Looking for something unique... Cycling through the Northern Tuli Reserve of Botswana is one of the most enjoyable and adventurous safari experiences on offer. Led by armed and knowledgeable local guides, the Cycle Mashatu Wilderness Trail provides a unique opportunity to ride at leisure along ancient elephant migration paths, cycle amongst great herds of wildlife and sleep under starlit African skies in comfortable tented accommodation. Great game viewing can be expected and on bike one gets closer than you would do on foot to the animals without the confines of being in a vehicle. Expect to see elephants, plenty of plains game and the odd predator (lion, leopard, hyena or cheetah) you may bump in to. The riding is tailor-made to a group's fitness levels, but usually entails a long morning's ride, followed by a scrumptious breakfast. During the late afternoons, guests embark on a 'sundowner' game drive to enjoy the always spectacular African sunset whilst sipping on a GNT or cold beer. The tours have scheduled departures and are 3 nights and 4 days. Although Mashatu is in Botswana, it is easily accessible from Johannesburg and Pretoria (5 and a half hour drive) and charter flights are also available.
