Tanzania Cycling Activity Holiday

Cycling Tanzania’s main roads is not recommended and can be dangerous. Secondary roads are ideal. Country roads attract cyclists for point to point journeys. Bicycles can be rented about 500 per hour, and cycling in Tanzania’s national parks or wildlife reserves is prohibited. In theory bicycles can be brought on public transport but often drivers will refuse to carry them. In Zanzibar you can transport your biccyle by ferry. Cycling tours are also popular and can be booked through the International Bicycle Fund or AfriRoots. Hoopoe Safaris and Summits Africa can both plan luxury cycling in the northern area of Tanzania. Tanzania Bike Safaris is also a good company. Be certain to carry basic supplies, including water, and a spare tire and plenty of patch tubes for your bicycle. Cycling is best done in the early morning or late afternoon and in the dry season (June to September).
