The Bicycle Safari Tour begins bright and early in Cape Town and journeys north past the picturesque Cape Winelands and the mighty Du Toitskloof Mountain Range before arriving at the Private Game Reserve. An expert wildlife ranger provides an in-depth orientation before travellers cycle out into the unspoilt, magical semi-desert Karoo landscape with its wide-open skies, arid mountains and endless dirt track.
This unique Cycle Safari in South Africa takes guests across the reserve, with zebra, wildebeest, eland, gemsbok, ostrich, springbok and many more animals inhabiting this area. Being on a bike allows them to get closer to the animals, spot their tracks, smell their scents and the myriad sounds emanating from the bush.
After a gourmet picnic lunch visitors either make their way into the main Big Five Reserve, where they embark on a signature vehicle safari drive which this is offered as an optional extra). In addition to getting close up to the Big Five, as well as giraffe, hippo and plains game, they visit the animal rehabilitation centre, home to lions, leopards and cheetah that have been rescued from inhumane conditions.
Or the group slowly journeys back to Cape Town through back roads and over majestic mountain passes, taking the picturesque route to Ceres, famous for its fruit juice. A break is taken at a family wine estate outside Wellington for a signature wine tasting.
Finally, after the Eco-Active experience of a lifetime and the various group activities, the group shuttles back to Cape Town in time for a spectacular sunset.
Please note: This tour can be expanded to include an overnight stay (or longer) at the luxurious reserve lodge, with extra safari drives and activities such as a visit to the nearby ostrich farms and excursions to the prominent San Bushman rock art site - and much more.
