Date: 20th August 2012
Namibia Wildlife Resorts is pleased to introduce the 2012 Desert Knights Mountain-Biking Tour within the |Ai-|Ais Richtersveld Transfrontier Park which will take place from the 28th October to the 1st November 2012.
This is a 5-day multi-stage mountain-biking event starting at the Fish River Canyon View Point in Namibia and ending in the Richtersveld National Park in South Africa. Cycling is scheduled to take place during late afternoon into the late evening, at night over the full-moon period, and the event includes a portion of canoeing in the Orange River. The total distance to be covered is 275 km cycling and 34.5 km of canoeing down the Orange River.
This event is a collaboration between NWR, the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET), the South African Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA), South African National Parks (SANParks), and Peace Parks Foundation (PPF) as part of the trans-boundary conservation program.
The cost of participation is N$/Rand 5 000 per cyclist. Costs for non-cycling accompanying adults are N$ 3 750, and N$ 2 500 for children between the ages of 6 to 12 years. This fee covers camping for 6 nights (Sunday – Friday), all meals and snacks en route, water stations and the hiring of canoes for participants on Day 3.
Participants wishing to upgrade to accommodation may do so at an additional cost, at |Ai-|Ais and at Sendelingsdrift (subject to availability). Namibia Wildlife Resorts is also offering a 50% discount on accommodation at all of their facilities for participants who wish to extend their stay in Namibia (subject to availability – bookings to be made through the contact given below).
The |Ai-|Ais–Richtersveld Desert Knights Mountain-Biking tour is poised to become an annual event, and a must do on the regional biking calendar.
