Join us on a 10-day circumnavigation of Mount Kilimanjaro by mountain bikes, designed as an encounter with the people, the environment and the wildlife of this famous mountain. This trip is for active people who are comfortable exploring new cultures and environments. While not an extreme physical adventure, participation on the trip does require that you be physically fit, culturally adaptable and have some current experience riding a mountain bike off-road. On this trip, we will cover about 20 miles per day on our bikes, in order to complete a 100 mile circumnavigation of the mountain in about 5 days of riding.

 

On the trip, we will be supported by a full camp crew and two dedicated support vehicles with on-board radio communication. Riders will be in regular radio contact with the support vehicles, one of which will follow behind. Those that wish to take an occasional break from riding will have the option of riding in the support vehicles.

 

 

The ten day trip will include:

 

         Five days riding through the various ecotomes of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

         Two nights camping and hiking in the mountain forests of Rongai, on Kiliís east slope.

         Full support by camp crew and follow up vehicle.

         Two nightsí luxury camping in 10,000-acre private wildlife reserve on the western slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Observe herds of elephants from the tree house above the watering hole or on game drives.

         Two nights lodging in a private compound on the slopes of Mt. Meru, Kiliís sister mountain.

         Visits to Maasai and Wachagga communities en route.

         Walking safari and game drives in Arusha National Park.

         Visit to Arusha, safari capital of Tanzania. Time for shopping and souvenirs.
