Tour d'Afrique

PART OF THE

For 2014, your trans-Africa odyssey begins at the confluence of the Blue and White Nile in Khartoum, Sudan, a much maligned country whose peoples are among the world’s most friendly. Leaving the Arabic world and the heat of the eastern Sahara desert, the Tour ascends into the spectacular biblical landscapes of the Ethiopian plateau before descending towards the notorious lava road across northern Kenya.

The safari capital, Arusha, Tanzania marks the Tour’s midway point and the chance for riders to explore the legendary landmarks of Mt Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti Plain, and Ngorongoro Crater. Departing East Africa, we descend once again into the Great African Rift Valley and Lake Malawi’s beaches before turning our wheels southwest towards Zambia and the magnificent Victoria Falls.

While each year brings more pavement to the route, the Tour is designed and redesigned to ensure that riders experience every kind of surface imaginable, from the smooth flat tarmac of Botswana alongside which elephants roam, to the corrugated and sandy off-roads that lead to the world’s highest sand dunes and the Fish River Canyon in Namibia. Finally, the Tour spins into South Africa where we meet the Atlantic Ocean and, with Cape Town and Table Mountain in sight, raise our bikes in celebration of this unique and intrepid journey now completed.
