From the foothills of Kilimanjaro with its lush mountain villages and Maasai steppe below, to the verdant Usambara Mountains down to the hot and humid Pangani Coast of the Indian Ocean, there are countless miles of dirt roads, footpaths, and single track to explore in Tanzania.
A bicycle tour can be the centerpiece of your African adventure or added as an extension to any itinerary.
The heartbeat of Kilimanjaro is found in the mountain villages that encircle its lower slopes. The three days of riding begin in Mbahe Village, circumnavigate the mountain counterclockwise, and finish at Simba Farm in West Kilimanjaro, passing through coffee and banana farms, crossing cool mountain streams, and out to remote Maasai outposts – all on two wheels!
