Namibia cycling

Namibia is, undoubtedly, one of the most diverse and beautiful countries on earth, and while many international visitors choose to uncover Namibia on a self-drive tour or a small group escorted tour, we are taking it one step further with a 9-Day, 800km cycling adventure!


Sparsely populated (just 3 people per sq. km of land area), and still unspoilt by tourism, Namibia is the perfect place to cycle as the only traffic you are likely to encounter is that of the four-legged variety such as Oryx and Giraffe.

A unique sporting adventure, fully escorted by an experience cycle guide, it will take you to the southern part of the country, in what is sure to be a trip of a lifetime. Scheduled departures May – October, private tours available.
