Some Basics:
  • Bicycle Africa specializes in medium soft bike tours / cultural adventure for Westerners seeking to learn more about Africa at a person-to-person level not usually available to tourists.
  • We offer bicycle tours in all regions in Africa because no one place or country in Africa epitomizes Africa.
  • All programs are small group (6 to 10 people).
  • Most are self-contained bicycle touring -- occasionally programs have a gear vehicles.
  • Each program is unique and highlights the diversity of the culture, social institutions and environment, and the complexity of the history, economy and society.
  • The cycling varies from program to program but is generally easy to moderate, averaging under 40 miles (65 km) per days, with side trips available for those with extra energy.
  • Accommodations reflect the diversity of Africa and range from western style hotels to basic traditional village housing.
  • Safety and security is a concern in our selection of destinations and routes, but we can't sanitize the world (see next point and "myths of Africa").
  • The program is ideal for the realist who appreciates the world and the wonderful rewards to be gained for the modest rigors of bicycle touring.
  • Cyclists from 9 to 70+ have enjoy these holidays.
  • Participants receive comprehensive pre¬≠departure materials with detailed instructions on setting up your bike, packing, training, suggested reading and other information so they are properly prepared.
  • Programs are open to everyone.  We do not restrict participation based on race, creed, color, national origins, religion, gender, sexual orientation.
  • More on the Philosophy and History behind our small group, backroad, active, cross-cultural, educational, environmentally friendly, economically responsible, moderate adventure level, sustainable eco-tourism . Perusing our Travelogue can also help you get a feel for the program.
  • Bicycle Africa is designed and directed by David Mozer, an African studies specialist and pioneer of cycle touring in Africa, since 1975.

"For that man who travels by his own exertions no day can be dull and no journey without an abiding interest....Very wisely it was said, All travel is dull exactly in proportion to its rapidity." HW Tilman, "Snow on the Equator," McMillian, 1938.  Reprinted in "The Seven Mountain-Travel Books," published by The Mountaineers, Seattle, 1983.  Tilman bicycled across Africa from Cameroon to Kenya in 1933.
