Cycle Namibia

Namibia is a vast country with wide open spaces and massive, endless skies. Sand dunes gradually turn into granite hills, whilst rocky outcrops with ancient paintings give way to vast plains where elephants, giraffes and lions roam. Travelling through the wilderness from behind the handlebar is, undoubtedly, one of the best ways of experiencing the varied landscape of this desert nation. Discover the country's highlights on two wheels and go on game drives in one of southern Africa's best game reserves, Etosha National Park. Combining the sense of freedom of exploring by bike with the sense of adventure of an overland truck, to cover large distances, this trip mixes Namibia's breathtaking scenery with its fantastic game viewing opportunities.
