Discover Africa

Hemingway famously wrote, “I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up and was not happy.” On a bike tour in Africa with VBT, you’ll discover exactly what he meant.

Earth’s oldest inhabited continent boasts an endless variety of cultural wonders and breathtaking landscapes that inspire and enlighten. Cosmopolitan cities move to a modern pulse while ancient villages cling to tradition, vast vineyards blanket gentle slopes as magnificent wildlife roam timeless nature preserves.

An Africa biking tour showcases one of the world’s most beautiful continents from a unique perspective. On two wheels, you’ll pedal alongside monolithic sandstone mountains, vibrant wildflower valleys and rocky headlands lashed by crashing surf. Winding roads deliver you to secluded coves, vast plains, and welcoming wineries.

Explore Africa’s national parklands and head out in search of the famed Big Five: lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos, and rhinos. Come face to face with an ostrich at a local farm, or observe the adorable denizens of a penguin colony as they frolic on a secluded beach. The opportunities to see stunning wildlife are endless on a bike tour in Africa with VBT.

Cycling South Africa: Cape Town & the Garden Route

Our VBT guide team was knowledgeable, professional and great fun. They introduced us to the stunning scenery and to the political and social complexities of life in South Africa while fully attending to ride support. The pre and post extensions to Kapama and Victoria Falls provided exposure to wildlife and to beauty of the African bush and simply cannot be missed.
