Mountain Bike Trails


This activity is currently only available from Olifants camp and allows guests to explore Kruger's environment by means of a mountain bike. Participants are taken to the start of the trail in an open game viewing vehicle, with a bike trailer carrying the bikes behind the vehicle. Mountain bikes are supplied as well as backpacks, water bottles, bicycle helmets (compulsory), snacks and a juice. There is place for a maximum of six (6) participants per trail. Two qualified and armed field guides lead these trails where you can cycle in unspoilt bush.

Departure times for the Mountain Bike Trails must be confirmed with reception as times vary depending on the season. We offer Morning and Afternoon Mountain Bike Trails. These vary from three to four hours, depending on the route taken.

Full Day Trails are also available (reservations have to be made for all six participants for the latter trail). Please note that the full day trails will only be for very fit and experienced cyclists. No persons under the age of 16 years are permitted on these trails.

A certain degree of fitness is necessary; please remember appropriate comfortable bush clothing (neutral colours), insect repellent, binoculars, camera, correct footwear, hat, sun block lotion and personal medication. The guides carry a first aid kit and a hand held radio for communication with the base camp in cases of emergencies.

Should participants want to utilise their own personal Mountain Bikes, they are welcome to do so. The participants must then remember to take their own equipment i.e. puncture repair kits, tools, spares, tubes etc.

Book a spot on the mountain bike trails either through central reservations or Olifants Camp (013) 735 6606/7.
