Bicycling (South Africa) - - RACE DIARY -

COST

R6 850 per per­son shar­ing. The group size is lim­ited to six peo­ple (six min­i­mum) and is led by a reg­is­tered guide. A ve­hi­cle will trans­port your lug­gage.

DATES

You can book your tour for any week­end be­tween March and Oc­to­ber 2018. Tours run over the week­end from Fri­day to Sun­day, e.g. 2-4 March 2018.

DAY 1 – FRI­DAY

The group meets at Bushveld Ter­race Ho­tel and Guest House, just out­side the Pha­l­aborwa gate. We do a 30-40km ride in the di­rec­tion of Letaba Ranch, stop­ping for a de­li­cious sun­downer drink on the way. We ar­rive back at Bushveld Ter­race in time to freshen up for a lovely din­ner in the restau­rant, and a night in the ho­tel.

DAY 2 – SATUR­DAY

The cy­cle tour starts early, and your group will be ac­com­pa­nied by two armed guides. From the ho­tel, you’ll cy­cle into the Kruger – this is Big Five coun­try! There will be reg­u­lar stops on the 45 km trail to look at an­i­mal tracks, watch birds and learn more about na­ture.

After break­fast, you’ll cy­cle to your exclusive camp­site for the night on the banks of the Letaba River. Lunch will be pre­pared and you can spend the rest of the af­ter­noon laz­ing next to the river. Later, have sun­down­ers, then set­tle around the camp­fire for a de­li­cious din­ner.

DAY 3 – SUN­DAY

We wake up to the sound of fran­col­ins and oher birds in the trees, and have a full break­fast next to the Letaba River be­fore set­ting off on the bi­cy­cles. After a two- hour ride we’ll meet the cater­ing team next to the Malopeni River for re­fresh­ments. Then we’ll follow a dif­fer­ent route back to the Pha­l­aborwa gate, where we’ll say good­bye.
