  1. Cycling Safari
    Discover the back roads of East Africa on a ride through from the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro to the sparkling seas and white sand beaches of the Indian Ocean, through tucked away villages, lush rainforests and wildlife-filled savannah plains. The 16 day journey costs from £3,302 per person excluding flights and local bike hire.

  2. Desert Adventures
    Unleash your inner-Indiana Jones in Petra and pedal back in time in the deserts of Jordan. Ride along remote desert roads, camp out under the stars with the Bedouin in Wadi Rum and treat yourself to a soak in the salty waters of the Dead Sea. Nine days of desert adventure costs from £1,399 per person including flight, but excluding local bike hire.
