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.

Biking in South Africa was magical!! Everything about the trip was amazing. Every place we went held a special feel. Absolutley loved Stellenbosch! Our dinner in Cape Town at the African Cafe was a once in a lifetime experience. The hotels were wonderful. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone and now with ebikes its a must do!!

South Africa: Cape Town & the Garden Route

My daughter and I had a great time on this trip. We were able to see and experience everything we wanted with this itinerary. The guides/leaders for the visit were outstanding in every way. There was so much beautiful scenery and interesting wildlife. The trip exceeded our expectations. It is a long way to go, but worth every minute.
