About The Kenya Cycle

This Kenya Cycle covers a distance of 305km through the Kenyan countryside over five days. It's a very scenic route as we ride through rural Kenya with many fun downhill sections as well as tough climbs. The route provides one with a real insight into rural life in Kenya. For the most part we will be riding on dirt roads with very little traffic.

Kenya is mostly recognised for being home to Africa’s famous “Big Five” (Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Leopard and Buffalo) but most people don’t realise that Kenya also offers some of the best adventure sport in the world. Kenya is a country of tremendous diversity; landscapes vary from glaciated mountains with snow-capped peaks, to dense forest to flat desert plains. Along this journey you will learn about Kenyan culture by chatting with our local guides, Kenyan’s say that ‘You will arrive as a visitor and leave as a friend’!

As well as five fantastic days of cycling we have time for two game drives with fantastic opportunities to spot game including the big five. We also spend an afternoon rafting on the awesome Tana River.
