Explore the Kalahari on your Mountain bike

Riding through the Kalahari Desert is an incredible adventure. The vast expanse of red sand dunes, dry riverbeds, and granite koppies creates a dramatic and unforgiving landscape that is both beautiful and harsh. As you traverse through this semi-arid region, you would experience firsthand the meaning of the Twana word: “the great thirst” or “a waterless place,” as the name suggests.

Throughout history, the Kalahari Desert has been traversed by explorers and adventurers, from David Livingstone in 1849 to the Dorsland Trekkers in 1878. These early travelers faced immense challenges, often losing lives and livestock along the way.

Today, the Kalahari Desert is protected by game reserves, preserving its unique ecosystem and wildlife. While diamond and mineral deposits have been found in the region, conservation efforts have ensured that much of the desert remains untouched by industrial development.

Riding through the Kalahari Desert is a journey through a landscape rich in history, wildlife, and natural beauty. It would provide a unique opportunity to experience the vastness and the majesty of one of the world’s most iconic deserts.

Immerse yourself in the captivating world of the Kalahari, where the Kalahari Meerkat and the mesmerizing Vulture Restaurants await your discovery. Witness a symphony of vibrant birdlife and encounter a diverse array of wildlife.

But that’s not all! Prepare to embark on an exhilarating cycling adventure to the legendary Kalahari Lost City, pedaling across a magnificent salt pan.
