Help! What shall we do on our first whole day in Kruger (apart from driving!)?
Want to do one activity and can't decide whether morning walk, morning cycle or afternoon cycle would be the most rewarding in mid August at Olifants camp? Being incredibly indecisive unusually hence the call for inspiration!
_________________ I need to plan another trip to make the pain go away!
Tried a search, to no avail. Has anyone done the Olifants mountain bike ride. I am assuming it requires a minimum number of 4-6 people and is guided. Is it a worthwhile change from driving around looking for animals? Is there a required fitness level? Any advice appreciated.
Quick question for the biking enthusiasts - can you do the Olifants mtb trails when you stay at Letaba? In other words, can you drive from Letaba to Olifants in the morning and still be in time for the morning ride?
Please note that due to gate closing times you will not be able to make it at Olifants if you book at Letaba. Most of our morning activities take place before gate opening time while afternoon activities take place towards gate closing time.
Mountain Bike Trails allows guests to explore Kruger's environment by means of a mountain bike. This activity allows for a minimum of 2 and maximum of 6 people per trail. Full Day Trails are also available only for very fit experienced cyclists. No person under the age of 16 years are permitted on these trails.

We wanted to do this in May this year and when phoned a few weeks ahead I was told that all the bikes were broken and they weren't doing rides at the moment. I was told to check back when we got to Olifants. When we did they said they were still broken, though the bikes were parked in the reception and for the most part looked ok. Are they actually doing the rides now ?
