilderness area boasts the Big Five, a large diversity of antelope species, the entire range of smaller predators, over 500 bird species, and a tremendous diversity of reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates.

The landscape is typical of the undulating granitic Lowveld basin, with large broad-leafed trees dominating the uplands, followed by Acacia woodlands, which give way to the large trees that form the riverine vegetation in the valley bottoms. Highly-productive and open sodic areas dominate along the sandy riverbeds.
