The Kalahari Mountain Bike Traverse Tour

5 Day Kalahari Mountain Bike Traverse Tour

The Kalahari MTB Traverse is a new mountain bike tour in the Kalahari (Northern Cape) where you will cycle from lodge to lodge while your gear is transferred by Trisport staff. You will cycle on hard surfaces each day (no sand). On one day you will cycle for 10km over a hard saltpan. You will cycle through an area that they call the Lost city of the Kalahari and each night you will stay at a lodge and 1 night at a luxury tented camp. This area of the Kalahari is known for its red dunes and you will have a sundowner each night on top of a sand dune or overlooking a salt pan.
