Land of the Giants Tour 4-day MTB Cycling tour, Botswana

A combination of cycling and a true Bushveld Experience in Botswana’s Mashutu Game Reserve.  Mashatu, which is one of the largest privately owned game reserves in southern Africa, is not only a Big Five reserve but also provides a sanctuary to the largest herds of elephant on privately owned land on the continent.

The rugged terrain will test your cycling skills, but the views and wildlife viewing will be worth the hard paddling. Your cycling guide is an armed ranger who knows the bush and the animals extensively. Enjoy meals cooked on an open fire and spectacular night skies from the porch of your wooden hut. While you rest your weary bones around the campfire you can listen to the ranger’s stories.

Get woken up by the call of the wild as we prepare for another testing day of cycling through rocky outcrops, sandy riverbeds and open plains, searching for the perfect view. Tonight, as the sun sets, giving its last wink at the daylight, we settle once more around the fire listening to stories of folklore.

Depart Botswana, richer in knowledge, but sorer in our calves.
